The shared care agreement was agreed in court and there is a corresponding Consent Order. She still has a CSA claim, because she is in receipt of child benefit, not because she spends any more on the kids than I do. A ludicrous system.
Back to the point though, does anyone feel I have a legitimate case against my solicitors as I think all this CSA stuff should have been an integral part of the financial settlement process and was totally overlooked.
You certainly should have been warned about it as whatever is agreed or ordered in court regarding child support can be superseded by a CSA claim after a year. I would expect solicitors to know that. Whether that gives you a good case to claim I don''t know. However, if the agreement has not been ratified by the court you are still able to re-open negotiations in the light of this.
I can no longer afford any more legal costs. I have also lost faith in the solicitor and had a bad experience with another firm during the family proceedings too. If I re-negotiate the deal I will be doing it myself. I need to be responsible for my own future and the future of my children and not leave it to incompetents who won''t be the ones suffering from their mistakes.
