It should be 50/50 so why is he only paying £30?

June 14, 2013

How do we half share, I bath him and feed him 6 out of 7 nights and he’s back with me by 7am when I’m ready for work, I live with my new partner so am not intilted to benefits other than chid benefits. As most of you state it should be 50 -50 so how does he get away with paying £30 when it cost me a good £100 plus a week to support our son and even more for child care!

    its based on his income. 50/50 dont just mean costs it means time with the child aswel. if your ex was earning 1000 a week you would get 150 a week thats 50 more than the 100 you say you pay out but i bet you would not refuse it and say he is paying too much would you???? and i bet your 50/50 comment would go out the window too. think about what you are saying before posting.

    50/50 is not just about the cost but contact with the child too, he only gets 1 night so that is the 50/50 out the window. the £30 is based on his income and if he earned 1000 a week you would get 150 that is 50 more than the 100 you say it cost you. I bet if you got 150 a week you wud not moan then and i bet you wud not refuse it saying he is paying too much wud you???? so again your 50/50 goes out the window. think before you post. yes 50/50 it shud be including contact and if he was earning 1000 a week then he should only pay you 50 if that is what you beleive.

    87 pound a month child benefit 130 pounds a month child maintenance , If you put in 130 pounds that’s 347 quid a month to look after your kid , just me repeating my post on a very similar question on this site a few days ago !

    100 a week to keep a kid well if it was 50/50 then max he should pay you is £50 typical woman only interested in money there is more to life than money contributing financially is only a small part of the up bringing of a kid and contributing emotionally and mentally is priceless

    well if he is being a dad as much as he can and paying what he can, then the child is not suffering any issues from this, I f you require more it will more than likely impact on his ability to spend time and expense with the child too. You only have him half the time and in your half pay out for childcare? Children are not free to look after so consider your blessings rather than seek to rock your boat and end up with an alienated child and a broken ex partner, The child is the important piece in your tale and yet you have not mentioned their welfare once.
