    Normally they only take 40% of income when there are arrears outstanding.
    Maintenance for two children is 19% of gross income less 1/7 for each night of shared care..
    They only take a fifth of the maintenance as a fee if the NRP is not willing to set up regular payments him/her self and chooses to pay through CMS.
    The PWC will only receive 96% of the maintenance if payments are through CMS.
    Always best to make a private arrangement if possible.
