So I’m dad to DD and have had sole custody for some time now. I’ve never really thought about CMS but recently after speaking to other parents and reading on here and struggling to make ends meet some months thought it’s aboit time she paid her way. She still has contact however this has to be supervised due to various concerns and events over the years.
Rang CMS today and made the application to get the ball rolling. I really am not expecting a deal, and half expecting her to ignore any correspondence or fail to declare everything however just wondered from other people’s experience what the timescales are. How long will it be before the NRP receives a letter, Is there deadline for her to reply by?
Any help or advice from other people’s experience would be gladly accepted and greatly appreciated
So I am a dad of 3. Self employed. Just venturing to a new home. Kids will live with their mum but hoping for lots of time with me.
ive set up a direct debit but concerned that I won’t be able to afford. Could someone tell me as she is claiming everything she can should the authorities know about my transfer to her and what if I struggle to keep up with the payment.
