CMS tribunal

New Member Registered

My income went down in 2019 & I eventually got taken to the tribunal despite CMS agreeing to all mandatory calculations etc. Due to unreal delays, they are only hearing the actual case next week - nearly 4 years later. In the following ive received new calculations  - all for more each year as things have improved. The tribunal will probably side against me & say i was diverting (they do this on a technicality) .. but will their decision affect all the new payments I’ve made each year after? My ex didn’t challenge them. Would she have needed to? How will a decison work? Any ideas -I’m worried sick

I recommend you join this support group for paying parents, theres many people there that have attended tribunals:

Do you have to pay to go to tribunal? If you represent yourself?
