    Hi everyone.

    I Was wondering if it was worth starting a parental action plan and what might be included? I have some ideas but I presume these are more guidelines as opposed to running up penalties as such?

    Their mum has them 55% me 45% but she gets all the universal credit and child maintenance but she gets paid more so I’m struggling to break even. Does anyone have advice on this? Thanks, any help will greatly appreciated x

    Hi,I’m in mediation atm and practically it favours the mothers side bigtime which is quite sad when fathers want to be involved with their children’s lives,in mine I put down scheduling,extra expenses,how much notice needed to re schedule certain days,child maintenance,kids education,kids meeting new partners,and contact with kids when I don’t have them,I was told if I had my children 50% I wouldn’t have to pay child maintenance,if there is property involved the main carer gets the bigger percentage 60/40 split usually,you will never break even mate it gets worse when your ex forms a new relationship as they make it harder and want more money,my experience anyways

    Thanks Jsmoove.

    Im assuming you’re the father. Do you mind me asking – do you earn more than your ex-partner?

    It all looks a bit grim atm 😕

    Yes I am the father of her children,on paper she earns 3k more a year only because during the marriage I made sacrifices and I let her focus on her career So I cut my hours back to look after the kids so I missed out on a lot of payrises
