Have the CSA made the assessment? or is this a family arrangement? If the CSA are collecting monies due they would not deduct the two weeks your ex has the children for a holiday, although they do make adjustments for overnight stays providing there are at least 52 per year.
Do you know if you receive more than the CSA would assess? Go on their website they have an online calculator so you can check. If he is paying at the CSA rate (or below) I would ask him to pay the 2 weeks and if he refuses tell him you will now need to make an application to the CSA to cover yourself from this happening in the future.
If the CSA assessment leaves you worse off overall you may need to accept the 2 week non payment.
It''s a bit of an awkward one. I put the child support in place. As to CSa
Guidelines, I''m not too sure. What he earns on the books isn''t what he truly earns.
He works in a family business and .... Let''s put it this way, he doesn''t pay
Enough tax and ni !! I know this as I was part of the business for 20yrs till he left.
So it''s a family agreement I think. No CSa involvement
Ummm... if he is self employed you may be better off just accepting the two week loss (the CSA seem unable to handle non PAYE claims very well) If he has been paying what you have agreed to date it may be best just to let the two weeks go. Its possibly a gamble to do anything else.
I''ve been having a read at the conversation between you maisymoos and some of the information maisymoos has mentioned is correct. However, with you and your children''s dad having an arrangement between yourselves, there are no strict rules or formulas to follow. So you''ll need to speak to him about your payments during the holidays. child maintenance Options has produced a "discussion guide" that may help you, you can find this on:
