x partner is self employed filed dividends for August calculation of nearly 70k but refuses to pay any maintenance through collect and pay ,got a liability order, bayliffs just visited for the arrears of nearly 9k, even though he is still refusing to pay his weekly maintenance and hasn’t paid for nearly a year and there is now a further debt of nearly 5k they accepted a payment of 400 pcm towards the debt ( what a joke) i still won’t see any monies till February 2019 as bayliffs take their fee of £800, was told today by CMS that we now can ask for a further liability order but will take another 6 months and if accepted cannot collect any further monies towards the second debt until the 24 months are up with the first liability order.
i have tried contacting my MP but they are reluctant to help – how do I support my two children on fresh air I work full time am a single mum and really worried about how to carry on without any monies coming in
