How can my ex get away with this?

October 15, 2014

My ex and I have 5 children ages from 7 to 17. They all chose to live with me, their father, because of their mother’s drinking and abuse. She said she wants nothing to do with any of them except the 7 year old but had agreed she should live with me.

Three months ago she removed her from school and took her to live with her and her new partner. I have been unable to have any contact with her since then. She has been ordered to pay £180 a month for the other children, (excluding the 17 year old as he is in work) but has now left her job voluntarily so she doesn’t have to pay.

The new calculation is £6.50 a week! Can she get away with this? She has a new partner who is supporting her.
