    On what basis does he pay? If it is via CMS or Court Order then he is wrong. If it is a private agreement between them then it's up to him.

    The CMS will ofcourse not adjust the payments simply for on week. But logically he's correct, he bore all the costs for that week.

    Having said that the CMS are on reduced staff and are not following up on non-payment issues at present. But if he usually pays he would be deemed compliant anyway. 
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
