I have been divorced now for 8 years and have had a Consent Order in place that I have stuck to (I believed) for the whole time.
4 years ago, my son left school and started an apprenticeship, so I gave my ex notice that I was going to stop payments (as per CSA guidelines) and heard nothing back, so the payments stopped.
My daughter is 18 this month, and I sent a reminder that this would mean my payments would stop at the end of the school year.
I received a photo of the original Consent Order back, which does state that I would pay maintenance until they were both 18 or left full-time education, whichever was later. According to this I should have paid an additional 2 years of maintenance for my son.
I'm now very worried she is going to come after me for 2 years of payments !!!! Any advice on this, it doesn't seem right to back date payments so far.
