Can she have back pay if I’ve never missed a payment?

September 28, 2014

Hi my ex wife wants more money off me for our 13 year old or she is going to the CSA.

This isn’t a problem but she wants 5 years back pay.

Is this realistic as I’ve not missed one direct debit in 5 years?

    With the new maintenance options now in place I can’t see her getting very far to be honest….she’ll have to pay to open a case up and then lose 4% of her payments….is it worth it?

    They might tell you to work it out via mediation or go to court.

    Beat her to it and phone them up yourself to get some advice, the new system is being set up to stop pwcs getting unreasonable and greedy.

    Best of luck
