Anonymous 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.
