    I have a Financial Remedy Order in place whereby I have to pay spousal maintenance for a set period; in excess of 10 years. I’m separately paying child maintenance to provide for my children.

    Ex-wife has moved on, started a new family. I’m interested in revisiting a Financial Remedy Order as I don’t see it as fair that in effect I’m supporting her new family and in essence stepping in to the ‘new partner’s shoes’ and providing financial support that he should be providing.

    Does anyone have any experience (successful or not) of revisiting maintenance under a previous Financial Remedy Order. For the avoidance of doubt, I have no problem paying to support my children – which I do via child maintenance payments –  but I do have an issue with providing spousal maintenance that is supporting new partner and new off spring.

    Any advice please? Thanks
