Suing for maintenance
'Unfortunately I've had to deal with an ex-partner not paying maintenance.'
I believe that it is equally his responsibility to pay, as it is mine.
Posting on the site about maintenance you get varied theories on what to do and it does get out of hand with some poor advice like:
1. Struggle on your own;
2. You shouldn't have had children if you can't afford to raise them on your own;
3. Women are using it as a "get rich" scheme.
So I avoid any posts which says "Maintenance", as it generally is a personal topic.
