CMS and evidence based payment.

New Member Registered

My ex forced me on to CMS after a few months of Financally abusing me and forcing me into an IVA. 

let me start by saying i love my kids and have no issue wanting to pay towards my kids. 

My ex wife placed me on CMS in Feb i have a refund from an energy provider and i placed this in to our joint account with the full intention of using it to pay my CMS, the night the money was transferred in my ex wife took the entire payment which was £458 my CMS is £354. I declared to CMS as this being a voluntary payment and i spoke to the CMS on the phone about this issue. 


I have been in regular contact with CMS about this topic and they have told me this was under investigation as i have sent them the evidence showing the payment came from and energy provider account soley in my name and my ex wife removing it from the joint account. 

They have yet to settle this issue and it has been over 2 months. My ex wife refuse to accept this even with the evidence and CMS have begun threating to change me to the collect and pay service. 


I'm not sure what more i can do as i have supplied the evidence supporting this?

Hi, I suggest you argue against collect and pay as they add on 20% charge. Once CMS involved, you should not be doing voluntary/private payments.
