Need some advice on Mesher agreement that was granted in 2001.
Basically I am a single Dad whose Wife left the family home and I with the children aged 12, 10 and 6. That was fine but the court at the time issued a Mesher agreement that when the youngest was 18, house to be sold and 40% paid to my Ex Wife. He made no order for Maintenance against my Ex ! but I had to transfer House and Mortgage into my name.
Now I have about 9 months remaining and can I do something to recover any monies from my Ex regarding lack of Maintenance when I have to sell and give her 40% of the selling price ?
Thankyou in advance
Sorry for the confusion I meant that the children stayed with me but my Ex does not pay any maintenance for the children and has not done since leaving 12 years ago. This is why I think it unfair that I have brought up my children emotionally and financialy but she still has 40% share in the property. The house has been maintained by myself.
I''m very sorry but child maintenance cannot be back dated before an application was made. The courts no longer normally have jurisdiction for child maintenance and all you can do is apply to the CSA so that child support is paid until your children leave non advanced education or reach the age of 19 (rising to 20 shortly.)

No, it doesn''t work like that. It''s based on income and/or capital. If she has over £60k after selling sitting in a bank account somewhere then it will be possible to make a claim on that money. You''ll have to let the CSA know she''s got capital over that value and ask for a reassessment.
