Maintenance won’t be considered with s court order.
if not paid correctly go to the cms directly.
Sadly what has driven you to workft won’t be considered.
what will be considered is whether the request is reasonable and in your child’s best interests. That needs to be the focus . The court won’t be wanting to hear anything else and indeed if it becomes not focussed on this by you, the court may see him more positively than you.
So why isn’t his request reasonable? Why isn’t this in your child’s best interests?
