If a Father is in prison how much, by law, does he have to give? thank you.
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Does he still have any income?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Only what he earns in prison.

How much is that?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I not sure I think its around £42 per month, what sort of, percentage does he have to pay as child maintenance

£5 a week is the usual minimum - but even that would not be ordered where the income is so low.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

Hi Thanks for details, is there a set percentage of a persons earnings or is it based on each individual?
