Hmm, I think either you''ve been given bad advice, or you have misunderstood.
My solicitor has advised me that as a single mum on benefits i have no option but to go for a Clean Break, as ex already doesn''t pay Child Support, so there is no way he Will agree to paying for me to remain in the property.
Then you would be better off going to the CSA. They will make him pay the CSA figure. Even if this means he stops paying the mortgage, you would be getting cash money instead, so you would be £150 a month better off - right?
I have asked him to contribute an extra 150 on top of what he pays to equal the CSA Figure, but this he objects to.
Oh if I had a pound every time I''d heard that, then I would be a very rich man. Really, he would remove his entire income source and live on bread and water just to avoid his responsibilities? He is aware that if he quits a perfectly good job for no reason, he will not get any benefits, so he will have NOTHING to live on? That is not only cutting off his nose to spite his face, it is cutting off his entire head. A lot of men use this threat just to get their way but when push comes to shove they never go through with it. In fact I have never heard of a single case where the man has actually quit his job in order to avoid child maintenance. This is a completely empty threat.
He has also advised that should i go down the CSA route he Will put himself out of work
