    Hello,

    Since the pandemic started my ex has claimed universal credit as he is self employed and had to stop working.

    Due to this all child maintenance payments stopped. Whilst I am understanding of the situation he is in I am also financially strained and struggling to pay for everything. I am furloughed from my job but now I have to go back to work and have to pay for childcare, which i don’t know how I will afford on top of everything else.

    I can’t get through to the CMS for advice, on when he has to start paying again. Does he have to start paying back the money at all or do they write it off?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks
