Hi, thank you for your question. It depends given the circumstances of both parents. Please confirm:
-How old are the children?
-Where the parents each reside?
-What the gross salary of the non-resident parent is?
-How many nights, on average, do the children stay overnight with the non-resident parent?
Thanks for confirming. As they both live in England, and his salary is £50,000 the court will not have jurisdiction to deal with the matter and jurisdiction lies with the Child Maintenance Service.
His legal liability for child maintenance on a gross taxable salary of £50,000 per year for 2 children and them staying overnight with him 1-2 nights per week (on average) is £126 per week. The more they stay with him on average the less the liability will be.
