So finally put in a claim to Cms for my ex. He is expected to pay a grand total of £6.72 a week to "support" our 4 children when in reality that just about buys the babies nappies but yeh. It says he is due to pay from the 27th of January but that I won't receive any payments to April?! How does that make sense? Does this sound right? Obviously not in desperate need of the extra few pennies pounds but can't understand why so long for payments to start.
I have no idea why that would take so long! I'm still with the CSA, I switch over to the CMS in April. Had to argue a bit about not opting for a 'private arrangement', even though I left XP because of domestic violence.
I've got a deduction of earnings order on the bastard, but I've even been messed around with that. The system is beyond flawed.
