my husband is seeking advice on mon as he refuses to pay 400 a wk to me, he has left things as they were until now, hes been gone 6wk, i dont work, what is he obliged to pay. Mortgage and bills all in his name.we have 2 children also
Depending on your situation (sorry dont remember your other threads) he should be paying Child Support and/or Spousal Maintenance.
He could pay either voluntarily, but if he refuses to pay then you should pursue your claim:
- for child support via the CSA
- for interim spousal maintenance (pending a final agreement) through the local county court.
Until you do one of the above nothing is forcing him to pay anything - other than his moral obligation.
With 2 kids you should be getting 20 percent of his net income.
You may well also qualify for a range of benefits such as child tax credit, working tax credit, child benefit, housing bebefit - see the benefits section in the Top Sites section
You cannot apply for interim maintenance unless you have filed for divorce - you might already have done so but it isn't mentioned in this thread. But CSA applies, and a threat about that might do the trick.
