    I have 2 child one now say she wants to live with her dad, the other with me, how do we work out child maintenance as the dad is saying we both don’t have to pay any maintenance now as we have shared care, but my question is he’s on a lot more income than myself and I feel like the child that lives with me will miss out

    I think he is correct in what he’s saying, you have a 50/50 split. So no one has to pay maintenance.
    im not sure how it works though, with two children living with separate parents and how you arrange contact with the child you’re not living with. I’m assuming, maintenance would be minimal depending on how frequently you see the child that doesn’t live with you. If this is equal as well then no one is required to pay any maintenance

    Ya’all should be co parent/friendly enough to the point that if your struggling then being able to ask him to help support the child with you shouldnt be inappropriate to just ask for help of him.
