My controlling ex has started paying less by direct pay to me. its been going on for months and this is the response I got from them 'Until it reaches 40% we can't do anything!!' Its pathetic the amounts he short changes my child by. £1 here, 8p there!! This could go on for years and he's doing it because he can! He's missed a whole payment before the paid at the 11th hour when they threatened the collect and pay. Its all wrong and I just wanted to warn others.

I wondered how long it would be before the stories of it is worse have come out..I haven't heard anyone say it is better at all.

Its a joke. They won't even write to him about it! Can't issue non standard letters apparently!!

So he is paying less than the CMS instructed but they won't do anything about it??

That doesn't sound right to me OP. I would contact them again.

That surprises me actually. My ExH underpaid me by £5 three weeks in a row and they were happy to suggest chasing him for it and making him pay via them which would incur a fairly hefty charge on his part. The threat of the additional charge so made him sort himself out.

I double checked and I can go for collect and pay now. They would send him a letter to collect a direct debit which he can refuse to pay! This would mean the 20% charge on top every month. Then they would take proceedings to place attachment of earnings at a cost to him of £50 plus the 20% for at least 12 months. I cannot for the life of me figure why he would do this to himself

I'm glad they're actually chasing it up - he shouldn't be able to get away with messing around with it like that.
