Child maintenance - directors

My ex is finally paying child maintenance but the claim has been based on minimum wage. He appears to have conveniently forgotten to mention his directors dividends and rental income. I have appealed this but was wondering how long it will take and if there is likely to be a fair outcome (I gather CMS often never actually bother responding in these circumstances!).
