Thank you for this.
He is saying that as he is agreeing to pay above what the CSA would enforce him to pay, then he is within his rights to amend it/reduce the amounts he previously agreed to even though it is much lower than the consent order - is this right?
Could he apply for a CMS himself via the CSA?
If I apply for an enforcement order, won't they just look at what CSA would ask him to pay regardless of what the Consent Order states?
I don't want to be even worse off financially if I applied to court for an enforcement order and they just enforce CSA amounts which would be potentially lower than his suggested amount and much lower than the original consent order. I just don't know what to do for the best!
OK thank you Clare.
Is it likely that the court would take into account why the amounts were as they were initially, if in the meantime he applied to the CMS for an assessment or would they just go with that the amounts that the CMS state?
What was the point of the 'Rider' if he can potentially change it just by applying to the CMS?
