I have been talking with a friend that is in a difficult situation.
He has a Consent Order that included child payments of X amount, each month.
Now the ex wants him to pay for half her dish washer that broke down and is claiming that he has to do it by law. In the past she has asked and got half payments for beds, new clothes, school uniforms etc.
No, there is no such clause, just about the X amount of money he has to pay monthly, which is about 1000pounds.
He has, in the past paid for half school uniforms, shoes, play costumes, beds etc, but now she claims that she is entitled to all these by law, plus half house repairs, and as I said half the dish-washer expenses.
My friend thinks that he had already paid for half his share concerning this, yesterday already.
I think given the level of cm he pays then he isnt obliged to pay towards anything.
The only thing i get peed off about that my ex doesnt pay towards is school uniforms and school trips/activities etc but my cm is £30 a week. If i received what his ex received i wouldnt ask for anything else.
