I agreed to Pay what I would have been asked to pay under Child Support / the new rules, is which is 7% of salary after pension contributions before Tax and NI, which is then paid after Tax and NI. This is in effect a Family Agreement. It was clean break divorce and I pay nothing to Nicola who runs her own business. There is no provision in our Court Order for Child Maintenance etc. I have full access to my Daughter but she lives with her mum in Cornwall and I live and work in London. I have agreed to have Jessica for 2 days and a weekend ever half term and I have her for 2 weeks Holiday on top of this. (Any more than this and I would have no holiday, I do have 2 older boys as well at University and working). When ever it is viable I do also include my daughter such as last weekend when I was in Cornwall to play Golf I took her out to dinner. I commuted between London and Cornwall weekly for 13 years.
