My ex-husband reduced the maintenance payment for my daughter by £250 last month. I have asked him why but he refuses to reply. The likely explanation is that he has withheld the money in lieu of her GCSE exam fees. She goes to an independent school and he has agreed to pay the school fees. However, he decided he wouldn't pay the exam fees - I am on a low income as a full time student - and couldn't pay. So he has paid then reduced her maintenance to recoup the money. Effectively he has made his daughter pay her own fees ! I have reluctantly gone to the CSA to try to prevent this happening again. Unfortunately my ex is self employed and takes dividends from his company as opposed to wages. Anyone offer any advice on the best way to deal with this?
