How to calculate Child Maintenance
By now you should probably have a good idea of what Child Maintenance is (if not, here’s a quick reminder), but you might not know how much you or your ex partner should pay.
The UK government has a free online Child Maintenance calculator which you can use to get an estimate of the statutory amount the government will give you.
Before you get started, you will need to have information to hand about:
- your current income
- if you have children with more than one person, you will need to make separate calculations for each parent you want to have a child maintenance agreement with.
