I have recently split up with my partner of nearly 10 years. We have 2 kids, ages 6 and 4, together,
I am being asked and I'm 100% willing to pay some kind of maintenance and I have been on the official .gov website to get an amount.
The query I have is that I currently pay for my ex's car, that she uses for herself and the kids, along with the tax each month for this car and her mobile bill.
This all amounts to approx. £180 pm. The amount of child maintenance is approx. £200 pm
Both the car and phone are in my name but I'm not 100% sure where I stand officially regarding offsetting these against the maintenance??
Should I cover my back and get a letter signed by my ex with these costs on and explaining the situation??
