Our expert says:
If the magistrate at the court is sensible, and the situation is as you suggest, then her claim should be thrown out of the court with contempt. The court's job is the assess the needs of the child ( not the wants of the mother ) and then, in relation to the relative earnings of each parent, decide how much each of them should contribute in maintenance towards the child's needs. Whether or not you are living a "cosy life style" is really none of her business, unless you were assessed to pay only very low maintenance on the grounds of your pleading poverty when in fact you're earning more than you revealed.
Such courts ought to reach relatively speedy decisions, and should discourage prolonged proceedings - they must never tolerate abuse of the system by one parent as a means of harassing the other parent.
Do take all relevant documents about your own income and expenses to court in case you need these.
