Topic: Ex tells children of my financial situation
Written By: kmiller - 9 days ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
I have been divorced for over 4 years. My ex has been paying child support and spousal maintenance during this period. I also work as a teacher and he is a CEO of a large company. He is continuously reminding our children that he is paying support, shows them figures and encourages them to put pressure on me to spend. I am a careful person with the money that I have and earn disproportionately li

Hi Randall, Thank you for writing. It is great that you are taking care of your boy and I wish my ex was doing the same. As parents frankly we should do that....divorce or not. As with you, he would be able to lower his contributions if he took care of our daughter even for a few days a month. However, my ex lives abroad, does not visit the UK regularly enough to avoid being deemed domicile he

I totally agree that these 'pay for vaccinations' are rediculously expensive. I mself only recently went to Asia and never had them. However, to eliminate doubt I had the nurse write the price down for me and also of course my ex could call our local Health Center to check himself or even better take our daughter there but he just refuses to communicate.

I find £750 is sufficient to cover child's share of the household's basic expenses, with some money left over. As a custodial parent I can reasonably spend that money on her extras, such as going out expenses etc. However should exceptionally large outgoings, such as in this case vaccinations come out of the child support? While £750 if sufficient, £200 is not and that what she will be left wi

Laughingirl, Child support I belive technically is supposed to cover housing, food, and clothing but the costs of raising a child usually involve more than just these basic needs. There are expenses for school and after-school activities as well as holidays/trips that do not come under child support as these could be (as in our case) very high and impossible to pay from monthly CS. Well, that

Andyk, the vaccination amount has been quoted by local Health Center travel nurse...I see no reason for her to make up sums

Thank you LJC10, His take home is approx. what you estimate, most likely a bit more. Child support amount was determined by court order, they deemed it appropriate for CS. Others that I know in similar positions receive approx. similar amounts. I never thought till now that it is particularly low.

Forum: UK Divorce Forum
My ex pays child support of £750 monthly towards upkeep of our daughter. Besides that he barely sees her (may be 1 in every 90 days) and is not involved in any shape or form in parenting. Our daughter is going on a school/community project to Asia and requires vaccinations from which some are free and others we have to pay for i.e. Menangitas B, Rabies etc. These vaccinations come to £500+.

You could try and notify her a week early yourself that you've made plans for the agreed days of the coming week and she cannot alter the arrangement. I agree with all comments above I.e. only court is able to make permanent arrangement and even then, if one of your job hours change you would need to review the child care hours yourself. In all honesty, I do not think going to court on this matte

I am in a similar situation to you and it makes me worried just reading about this. Your ex is not allowed to make variation to court order himself. However, he can apply to court to have the amounts reviewed....costly exercise. You know your ex best......I would though try and make it official if you are planning to agree to reduced amounts. For example, you could ask him for a letter from work

Indeed my son is 18 and an adult now but I am strong believer in family and support that is created through that. He has completely lost all that and now I feel 'free falling'. We've sorted in court all to do with FMH via financial share. Me and our daughter moved out and my ex kept the house.

Written By: kmiller - 2 years ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Court order indicated that I am the primary carer of the children and my ex husband is to pay child support. However, my 18 yrs old son refused to move out and remained leaving at our ex marital home and my ex is not paying child support for him. My ex does not live with my son as he is resident in another country and visits him sporadically (couple of days a month at best). In the household is
