    Hi All,

    Just joined the forum hoping to get some advice (and hopefully give some in the future).

    I’ve moved in with my new partner and she has 2 children who now stay with us about 65% of the time. (the rest is with their dad).

    I need to do a recalculation for my child maintenance payments due to a salary change and there is a question on the form about other children that live with me. Do I add my partners children to this? My partner does receive child maintenance from their dad but it’s not a massive amount so my costs have increased.

    Has anyone been in the same situation? Would really appreciate some advice.

    Thanks

    hi,

    as other children are living with you majority of time, I think you should let CMS know. they are likely to take that into account and reduce your payments.
