Customer Question

Hello I want to know a right amount of Child Maintenance for my child. Involved persons: Me + our child lives in UK, my ex lives in UK, my ex 1st child lives in Lithuania with a mom of this child (he has a Lithuanian court order for child maintenance). So it means, my ex has 2 childrens. His weekly earnings are: 333.48 per week. How much of Child Maintenance must to receive my child? x


1) 333.48£  - 11% (36,68£) deduction for his 1st child = 296,79£

296,79£ - 12% amount for his 2nd child (our child!) = 35,62£

Right amount for my child = 35,62£?


2) 333.48£ - 16% (for 2 kids, and its doesnt matter that 1 lives in Europe, another in UK)  AND DIVIDED FOR 2 KIDS = 26,68£

Right amount is for my child = 26,68£?
