Hi, thanks for your question. I am a qualified family law solicitor.
Yes, you would still be liable for child maintenance, however this would be at a reduced amount due to him staying overnight 3 nights a week.
Please can you confirm your gross salary and if you have any other children in your household and I will provide you with the calculation.
