Do I pay CSA if ex puts children in a boarding school?
February 27, 2012
I wonder if you could please help me with a question I have with regards to paying child maintenance through the CSA
I pay the CSA monthly towards my children – this money obviously in turn gets passed onto my ex partner.
The children live with my ex partner.
My question is, my ex partner is going to be putting the children in a boarding school and I was wanting to know if I would still be required to pay the child maintenance that would go to her if the children are in boarding school?? She is not actually paying for the schooling – she is claiming through the government for a grant as she has said she is not mentally stable enough to look after the children And therefore this means they would be in boarding school full time and would not be in her care.
So could you please tell me if I would still be made to pay the maintenance if she would not be looking after the children at all?
As mentioned – she is paying nothing towards the boarding school, this would be funded by the government, and she would not be having the children stay with her as she has said she is not able to care for them.
Please could you give me some advice
