Him still being employed isn't the point though as maintenance is paid as a percentage of earnings. So if he's earning less, he will pay less and vice versa. Hopefully he'll be back to work as soon as possible.

Thank you, thought that would be the case but with him still technically being employed, thought I would check smile

He would only be eligible to pay £5 a week while he is on SSP as he does not have the means to pay more at that time, so no he would not accrue arrears it would only increase if/when he returned to work if his income was high enough.

My ex has been off sick for 4 weeks and had just told me he's run out of company sick pay and is moving to ssp

I'm guessing the payments will drop to £5 per week while he is receiving ssp but does it then just go back to normal once he returns to work or will he be deemed to be in arrears?
