Do they speak a different language or what? I had to repeat myself over and over. Think he was trying to catch me out.
Anyway, even though I'm on IS he reckons if ex has the boys 3 nights a week I may lose Child benefit?
He kept asking how many nights ex had dss since I left in March and I said I hadn't bothered keeping check seen as ex hasn't paid me regularly. I suppose I should've done. ex has kept a diary apparently.
I've made an appointment with a solicitor next week to go for a divorce as he isn't bothering. Plus to protect myself too.

your ex might have the boys 3 nights per week but you are still the parent with care so will receive the child related benefits, I think the guy is talking rubbish.

If parenting is 50/50 he won't have to pay via the CSA you will still be entitled to Child Benefit, tax credit etc
