Topic: Re: New baby with new partner - child maintenance
Written By: MattSmy - 3 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thanks, it was always the plan to have a child with my partner but of course we couldn't foresee the future at the time when financials were discussed - seems as though the CSA/ gov website thinks there will be a difference if circumstances change.

Hello, I will become a dad again later on in the year and have a court order to pay child maintenance to the ex. Can I reduce that amount once the new child is born or will it have to stay the same? Will it need to go to court again?

Thanks for the response - I would have thought the ex suddenly having a full time job is a significant change in circumstance? No? How can it be fair that I'd have to pay SM, child maintenance, private school fees, hand over the majority of the equity of the FHM and then rent or take on a substantial mortgage? In terms of a disincentive to seek work, isn't SM exactly that? Scottish women seem to

Hi all, I have a theoretical question - my ex will end up with a mortgage free house, spousal maintenance, possibly for life, and child maintenance, for another 3-4 years. That amount will more than cover her bills, she does not work at the moment and she is saying she has mental health issues and is too stressed to do so. There is little doubt in my mind that she will have a job once the set

Thanks both for the responses - Puma, looking forward to hearing your update! Lanzo, how did you manage to get a clean break? How old is your ex if you dont mind me asking and is she working? Thanks.

Hi everyone - what are people's experiences on judgements around sale of FHM in final hearing or FDR? Ex is still in the house (5-bed, way above her needs), i pay the mortgage and she has rejected a number of offers on the house. At the moment, it doesn't look like it's going to sell any time soon and she also rejected an offer for me to buy her out. Clearly, she wants to stay in the house for as

Hi puma, absolutely stick to your guns. There is no way she'll get £1,700 in spousal with a part time job, plus a part of your bonus and half of your pension! I earn just over what you do, the ex refuses to get a job (any whatsoever, and goes for the old mental health chestnut) and the judge at my FDR thought the right amount for spousal would be just over £1,200 until retirement, no bonus % an
