    I assume the following. The payment obligation was made by the Irish authorities. The children live in Ireland.

    If he has fallen on hard times, his only recourse is to apply to the Irish authorities for the amount payable to be reduced.

    The obligation is enforceable in the UK.

      I think the original agreement was between themselves , (the children all reside in Ireland) but now the most recent letter is through HM courts and tribunals

        Unfortunately, no one can give advice in a vacuum. Post up a redacted copy of the letter from HMCTS, as a start.
