New to the forum but looking for advice. Have a child maintenance agreement through the child maintenance service but my ex was/is self employed and claimed benefits as of 1st April.
I know he has definitely received the self employed income support scheme grants so I was under the impression that I would be entitled to the same child maintenance payments.
However, I’m getting tired of contacting the cms (since 13th May) and getting different answers, mainly, yes you are entitled but we have to do calculations and then an outright no you’re not entitled to a penny today.
Does anyone know the correct answer please? We as a family are barely getting through each month now because of it.
