Hi, thank you for your question. What is your ex-partner's gross taxable income?
Thanks for confirming. Firstly, you will only be able to apply for a top-up child maintenance order through the courts if your ex-partner's gross taxable income is £3000 per week or more. Otherwise, the court does not have jurisdiction to deal with this and will refer you back to the CSA.
If his gross taxable income, including the rental income is over £3000 per week you can apply to your local family court for a top-up order using Form A1 and a £255 court fee.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
Thanks for confirming - even if the £32,000 is considered as his gross income, in addition to his earned income this is still below the CSA limit and the court will no accept jurisdiction for child maintenance
Even then his weekly gross income will be £1884.62 per week
Thanks. If you were unable to meet the housing or substantial needs of the children then the same form A1 mentioned earlier can be used to pursue an application for lump sum order to court.
