Hi, I'm on a last ditch attempt to try and get maintenance from my ex before I give up
I've been going round and round in circles for the last 10 years trying to get maintenance from my ex through csa/cms and not getting very far
Managed 4 months of payments through a deductions of earnings order last year but that's about it!
For 6 months now the cms can't trace him, the address they have the mail is being returned to them although I can bet its his base address where his girlfriend lives.
Late last year (when he was trying to get me to accept £10 a week for 3 kids instead of the £28 a week through deductions of earnings) he told me he had put in for a offshore job in Norway and when I finally got hold of him couple of months ago he told me he was working away and wouldn't be paying.
So now no idea what to do!
I have heard if I tell the cms he's working offshore they will close my case and won't help at all but I can't actually be certain he is working offshore as he's not known for telling the truth. Also if he is working offshore I have no idea on how to find out where he is and how to go about trying to get him to pay!
The only way I had of contacting him was facebook messenger but he's blocked that now haven't a clue what to do.
Any advice would be gratefully received but I'm thinking it may be time to give up and admit defeat!
