My ex is saying he cant pay child maintenance as he has to

Resolved Question:

My ex is saying he can't pay child maintenance as he has to go bankrupt and his business has closed pending liquidation, he can't work to earn money and can't support his child, what can I do?

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately you can't force him to work and if he gives up work the CSA will also give up seeking child maintenance from him unless and until you tell them that he has another job.

Sorry I can't be more positive but the system doesn't legislate for people who give up working.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
