Hi I have been separated from my partner since August. I still get to see my kids at least 3 times a week which I'm happy with. I do not understand why I have to pay my ex money each month if she only has them one more day than me, which technically she doesn't as her mum has them one night. I am back living at home while she is in a council flat that I was in with her. With the money I give her she takes home more than I do yet I'm the one who has to pay and I can't afford to move out because of it. I don't see why I have to pay her when we both have the kids the same amount of time and I pay for things like food,clothes and days out while they are with me. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
