On the marlborough college summer school 2015 website. Classical Guitar - Colin Speight Course notes, reads about the tutor '...and has been in full time guitarist/teacher for over twenty years.
I would like to know what my position is in gaining back dated money owed to his daughter for maintenance given that he states in his bibliography that he has been employed for the last 20 years in a full time position.
His last contact back in 2009 stated that he would let me know when his position changed from being unemployed. Either way he is lying, either he wasnt unemployed back in 2009 or he is lying now that he was employed in 2009 and the years either side of that.
How simple it would seem that it is for a non resident parent living abroad, to avoid paying what should be statutory child maintenance. I ask the question, how do I go about getting what is rightfully owed to his daughter, or am I basically wasting my time.
It seems that anyone can avoid paying maintenance by just a few simple steps.
1. moving abroad. 2. pretending to be unemployed. 3. Being unemployed for a short period of time and notifying the child support agency about that. 4. Once in full time employment, not informing the child support agency. 5. Being employed but perhaps being paid cash in hand so the money received goes un detected.
6. Avoiding paying maintenance by any means.7. Making the process of getting the maintenance from the person not paying extremely difficult so in the end you decide once again can you be bothered to go through the process. 8. having to pay a huge amount of money for solicitors, and lawyers to get back what is ultimatly a pitance amount of money.
I look forward to hearing from you with perhaps some hopeful news.
