How and where Can I apply for child maintenance if her father lives abroad (Poland) He doesnt pay at all, he doesnt want to agree for any payment so I would be appreciate if somebody could me help to get a suitable information. It is not existing order so I need apply from beginning.
My ex lives in Spain and I also don''t have an order.
I telephoned the REMO ( Reciprocal Enforcement of maintenance Orders ) dept in my area, and they sent me the forms. You do not need a UK Court Order for Maintenance in place. You simply complete the forms, send them back to the REMO Unit with copies of the child/childrens Birth Certificates.
The paperwork is then sent to the Official Solicitors Office in London, to be translated, and is then sent to the Central Authority in whichever Country.
I have been told that it may not be a quick process, but so far, the paperwork/progress has been rather speedy.
If you Google Search REMO, you will find a helpline number for the area where you live.
Thanx again. I ve just have rang REMO in London 0845 3455303 (I cant find a local REMO helpline) and they said I need go to Exeter Court to Family Section (I live in Honiton Devon)What I should do? Every time it is exactly the same. Do you have this no phone what have you rang maybe they will know something more. I have tried sort this out for a few months... result, nobody knows nothing. So I was so happy when I have found your messages... Regards Bea
I have just called my local office who are dealing with my claim, and asked for the details of your local office. They are going to call me back, and I will let you know as soon as I have it. They said they will call back within the hour.
