Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland and can help you with your question today. Is there an order for maintenance or is it agreed informally too?
Thanks. You’ll know from using the child maintenance calculator that the amount of maintenance is calculated partly on the number of nights PER YEAR that the so called absent parent has the child. So if the number of nights per year increases so the maintenance is adjusted to reflect that. It’s not as simple as just not paying during holiday periods. The overall weekly or monthly maintenance should be recalculated. I hope that helps to answer your question.
