Hi I will try to keep brief, I live with my partner and have 4 kids who live with me, my partner has 2 kids who live with his ex (partners ex lives with someone both work in good job, live in the family home), he has regular contact and pays £360.00 per month, my kids father disappeared of the planet many years ago so I get no maintance payments.....I cant help feeling things are a bit unfair.......dont get me wrong I agree with my partner paying maintance....what I feel is unfair is that my partners ex receives Tax Credit & the extra £360 per month which is not included within her assessment for Tax Credit.....But I recieve no maintance just the assessed Tax Credit which does not make any allowance within the assessment for my partner paying out the £360 a month maintance.....it just seems we lose both ways, I recieve no maintance and recieve no allowance for paying out for maintance, whilst partners ex doesnt have any maintance payments to make but recieves the extra money on top of her Tax Credit from my partner ....was wondering if anyone knew anyway I could have the fact I recieve no maintance or we pay out for maintance to be taken more into account when assessed for TAX credit....???
