Will my ex have access to my redundancy pay?

November 25, 2013

Ok I need some help.My ex has been to and from the CSA and is currently accepting a private arrangement.thing is i dont trust her as she has played some nasty tricks despite me never missing a payment and even paying more than the required amount!She seems hell bent on being awkward despite having an icome £200 pw more than me!

I am facing redundancy and will be entitled to around £40 k if I go but I have debts to pay off(many incurred through divorce) and will be lefty with about £30k.This equates approx 2 years take home pay.My total settlementy if I go is £42 k of which the forst £30k is tax free.

I need to live and find a job but will pay her my usual maintenance as agreed while I can.

My question is can she get any of the lump sum(Im told she cannot touch the first £30k).If she can get some how much?I have the choice of putting any amount over £30k into my pension if necessary.
Also, if I got a self employed job what can she touch of that?Im thinking if she gets a sniff I have a lump sum she will try and get some!Thanks

    No she will not be entitled to your money. If you have any arrears to pay through the CSA they will push for you to pay them off.

    My gut feeling is your ex would be shooting herself in the foot re-opening a CSA case. She should count herself lucky with your private arrangement and you would be required to pay only £ 5 per week while on job seekers allowance if she persists. I doubt she could touch your redundancy payment unless there are arrears to consider.
