i disagree about the csa as i was in the same boat and because ex lived in house they only awarded me £50 per month for 2 children but once he left it went up to £230 the problem is that ex gave me nothing but also lived there so could not claim anything either
You are back in court next month in effect.
The court will not award you the £4800/£7200 he has not paid in April May and June back dated.
You can try asking for it but it will become irrelevant as this is a final hearing everything will be divided up anyway.
In all honesty he knows you''re going for the majority of all the marital assets so that''s why he is thinking that he might as well make you spend your savings and hold these two or three months back of the £2400.
I can see his logic if the court appointment had of been kept in April then he wouldn''t have had to of made these payments.
Remember he will be annoyed that he is having to pay out solicitors fees for a final hearing when he has already offered you £200k out of the £240k house equity.
His only liability in csa payments will be 25% of his take home which will be £1395 a month on £67000 per annum take home. So you won''t be better going to the csa and they won''t get this sorted prior to the July final hearing.
I think he will be able to argue away the money he withdrew from the business to pay credit card debts easily as joint marital debt.Courts tend to deal in facts with the money that is actually still there rather than money that''s already been spent.Even if he spent the money on wine women and song it will be virtually impossible to prove just hearsay it will still be a reasonable argument that as the financial provider for the family he used a pot of money to reduce the marital debt.
I think you will just have to hang tough until July personally.
As the most accurate Divorce Calculator and predictor of outcomes on here you might well get the £240k house equity and he will keep the £80k endowment.Because that will be my tried and tested formula of 75/25 in the resident parents favour.
All the best
