Hi all,

My husband has recently left the armed forces and his last pay check will be in June. He will them be training for a trade and we will only have my income to rely upon. Will I be subject to pay child maintenance for his child from a previous relationship? If so, how will this work? If not, how will it work with him not being in employment for a period? Hopefully he will qualify and find something soon but if not, not sure what happens? 

Any help appreciated, thanks.

    CMS will only use his income, not yours. If he doesn't have any income because he's not working then he won't have to pay. He will have to inform CMS of the change and ask for a re-calculation. Not sure if that can be done in advance or if he needs to wait until his earnings change but he should call them up and explain the situation.

    No the CMS will not take your income into consideration. Your husband will need to call the CMS and tell them he is out of work and they should re-calculate.
