Thank you for your patience.
If you are paying child maintenance as agreed with the child maintenance services, there is no obligation on you to provide additional financial support. If you do provide it then you are doing this voluntarily.
This is assuming there is no court order /other agreement requiring you to contribute more.
I hope this help. Let me know if you have any questions.
Understood, Ian. As long as the amount you agreed to pay is the amount set by the child maintenance guidelines, you do not need to pay anything else, unless you want to.
I hope this helps. Feel free to get back with anything else. In the meantime, many thanks for using our service.
