Do either of you claim any benefits such as tax credits or universal credit?

If so this complicates the sfurther as the cb is a gateway benefit, so would result in significantly smaller payouts on those for the person not receiving the cb.

If neither claim, then I would suggest that as you have stated you request it to be paid to you officially  BUT in the nature of shared, will set up a direct debit for half the cb to her on a monthly basis.

If she refuses, you can apply directly for the cb to be transferred and then they will decided who receives it.
