What happens when someone has decided to stop maintenance,

This answer was rated:

What happens when someone has decided to stop maintenance, not because this person doesn'nt have it, but because he wants the mother to sign up to his terms of conditions, which he just made up, says he won't pay anymore until she signs, they both have signed up legally to conditions, is he breaking the law. Thank you

My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Where do the children live and what court orders have been made to date
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The children live in Ireland one court case when mother was granted primary carer and maintenance order agreed to be paid 1st each month, this is second month no money was transferred
Which court ordered the maintenance - and is her ex employed or self employed?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The family court r in Braintree in Essex , the Father is employed
The the mother can make an application to the court to enforce the maintenance by way of an Attachment of Earnings Order which will mean that her maintenance will be deducted from his earnings by his employed and sent to her by his employers
Although she wil have to pay the court fee up front she can recover that from her ex.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
