    Hi there I pay child maintenance to my ex for one of my daughters £105 a month. He has agreed to let me take her on holiday for a week next year but have now told me as I am taking her I need to buy everything she needs to go, I don’t agree with this as I pay Child maintenance every month surely he should be buying the things she needs out of that. Don’t get me wrong I will be picking things up for her but to say if I want to take her on holiday I have to pay for her clothes and everything as well am already paying for her holiday. Advise please. Thanakyou in advance.

    In my opinion I feel child maintenance should be used for feeding the child, clothing the child as well as providing basic necessities.

    The child is bound to have shorts, sandles and t shirts for the warm weather. Everything else the child should have such as underwear, trainers, socks and hoddies. If the father is not giving them I think he is just trying to make things awkward..

    If he doesn’t give these though I think you will unfortunately have to purchase items for your holiday. I really don’t get why he can’t give them.

    I think if the items you are asking for are above and beyond the things she already has then you should be buying these, as you are choosing to take her on holiday.

    As in the previous post, if you are only asking for things that she already owns then I can’t see why she can’t be sent with these, and I agree he sounds like he might just be being awkward.

    If you are taking her on holiday then you should provide the things. I mean dont you have underware, toiletries, clothes etc already for her at yours? Its not a school trip where you pack & send the kid – its your holiday & your kid!

    I am also owed near 6000 and would like to know about getting involved with this. CMS are a pure joke and have passed me off for over a year now.

    I am wanting to get involved with this campaigne in taking child maintenance to court since 2013 they have failed me. I am owed thousands. I get a new payment schedule every year but never get the payments. I am sick of doing there work providing CMS with all the information and proof they need but still don’t help.
