If your ex made an applictaion to the CMS (new CSA) then you would have to pay 16% of your gross income in total - less a one seventh reduction to reflect the fact that the children stay with you one night a week.Anything you pay on top of that would be voluntaryThe fact that your ex has a new partner does not change thisPlease ask if you need further detailsClare
