Hi, my ex hasn’t had our children since lockdown. He would normally have them either one or two nights a week, more in the half terms. He hasnt had them due to him being a keyworker and the health risk to one of the children. We have a family based arrangement for child maintenance….obviously having the children at home 24/7 has had a major impact on finances. Not once has he offered to increase the payments and if I was to ask he would laugh at me! Any advice please?
Doubt there is anything you can do because even the Cms is doing nothing as Covid19 is a ‘temporary situation’ unless you change a court order. Legal people love the term ‘temporary’ because there is no timeframe associated so a more accurate phrase would be ‘indefinitely’.
