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.

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.
