Child benefit/ child tax credit
#1
Hi everyone, 

Myself and ex separated over two years ago, last September we finalised everything in court that we would have 50:50 of our two children so on a fortnight basis we both get 7 nights each. 

CMS closed our case down because it's shared residence and they stated that they have closed the case, this was a few months ago. 

A few people have suggested i should look into child benefit/child tax credits... My ex currently gets all of this money but I didn't know if there was a way I'm entitled to anything?

Thanks in advance!!

Only one parent gets the Child Benefit, what means they get Tax Credit and the child's occupancy only courts at their house.

You could do what is called a Rival Claim for Child Benefit, but you would need to show you exceed 50% of the nights.
Posts made by me are my opinion and any factual information should be checked out. If you do not have a Solicitor, often your local CAB can get you some initial advice.
