Might also be worth telling tax credit office that your salary has increased so much or you may get nothing next year.
Hi. I have received my tax credit notification which is to be paid at £230 per week (child tax credit - 3 children - and working tax credit). This was far higher than I expected, based on my income last year of £10,000. I am concerned that this will effect my legal aid (I currently pay a contribution of £25 per month). I am in full time employment now (part time last year), earning between £275-£295 per week. I am on a temp contract, renewable monthly. I am concerned that my tax credits will mean I am no longer entitled to legal aid and would be unable to fund my legal costs myself as I pay the bills and all costs for the children. My ex pays the mortgage and we still live both live in the matrimonial home pending the outcome of proceedings (first hearing in November).
