Hi, thank you for your question. It appears that given you are remortgaging now, his ex-partner will be released from the mortgage and therefore that will be settled. I highly doubt that a court will agree it is appropriate to sell the property given this development.
Furthermore, as the financial settlement was made by consent, after 12 months of the date of the consent order either of them would be entitled to apply to the CMS for a calculation which will supersede the child maintenance amount in the consent order - and unless she can providde evidence that he is earning more income than is included in the CMS assessment she will unlikely succeed in any appeal.
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.

You have referred to his SA302.
Does your partner also receive dividends?
If he does then you need to recalculate the maintenance including those in the Income figure - whilst the CMS do not do so the first assessment when asked to re-assess they do.
