    When doing maintenance calculations do you take a yearly one week holiday with the father into consideration (so does this 1 week count towards over night stays)

    Any reduction in normal rate payments must have overnight stays. Payments are based on number of nights per year starting with 52-103 a reduction of 1/7. If it was 104-155 nights then reduction of 2/7 and so on. I would say that because this is a yearly thing and the child is staying overnight while on holiday then yes it should be included. However you could always go on the CMS website and message them asking for them to clarify for you. Hope this helps and stay safe

    Hi there

    Please remember that you can always contact our single parent helpline for clarification.  We have a fantastic team of trained advisers that are able to give accurate information.  Here are their details:

    • Gingerbread Single Parent Helpline – Freephone 0808 802 0925

    Opening hours:  Mon 10 – 6, Tues 10- 4, Wed 10 – 1 & 5 – 7, Thurs 10 – 4, Fri 10 – 4  They can be busy so callers can expect to wait up to 20 minutes before the call is answered.

    Its brilliant that parents are able to give their knowledge and experience but sometimes personal circumstances may change or alter specific information.  As Bunnyhop has said you can always check the CMS website as well.

    Take care, Justine
