    Hi Michael

    Sorry to read about you predicament there. That jump from £150 to £311 per month is exponential. Did you get an explanation for this mammoth increase? Don’t lie down and take, fight back.

    If you now have a partner with kids, those kids needs to be taken into account in any Calculation. If the CMS have not already done so, your case needs to be reviewed and a new reduced calculation made.

    Finally, if your ex-partner is stopping you seeing the children, you must take legal action. First thing to do is to seek mediation and failing that, take the matter to court.

    I can help with all of the above if you want assistance. Contact me at http://www.selwynslaw.co.uk or [email protected]

    All the best

    Hi I legally adopted 2 children in 2014 with my ex partner. We were paid a adoption allowance to take these kids which worked out 750 a month. Which we means tested on both our wages. I split last year from her an agreed for her to keep adoption allowance an wouldn’t ask me for maintenance. She has now gone to csa an they will not take that into account an are asking me to pay 80 a week. Find it unfair that they will not take this allowance into account

Got something to say?
