Knightsbridge have allowed ex to claim expenditure of £200 A MONTH for an extra car for his wife! she has not long passed her test, doesn’t work and is a short walk from school. Surely this is not included in CFT and should be money for creditors. The extra £200 a month would be nearly enough to repay his debts without the need for insolvency. I thought you were only allowed one car if you were lucky?

Depends on the full set of circumstances ( and what he has told his IP). For instance ... if a couple lived in a rural location with no reliable bus service, both work in different directions, it would be reasonable for them to both need a car. In the scenario you describe, maybe not so reasonable.

Just a query - how do you know this if it is for your ex?

Personally speaking, unless your finances are intertwined, they should not be in contact with you about your ex's IVA.

seems like lots of things they shouldn’t be doing, have you experience of them?

Not them but unless you have any joint finances you should not know anybody elses finances.

What about if we have a son who we are joint liable but he owes £30000 in unpaid maintenance? Does our son have a right to know?
