Reply To: Credit card payment as maintenance?


I can understand where Chris is coming from, but I don’t know if there is the legal basis for doing so.
It is definately income, as Andy says, but does it fall to be disregarded? :15:

Since Nov last year all charitable and / or voluntary payments are disregarded. It could be argued that if there is no legal basis for making these payments then they must be voluntary. 8) (Reg 46?)

So I think perhaps a few more questions (perhaps, why has there been no legal process to get maintenance paid?) may be pertinant here. 😉

Somtimes, it might walk like a duck , and quack like a duck BUT…….. 8)
