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.
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 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.
