    Ex has a second job.. 4th Nov 17 at 7:59 PM
    Hi everyone,
    I was hoping someone could give me some advice. My ex and I have a private agreement for child maintenance payments based on his salary, however a friend had been showing me post my ex has been putting on Facebook (which are hidden from me and my family) promoting wine. He has basically joined one of these pyramid selling schemes where he makes commissions pressure selling to friends and family *eye roll*. So my question is: should these earnings be taken into account for child support!
    Thanks in advance :*

    If you have a privte arrangement that should mean you have agreed to a specific amount that you are satisfied with .

    If you arent now, the only way is to do it throuugh the csa,

    CSA no longer exists - It's new incarnation is CMS - Child Maintenance Service. Good luck proving that your ex is making money from this pyramid scheme...only those near the top of the pyramid are making any reasonable money.

    I was ‘satisfied’ with the amount based on his first job, but he is potentially earning more that he is hiding from me which should be used to support his child

    He won't be making any money on MLM schemes. As a PP said, only the people at the top of the pyramid make money on those.

    In which case presumably the OP would be happy to accept a reduction in maintenance payments to cover the reduction in earnings
