I am currently working 30+ hrs a week and doing my MBA as an online part time course. I get student grant and loan which comes to £16k over the two years, my course is only £5000 so I’m using re rest to fix my roof because quite honestly I’m 46 and the chances of me paying it back in full are pretty slim. I’m not on universal credits though I get a bit of tax credits and I’m in wales and they like to give us extra cash.
Do what my ex does to avoid paying me more and and plough a huge chunk into your pension. The maintenance amount is calculated after pension has been deducted, that way although you will have to pay more it won’t be quite so much.
If you think he is living beyond his means report him to the HMRC for not declaring his earnings.
The CMS are useless they have just decided to cancel all of my arrears because they don’t think he’ll ever pay it, which is completely down to them for choosing to believe his quite obvious lies. Nobody earing £100 can afford to spend the amount he does on bikes and holidays but they refuse to take any further action. 12 years of trying to make him pay up and I’m closing my case because it’s obviously pointless.
