Former Partner not paying maintenance money towards the children.
I am a single mother of two children below the age of 10 yrs old.
My ex and I broke up 3 yrs ago, he is currently living with his current partner and the children go to his most weekends from Friday to a Sunday. He has been told by the CSA that he needs to pay £40 a week in maintenance payments. When he was told this he went sick and advised them he did not have an income. He has now told them he is self empolyed.
He has boasted to other parents at the childrens school, that now he is self empolyed he can sort it so that I dont get any money. I dont know what to do.
My income is to high that I dont get help with rent or council tax, I pay everything myself. When it comes to trips and clothes I have to save to make sure I can get it for them. If I tell him this, he doesnt care. Like I said he can prove to CSA he is not earning enough as he does his own books.
I dont know what to do and I've hit a dead end, I'm sure he just wants me to give in and to be honest I'm close to it, any advice is welcome.
