Hi, I'm Lea
Sue the mother for what?
Please read the following:
Firstly, see my numbered points - I don't do calls, hence my numbered list.
Secondly, this is not a chat service, it is an email service, so responses are not always instantaneous.
And thirdly, as per point 6 in my numbered list, I don't have anything to do with the finances of this site - I have not been paid, and won't be paid until you rate my response.
On the basis of what you have written, you do not have a legal basis on which to sue the mother.
She is entitled to the full assessed amount of child maintenance via the CMS, and if it is not paid, irrespective of any agreement between you, then it can be enforced by the CMS. If you had wanted to reduce the amount you should have done so officially by contacting the CMS.
As you have several children and your income appears to have reduced, you can ask the CMS for a reassessment of your payments. They may reduce them.
You're very welcome.
All the best.
