    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.

    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.
