Hi. I am a divorced man with three children of school age who live with my ex wife. When working out how much maintenance to pay for my three children, what is included in the calculation? I get bonus, travel and overtime on top of my basic pay, so are any of these earnings included when working out how much I need to pay?There are also times in between contracts when i am not working so am I liable to pay for the weeks I'm out of work and not earning? Am I also legally obliged to pay the mortgage for the house my ex and children live in on top of any maintenance amount or would it be included in that figure?
Thank you for your reply. As a contractor i am sometimes not working between contracts what happens when i am not in work, am i legally liable to pay maintenance in these periods?
