I’m having a bother with the CMS not taking any notice of me at the moment.
my ex has never met his daughter who is now 6 but has paid what he should so far.
The issue is how much he pays into a personal pension, last year it was 24% of his income this year its 35%! It’s very obviously to reduce the amount of maintenance he pays.
Anyone have any experience or ideas on this? Any help would be greatfully recieved.
Hi, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but a pension IS the only deduction which will affect CMS payments.. The CMS do not take into account paye/ni but they do deduct pensions contributions before they calculate the sum due. I am expecting my ex to have increased his in the last financial year so that my payments will go down when they are next reviewed as he was apparently ‘shocked & upset’ when I contacted the CMS …!
Sorry! Have to say no I didn’t know there was a max but have just googled and you can lodge a variation to be considered if you think it’s excessive. Have you tried calling them? Other than the wait to speak to someone I have generally found them quite helpful?
