TOPIC: Paying parent living in the UAE?

Paying parent living in the UAE? 4 years 3 months ago #61108

Hi Johnny_95,

Explained the situation to the DWP and this is the advice they have come back with:

The CSA case would have to be closed when the dad moves out of the country. From the background information given, the dad would indeed fall outside of the jurisdiction to be assessed under one of the statutory schemes: he will be living abroad; working aboard but not in one of the specific jobs where we could continue to have jurisdiction (e.g. armed forces), and; at that point, also have no earnings declarable to HMRC.

I have included a link to some helpful information that is published on Gov.uk about child maintenance if one parent lives abroad: https://www.gov.uk/child-maintenance-if-one-parent-lives-abroad

This in mind, the dad could set up a family-based arrangement with the child’s other parent and there is also some guidance within the above pages that explains how to set one up and make them legally binding if necessary.

Alternatively the dad could set up a standing order and flags it as ‘child maintenance’ to clarify what it is.

I think a private arrangement/ family- based arrangement/ standing order would be the best way forward with this situation if the child’s other parent agrees, as the CSA case will have to close when the dad moves abroad.

I hope that this of some help to you.

Cheers

Gooner
