just became a single mum 4 months ago after a 17 year realationship. still trying to sort through things with the ex as far as the kids go. its bloody tough going as things are now starting to turn nasty on his side. we have 2 children a boy at 16 who is still at school and a little girl aged 11. my daughter has severe develepmental delays and needs full time care. as i'm her full time carer, i havent worked since she was born. any way the ex and i were talking last week about maintenence etc and he offered me £250 a month for both of his children. now considering the fact that he is a stock broker i found this bloody laughable, especially as his daughter needs medical equipment etc. also he has now decided that i have 4 days to pack up all my stuff and put it in to storage. (me and the kids relocating to glasgow on monday). when we first separated he told me that i could leave every thing in this house untill i could get the money for removers and new house.

any way just needed to have a rant there as he is being blooming unreasonable xx

You could always ask CSA to be involved in collecting maintenance from your ex, that way it can be calculated on what he actually earns rather than what he thinks/feels obliged to give you.

Hope your move went OK and that you've managed to resolve the storage/moving of your stuff to your new home.
