Reply To: child maintenance


That’s just as I see it.

If the maintenance is subject to a court order, I would envisage that the order would be “itemised” so that we can identify who gets what. If it is voluntary, the standard of evidence would not be as good and if it is along the lines of “I pay Mrs X £50 maintenance” do we need to go back to ask for a split.

If I were a claimant, I know what I’d say when asked.
