A Separation Agreement was signed in September 2002 and we''re now divorced. Ive been paying child maintenance in excess of the amount stated in the agreement until last month when I lost my job. How can I change the terms of the agreement on maintenance to reflect my change in income?
Now you''re asking! It used to be that you could apply for a variation by minute using the procedure in the Ordinary Cause Rule 129 in most circumstances. The rules have recently changed but officials at the court can give you a steer towards forms and procedure. Having said that court rules and procedures are still quite complicated and if you aren''t sure you may be better off using a solicitor.
