I did a search before posting this, so apologies if it has been covered before.
When I got divorced the court stated, as part of our full and final settlement, that I should pay all of the costs of my twins until they were 18. I have happily done this, no problem, and they live with me 365 days a year as their mother has moved away. They are very soon to be 18 and I can’t establish what I should be requesting from my ex to support 50% of the ongoing costs until they move out – AND – how I get her to pay.
All I have found is the govt site that says she should be paying £84 per week. But this isn’t anywhere near the true cost of mainaining 2 bedrooms, utilities, travel, insurance, food and household costs, phones, etc, etc, etc. So, have a missed something??? She has a good job and walked with over £500K in cash, so it is not as if she can’t afford it, but is refusing to pay anything.
