I have a question for you all. My ex has a non-molestation order on me which lasts a year. I will be fighting this in the coming month period, however I have a question relating to Child Maintenance.
As I can not be sure my ex wont use the money for her gaming activities (she regularly racks up hundreds a month to a game on her phone) would I be allowed to put the money into an account for my children at the prescribed rate that I currently pay?
This way the children can benefit from the maintenance payments, whilst I am sure that my ex cannot use the money for activities which do not benefit the children.
Unfortunately you have to pay child maintenance regardless how she spends the money . I wouldn't bother contesting non-molestation order as you wont get anywhere unfortunately. best to let a year pass which isn't that long . only time you can contest one is before they intend of issuing one in the 1st place i am afraid. Believe it or not sometimes been served a non molestation benefits dads in some circumstances as you resist any temptation to contact your ex
