      Today, 11:07:AM
      Hi, I recently took my children on holiday. They do not live with me and I had asked rhe school if I could take them and was told no.. So I knew that there would be a fine. I had read its £60 per parent per child per week. So £240. When I returned from holiday after about two weeks my ex and her partner received a fine. But I did not get one. I assumed that they had thought since my children live there that the fines should go there. I transferred the money to my ex and marked it down as kids holiday fine. She paid and showed me these fines were paid. 6 months later I get a letter through the door from West mercia enforcement centre saying I owe £634. I phoned ro see what it was about and was told. I hadn't paid my holiday fine. I said two fines were paid and I had assumed the wrong name was on the form as I had not received a letter. They told me they sent letters out but it was my old address so I did not know about them. They also told me I missed a court date. I have always been on the electrol role and had changed my address with the school so couldn't understand why I had not received a letter yet I managed to receive a letter at my address now. I explained what had happened and even sent proof of payments and sent all my bank transactions. They then sent another letter to pay £25 a week or else face further fines and even maybe arrested. Two of these letters are not even signed. They seem unprofessional. What can I do. I would like to Go to court to sort this out as in my defense I have paid. I knew my ex wouldn't pay although she claims "our fines were paid" Yes because I paid the money. So it looks like I haven't paid a fine. But why pay £634. Seems extreme. Any advice on this is much appreciated. Chris hamilton.
