I divorced 7 years ago and agreed to a Consent Order which included maintenance.
6 years ago I sought a downward variation on grounds that ex would now be able to work as children older and maintenance was reduced.
My ex is now seeking upward a variation and has listed 10 issues.
Amongst these she is now seeking:-
Index linking, backdated to outset
Reinstatement of original maintenance
Financial commitment for childrens university in 4-6 years time
Allegations of hidden income
The judge did not comment at first appointment and I have now written to court asking for courts direction on which issues can be considered, but would appreciate advice on what issues are normally within scope of variation FDR/ final hearing
