My stbx & I have agreed that I'd be paying a specified amount per month for the upkeep of our son. The amount exceeds the CMS calculations however, it's for child maintenance and not spousal. STBX & myself should have no financial and ideally the order should specify a clean break.
The draft order includes a Life Assurance policy to compensate stbx, a will that hands over estate to stbx incase of my untimely death and an undertaking to divulge financial info to stbx.
I can't imagine the above are standard clauses. Can anybody advise? Can I request these be deleted?
I think life insurance to protect child support is pretty standard.
The point of a clean break is that the ex has no further claim. I would not be too keen on any clause that tied you into making a will in a particular way. What if you meet a new partner, have more children??
It is reasonable to have to share say P60s to ensure CM is properly calculated. Anything more would seem unduly intrusive.
A consent order needs both parties to agree. If you aren't happy with the clauses, don't agree to them being included.
