Im sorry if this has already been asked but what should child maintenance payments cover ?
My ex has used the government calculator and has said he has the children 2 nights a week, which he generally does. However, i feed them before he picks them up and they are back with me in the morning. I prepare all their packed lunches or make the payments for school lunches. When they need clothes or uniform I buy this as well, so I’m not sure why he should get a reduction for them staying with him for 2 nights.
Also, is it supposed to cover things like scout/cub subs, school trips, scout/cub trips, sports club subs or are these classed as extra?
