How do I get a Spanish child maintenance order adjusted as visiting order has changed?

5th Jun 2019

My Ex wife lives now in England, we lived in Spain, and has taken the spanish visiting order to court and got it changed via english courts without me being able to defend myself. I now have to pay all trips to see my son. She wants the spanish maintanence order to stay the same as it is more than the CSA say I should pay under normal circumstances. I can not afford to pay for everything. I am paying according to the CSA, but she is saying that I cannot see my son unless I pay the Spanish agreement. How do I get the order changed in England so that she will stop blackmailing me and let me see my son?

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    It is a bit difficult to advise without having sight of any agreements or court order with respect to contact arrangements. Presumably an order must have been made for the child to relocate to England. You should also have had notice of the hearing to attend court. Contact arrangements must not be blurred with child maintenance, and if your ex-wife is "blackmailing" you, you may have to take matters back to court to vary the order.

    We invite you to get in touch with OTS Solicitors on 0203 9599 123 to see how we can assist further.
