This answer was rated:

Hi, I have a quick query about my CMS payments. I have had trouble setting up and me ex giving honest information to the CMS. Finally sorted late last year and he has now changed jobs. Didn’t tell myself or CMS so owes arrears again. I have spoken to CMS and said I am happy to wait until March for them to review the situation fully. My ex wanted to pay me direct but after advice from CMS I messaged him to say I’d rather leave it to CMS than him pay me direct. Against my wishes he has now paid me directly. Part of his Panic/Controlling behaviour toward me. If I have told him not to pay direct and go through the correct channels but he has done so anyway, can the CMS take this into account? This means I’d have to accept a direct payment and I am not willing to do so. He has labelled his transaction CMS payment. Will I have to send this back to him. I will now need to prove I have given his back and it causes further disruption to my case with the CMS. I appreciate any advice you can offer. I know this may not seem like a major deal but it will affect me and my children

Hi, thank you for your message. I would advise that you do not spend the money but instead contact CMS to let them aware of the situation. As long as they know what is happening and can guide you accordingly you should be fine.
