    Hi Everyone. I am looking for some advice on my next steps. I have an open case with the CMS, however, my ex husband informed them he was unemployed in August and has since had a ‘nil’ award. I have recently discovered he actually set up his own business and is working full time for himself. I don’t know what to do for the best. Do I try and appeal to him in the hope he offers something, or do I contact CMS and use that route? Any advice would be great.

    For security in getting what you’re owed you need to keep the case open.

    So any official details you have – like a print out from companies house I would pass on. However they may not do anything until the annual accounts are submitted.
