Reform child maintenance – flat rates per child per night

Petition Details

Change the way child maintenance is calculated from a percentage of the non-resident parent’s gross income to a set amount for the child per night that the resident parent has them more than the non-resident.

Additional Information

Eg. Parent 1: 4 nights per week parent 2: 3 nights per week, means pay for 1 night only.
At the moment child maintenance is calculated by way of a percentage of the non-resident parent’s gross monthly wage. This means that more child maintenance is paid by non-resident parents who have higher earnings. This is also unaffected by the number of nights a non-resident parent has their child for. This is unfair to non-resident parents, and should be reformed.
