R.e.m.o reciprocal maintence experiences
26 August 2020 at 7:57 pm #43263
hi, does anybody have any experience with REMO they could share please
The nrp has moved to Spain as of this year. Cms have been absolutely useless in doing anything in the year he was still in the UK. Child maintence owed nearly £4000 but I dont even think that is accurate sum.
Thank you in advance x2 December 2020 at 3:29 pm #46522
If you haven’t done so already you’ll need a court order for maintenance (because CMS will close their case if the paying parent is overseas, except if he is working for a UK company or armed services). You should not need an address for service, speak to the court REMO office. The REMO office should help you get a court order.
Any CMS arrears is another kettle of fish.2 December 2020 at 3:32 pm #46523

Hi Reus, thank you for your responses.
I desperately need to speak somebody regarding these forms. Remo have sent all relevant forms to me. Trouble is I don’t understand them, there are no contact details of anyone I could speak to regarding these forms and the NRP is making the process incredibly difficult2 December 2020 at 5:58 pm #46537
I’m not sure what the forms are. With mine, I applied to the court for a court order, and the REMO office sent me forms for the arrears owing against the court orders. Those were in the foreign language. You might be able to make an appointment to speak to one of the REMO staff? (In my experience most court staff don’t know the unit exists.) Here’s the London REMO office contact details from the web:

I’m going through the same thing as well. My ex husband left me pregnant and changed his number I’ve not seen him again nor has he ever paid.
ive made a REMO application and CM are also applying for court order as no one knows if he’s in the UK or Europe?
how long did it take for you to sort everything?
I filed REMO in July but CM is still open case.7 December 2020 at 7:07 pm #46735
What a 6 year nightmare! 8 years if you count the 2 years it took for the American Social workers to realize that Scotland was part of the UK.
My court ordered document has been with the Scotland REMO office for 6 years and nothing has been done, as far as I can tell. They won’t communicate with me directly, only their counterparts here in the USA.
My ex owes over $32,000 for the almost 9 years of non-payment.
Because of COVID I am now homeless and unemployed. We’re staying with friends and I’m trying to find another job. My ex, well, he has his home paid off and is just marking time for the next 5 years until he collects his government pension.
This process is broken and these countries need to value single parents a bit more. I think that payment should come from the government and let them get reimbursed by the deadbeat parents. I bet the process would be a lot smoother and quicker then!
