UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but need some further information first
How old is your child and what income does your ex have?
Is your daughter still in Secondary education?
I am sorry but the news is not good in terms of Child Maintenance as no claim can be backdated - and it is no longer possible to make a claim yourself
However your daughter could make a claim in her own right if she can show that her reasonable needs cannot be met from her resources
If you were ever married to each other then there may be other options - please ask if this is indeed the case
I am sorry not to give better news
So there was a financial order sealed by the Court?
Is there any way that you can check as it could be important
