Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.

Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.

Is the amount you are paying the CMS calculated amount?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
The CMS Calculated it - furthermore my son does not want to see me - 3 things - the cms is too much. If I am paying this, I want to know his grades and attendance, otherwise,can I pay less?

OK. I't's calculated as a percentage of your income, and based on the amount of time you spend with him. So you can't reduce the amount unless the CMS agree to reduce it I'm afraid, or you will be pursued for the arrears.

Regardless of whether you have contact you should have access to information from your son's school though.

Can I clarify anything?
