Any reliable information about Registering child maintenance Order in the Magistrates Court? Specifically, on page 3 of leaflet EX327 "I`ve got a maintenance order but its not being paid" it mentions (paragraph one) sending the application along with "supporting evidence" but fails to inform what evidence is required.
I can`t seem to find out about this anywhere! Do I need to send documentation of the payments/non-payments? Bank statements? Statement from the non-payer detailing intention to non-pay? (I do have the latter......)
Thanks in advance, hope someone chips in here.
Yes, it was a Consent Order. I`ve filled in the D151 in duplicate, copied and enclosed the Court Order, written out the cheque for the Court fees but this mention of "additional evidence" threw me......
Before going to court parents need to agree a figure, usually with the help of a third party and then the Court Judge decides if the amount looks fair and reasonable. Once an agreement has been converted into a Consent Order then the parent is legally liable to pay the amount the court has endorsed. Before sending your application to the courts it''s important that you take legal advice from a solicitor. They will tell you what’s needed to prepare for court. If your solicitor is unable to help, Community Legal Advice may be able to give you some more information or advice. Their helpline number is 0845 345 4345.
Yes, that`s helpful. I`ve already sent the forms off but think I have included enough setting out the arrears, the calculations, etc.
Statement of truth? In the EX327 it says that you need a statement of truth for attachment of earnings/warrant of execution/charging order, not for registering maintenance order?
