Robert is now 21 .. his maintenance will cease in June when he finishes his degree.
Elliot is 18 and starts uni in September
They are 13 year old twins
I appreciate the comment about the amount being correct
the Court Order dated 24/12/2002 specifies i have to pay until 17th birthday, or complete full time tertiary education or to end of first degree course ... how would i argue i should only pay until age 20 - is this the current law ?
Also if i reduce my salary and my employer increases THEIR pension contributions in order to attain my pension fund requirements at age 55 can the Court still make me pay the £463 even though my P60 earnings will have reduced ??
One final query having read your reply. Section b of the court order refers to what sum must be paid until the end of first degree.
'The payment to be varied each year, with effect from the payment due on the 25th April 2008, in line with the Child Support Agency guidelines or any system or scheme which replaces it. It is recorded that the current calculations based on the petitioner paying 20% of 80% of his monthly net earned income. The Petitioner to provide details to the respondent of his monthly net income for the year by 4pm on 5th April each year.'
Is it still worth us going to court to argue she has invoked the CMC rules which would make the court order redundant? Or does this paragraph show that the CMC calculations can be used?
