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!!

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.
