Hi There,
I have a child Maintance agreement with my ex to pay for my boys until they finish their secondary education. My ex has stopped paying child maintenance without giving me notification whilst my son is in the middle of his a levrls. I have an email from school saying he is still in full time education at school, which I have shared with my ex but he is still refusing to pay. I have threatened with court as he has broken a legal court agreement but he has said to go ahead as it will cost me more than the chills maintenance is worth.
When officially is the last day of education following A levels and is there a way to resolve this?

It always seems to suggest August 31st after they finish education would be the date they officially leave the roll of the school/college. So it possibly depends how your agreement is worded as you are possibly down to the last 2 payments i.e. Jul/Aug now so any attempt via CSA/Court would be having to weigh up vs what you may receive for those 2 payments

Thanks for your feedback so for the slow response!
The wording in our agreement is “reaches 18 or completes secondary education whichever is later”.
Can you confirm that secondary education for those completing A-levels is 31st August. My ex has said that if I can prove it, he will pay. So I wondered where I find this as the web only takes about 16 yr olds. Thanks
