My eldest child of 9 years mum is fine with our arrangement but my youngest of 6 years mum just decided its not enough even tho i do all the driving which is 80 miles one way thats a min of 640 miles a month. I believe i do and give enough

Does any of wat ive said matter or does it just come down to what i earn
Expert:  Harris replied 3 months ago.

Apologies for the delay in responding.
On the information you have provided you have a legal obligation to pay each mother £58 per week child maintenance. Anything in addition to this will be voluntary by you and you do not have to pay it.

In relation to the travel time and costs, and you would be entitled to reduce the liability by the costs of travel to see the girls given the distance they live.
