Will you actually be paying more? Roughly 12% of your gross income. If it’s within one month of the decision phone up and state you wish to have a revision. State the reason being the incorrect number of overnights has been taken into account.
Failing that appeal using form SSCSC2.
With regards the mid month claim, you’re not going to be reimbursed via cms and unlikely via your ex, so you may have to accept that one. Just being grateful if suppose that it wasn’t a claim the day after you paid!
Solomummy it’s quite a lot extra I’d be paying but what I don’t like is the ability to lie unchallenged by the CMS.
She went to the CMS because she tried to tell me I was having less than 3/week and asked for more money even though we have emails, texts and a spreadsheet detailing the arrangements. Naturally I said I am having 3 but seems she can go to the CMS and say what she likes without proof
Justine here, please don’t forget that at Gingerbread we have a single parent helpline. They are really helpful with either giving you updated information, exploring your options or signposting you to the right agencies. They can be contacted on 0808 802 0925. It is a free phone number, but please be aware that they will be busy, so it will take time to get through. They are open today from 10am – 4pm.
If you don’t wish for advice then don’t post! I gave you sound advice about how to proceed.
To avoid confusion please respond with greater clarity. Eg You replied , “It’s quite a lot extra I’d be paying”. Paying 1/7th more wouldn’t be huge if you were paying the correct amount initially. That isn’t an assumption, it’s fact!
