Hi i don't know if this has been covered before, i have sole custody of my two daughters with my ex refusing to pay maintenance through cms and has zero contact with them. the exs mother died and left both girls money in trust. can i claim against estate to cover the cost of the girls upbringing as maintenance?

Hi,

If ex received the money directly as inheritance, then it would be clear cut and you could likely claim.  Not sure about this scenario. You can contact CMS and see if it's possible to claim. I recommend you seek legal advice from someone who specializes in this area.
