Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. I am just reviewing your query.
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
The income from a live in partner is not taken into consideration when calculating child maintenance, it is the absent parent's income that is assessed. If there are other children living in the absent parent's household, then those children may be considered in the calculation (i.e. reducing liability).
There are several calculations the CMS carry out when assessing the payment a parent should make. They have a useful leaflet which tells you more, which you can find here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/672432/how-we-work-out-child-maintenance.pdf
