I was under a mutual agreement to have my 2 children every other weekend plus the majority of the school holidays, which has been fine the previous 2 years. Child support was paid using the online calculator with no problems. This past month, CMS contacted me requesting full payment for my children based on no overnight stays! I have no custody order in place because I do not have the money for court, what with the large sum of debt my ex left me with. Can anybody relate and explain how they adjusted the correct CM by proving they have had their children overnight? I have since started keeping reciepts but trying not to affect the kids by not being able to afford to have them as much.
CMS like court orders. But having kids 4 nights a month, they dont reduce your maintenance by much. Its something like £40-50 off per month. I went through court first, then gave order to CMS. If you have about £315 to spare, you could apply for court order and self represent.
