I like a lot of people on here have a controlling bully for an ex (one of the reasons I left him lol). He has how stated (very cockily) that he is going self employed so i will get whatever maintenance he sees fit…when he sees fit. Ive heard of lots of situations where ex partners use going self employed to get away with paying the minimum amount. Does anyone know how I can safe guard myself from this happening. I’ve always been very fair with him and accepted the maintenance figure he stated when I know for a fact that if I’d have gone to the csa I would have got more. He’s very savvy and will do anything to get one over on me. Very bitter 6 years later!
