Thank you for your question.
The normal 6 step process for child maintenace is only based on income.
You can ask the CMS to look at certain types of the paying parent's income that are not included in the main rules they use to work out child maintenance - this would have to be over £2,500.00 per year. A PPI payout is therefore unlikely to be considered as income.
I would be grateful if you could kindly rate my answer. I am new to be service and positive feedback is gratefully received.
