Hi, thank you for your question. Unless it states in the order that he is allowed to make such deductions it will not be allowed and he will have accrued arrears regarding the payments. You need to formally write to him and inform him that his liability is in accordance with what is stated in the court order and that he can not make deductions unless it is stated in the order, and that he will have accrued arrears which he must settle. If he does not you can apply to court for enforcement of the order using form D50K and a £155 court fee to your local family court.

The simple issue is that the court has made an order for him to pay £3500 a month. It is not for him to decide to reduce this and unless the order provides for reductions then he must pay the full amount ordered and you can apply to enforce it and he will be liable for arrears.
You will need to obtain a copy of the order and your solicitors will be the quickest way to do this.
You will then need to write to him to request the arrears and that he continues to meet the ordered payments within a reasonable time or you will pursue a court application to enforce the order. If he fails to comply or respond you can pursue a court application using form D40K (here: http://www.familylaw.co.uk/system/uploads/attachments/0002/0863/D50K.pdf ) to your local family court together with a £155 court fee.
