I have recently submitted an application for Child Maintenance payments and the CMS are assessing the amount I can arrange to receive from my ex-partner.
My question now is how may that effect other financial arrangements i have in place and are there any keys authorities i need to inform/could receive further discounts/arrangements from moving forward? the areas i’m wondering about at the moment are my mortgage – do i need to tell my mortgage provider? my little girl is 2.5yrs, am i now eligible for free hours before she turns 3yrs? what else may be effected by CM payments.
