Child Maintenance Service
Sorry if this isn't the appropriate forum but any advice would be welcome. I am a carer for my son and mother. Until my son reached 20, I got child maintenance from my ex husband through the CMS. He has asked for several mandatory reconsideration's, as he did not agree with their calculations. They did not go in his favour and now he's appealed to the tribunals service. I have received papers from the Tribunal service which say I am the other party. I've spoken to them to say I don't understand what I am supposed to do, as his differences are between him and the CMS. They said I have to prepare a counter case. I don't have any access to his finances and CMS won't tell me anything. If the CMS have made a mistake and the tribunal find in my ex's favour does that mean I will have to pay it all back! Sorry but I am panicking a bit.
