I was in an abusive relationship, I got out and when he only got community service for what he did to me even when I was pregnant. I decided I’d claim child maintenance payments through CMS because i felt that the very least he could do is help support his child. (He has no contact)
three months of payments have passed and now he has reported that he has left his job and is trying to claim UC. I don’t know what has happened, but it feels like he is avoiding paying CM.
Please tell me they look into why he is claiming UC and whether it is actually a legit claim.
I will say I’m not surprised, I sort of knew this would happen at some point just didn’t realise it would be so soon while my child is still a baby.
