I have been paying my ex full Maintenance through the CSA for almost a year now. When the arrangement was made, she was in part-time work. She has just recently gone back to full-time. Am I right in thinking this makes absolutely no difference to the amount I am due her, and there is no requirement to inform the CSA of the change to her work pattern?
Thanks

CSA payments are based only on the earnings of the NRP (you).

Even if your ex were to win the euro millions jackpot, you would still have to pay her the same slice of your wages.

Playing devils advocate here, but wouldn''t the kids benefit if she has returned to full time work as there would be more disposable income into the house and therefore for the children?

I wont hijack the thread either except to say that both incomes should be taken into account when two parents are working full time.
