How much should I be paying my ex?

December 18, 2017

I am writing as a father, i am 22 and im a student in uni training to be a teacher and my ex girlfriend wants £100 a month from i earn from student loans 7,032 per year. The baby hasnt stayed with me as of yet, i only met him for the forst time this week after 3 months due to the conflict what went on. I dont work, i just study and study on placement in schools which is unpaid also. Now i was wondering what i should be giving her per month? If you could help please. Iknow she claims benefits but dont know what they are.

    Best thing to do is to complete this and see what figure you get at the end.

    Hi Gregg

    If you are a full time student then you have no obligation to pay child support. The nil rate applies in your case. A student loan is exactly that – A LOAN. You have to pay it back.
