Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is*****’ve been asked to look at this for you, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I will look over this and come back to you shortly with a response.
Can you tell me - were/ are you married?
Do you have any children under 18?
Do you own any assets such as property together?
Have you ever contacted the child maintenance service yourself?
The CMS guidelines say that he should contribute approximately 16% of his gross weekly income to the upbringing of his 2 children.
So it depends on what he is earning to be honest.
In terms of a claim, the CMS or the court will not backdate, so any claim would only be valid from the date it is made.
Can I clarify anything further in that case?
If you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions, should you have them.
