UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your question and for asking for me.
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Is this spouse or child maintenance and is it paid under the terms of a court order?
How old are the children?
How much does he earn?
The CSA has been replaced by the CMS - and whilst there is a charge involved it is minimal and he will have to pay the bulk of it
The process is set out here
and you will receive 16% of his gross income - he does not have to pay for your eldest I am afraid - unless you are married in which case you can make a court application for maintenance for her.
I hope that this is of assistance please ask if you need further details
