Was the court order made in the UK or Spain?
How is he not keeping up with the payments, and has he given a good reason?
Hello, I didn't hear from you.
Can I assist you further with your question?
OK, of course. Do you have the yearly amount of child maintenance?
OK. So you need to do the following:
Work out the amount for each year paid under the current order.
Then use an RPI calculator to adjust the amounts - I'll send a link to one (it says it's for rent reviews but the formula is the same, as the RPI is the same, so it will serve the purpose you need it to. You'll have to either do an overall calculation with the total amount paid over the years and have the RPI as a lump sum figure, or work on a year by year basis to get real time increases as you go.
This should give the increases for the RPI.
The link is here:
I hope this helps?
