My ex-husband and I recently divorced....we have a shared care arrangement for our 3 children sharing them 4 days on/4 days off.
The CSA take £50 per week off him and transfer it to me and as I am still deemed the main carer I receive child benefit of £188 per month.
Whilst my ex has a good job earning £40k plus per annum together with a company car and all the trimmings I am a part-time self employed cleaner earning around £9500. I also receive tax credits.
After our divorce my ex stayed in the family home, buying me out.
The problem I am faced with is that he now refuses to buy or contribute to any childrens clothes, shoes and trainers (including school uniforms) and expects me to supply EVERYTHING.
As the children are with him half the time and the fact he earns 3 times more than myself surely this can't be fair.
Any advice would be great...thanks : )
