If I change my job, what will happen regarding my maintenance?

I am currently paying child maintenance for two of my three children. The third child who will be 18 this week lives with me and my new wife.

I am considering a life change by either changing jobs, which would possibly lead to a reduction in salary, or move abroad into semi retirement, again meaning reduction in my income. I currently pay my ex -wife £652 a month. What effect would my life changes have and would I have to continue to meet the £652 a month payments. My other two children are 14 and 16 years of age and still at school.

Also what age am I legally required to carry on paying maintenance?

One thought on “If I change my job, what will happen regarding my maintenance?

  1. If have no arrears matey, cease to be habitual residenthe in the UK. Move out of the jurisdiction, check country first as some have agreements, the only way your ex can squeeze you for money then is by remo.
    Get rid of all attachments in uk and become a resident in another country check though it’s not in agreement first.
