I’ve got 2 primary school aged kids. They stay with me all of the working week and stay with their dad most weekends – every 3rd weekend with me.
He married at the start of the year and since then our relationship has spiralled downwards. Now after 3yrs of steady maintenance he has stopped – apparently he can’t afford it any more! He says he will restart when he can afford it again in a few months time. This doesn’t ring true to me as he’s taking the kids to a music festival for a long weekend at end July 🙄.
I work full time during the week – when he refuses to have the kids – apparently he can’t have them then as he’s busy. He’s self employed and has steady work although not as secure as it used to be. He has refused to provide any assistance for covering any of the school holidays practically or financially
Can anyone tell me what my rights are? Or what I should do?
Have you contacted the Child Maintenance Service? Might be worth seeing what they say? My ex messed me around with maintenance so I went to them. We now have a plan for what he pays and when. If he messed around, I can ask them to take it from his salary.
