Hello, my name is Marcus.
Just for the avoidance of doubt where do you and the children live?
No need for a call - request was automated.
I can respond in this thread.
So you all live in England but you are employed by a company based in Jersey - is that correct.
As you live in the UK then the Child Maintenance Service can assess you but would find it hard to enforce if you did not pay as they cannot apply for an attachment of earnings.
Is there any specific reason why you ask?
Are you paying as per the child support calculator.
In honesty your ex partner would be misguided to go down the CMS route due to enforcement problems.
So as long as you are paying close to the online calculator assessment she should simply accept it.
That is correct.
Potentially if you failed to pay then your ex could get a court order in England and enforce it in the court in Jersey via REMO being the Recepical Enforcement of Maintenance Orders who could take it direct from source. That process is lengthy so more reason for her to agree.
You are most welcome.
