Just so frustrated by ex! Refused to increase maintenance payments to be in line with csa online calculator, so had to use apply to csa. Ex dragged his feet in providing info, then makes sporadic payments - which are apparently enough to show willing and prevent enforcement - had 8 months without a penny whilst he dithered then 2 very small payments. Obviously this has had an impact when expecting the cash and have bills and childcare to pay. Furthermore he's turning down spending as much time with child as we moved house last year and the increase from 15min to a 30min drive is too much. I just don't understand how he can be so feckless - I'm managing not to let on to child but feel so sad for her He's swannning off on yet another holiday after building up 2k+ in arrears - he's never taken child away and now this summer I can't afford to either. I'm so careful with my money, it seems unfair that my child misses out whilst he runs up arrears. I'm not some money grabber, I'm only after the minimum amount (which he should WANT to pay anyway), where's the man's sense of honour?! Thanks for chance to vent!!!
