When my ex and I split up it was agreed he would pay 10% of his take home pay as maintenance for our Son. I have him 4 days a week, my ex has him 3 day a week. He expects me to pay for all his cloths, school uniform, school trips etc. If he buys shoes for him he decucts the cost from the maintenance before he pay it into my account. If he buys books for him to read he deducts it. This month he only paid 229.48 instead of 244, I have not been told why I was paid short. What can I do. The Judge did not sign off on the split of the finances as it was too much in his favour.
Province/Country relating to question : West Sussex
Dont know what to do.
HiSo far as maintenance is concerned your only option is to apply to the CSA.You can work out how much you will receive using the calculator here http://www.cmoptions.org/en/calculator/calculator.aspWhilst the figure you get may be less he will not be able to make any deductionsClaire
