I have a child lives with me and other two children with ex.
I am hoping to secure CB for the one lives with me, ex has CB for the other two. So, question;
Can I claim CSA for child who lives with me whilst ex claims for other two?
Just to clarify, if ex would discuss money then I would much rather have a Family Arrangement.
Thanks for the post. If your ex-partner has 2 children and you have 1 and you both claim child benefit for the children living with you, then you can claim child maintenance for the 1 child who lives with you. To get an indication of what your payments might be for the 2 children living with your ex-partner, use the Wikivorce child maintenance calculator
If you could discuss child maintenance with your ex-partner, then family-based arrangements are easier to set-up, more flexible in that they can change when one parent’s circumstances change and do not have to be just about money. They also do not involve the CSA.
