How much will I pay for my children?

April 30, 2011

I have 3 children. My gross weekly income is £707 per week.

If I have another child with my current partner what will I pay in respect of my other 3 ?

For 3 children = 19% of gross weekly pay But if you have 1 new child who lives with you = 12%

Is this right ?

Or……. do I deduct 12% from my gross weekly £707, then work out 19% of the remaineder to get what my CSA payments will be for my 3 other children ? If I do it that way, I pay more than I am paying now despite having another child !!

Can anyone give me a definitive an swer please ?

    I hope this helps:

    15% for one child
    20% for two children
    25% for three or more children.
    The same rates are FIRST applied to children living in the current family.
