Recently split and ex is saying £200 a month for our two young children. They won't be seeing him due to a police investigation. Is he having a laugh or is this really the reality of it?

It depends how much he earns to be honest OP. Have you checked the CMS calculator to see if it’s worth going through them?

They won't be seeing him due to a police investigation?! I'd be going through CMS. Don't want any contact with him.

Only works if you know his salary. He may not be open about it or may now have none.

£2000 per month and two other child from a previous relationship. Just when I’m looking at house outgoings, clothes, outings, savings, occasions, etc it just seems like a drop in the ocean.

Ah. If he has other children then they are taken into account to a certain extent.
