Hi,
Question about child support. If my soon to be ex is cohabiting with her fella and two of my children (my son is with me)does that change my level of child support? We've agreed support between us - but before I found out he was living there as well.

NO, they are your children and you are responsible for them financially with your stbx until they are 16 (or 19 if they stay on in full time education. It wouldn't matter if she was cohabiting or married to a millionaire, you would still be responsible.

If all the children are under 18 you still have to pay 20% of your income to her for the two children (deduct 15% off your salary for your son living with you) and she has to pay you 15% of her income (after deducting 20% off her salary for the 2 children living with her)

These are CSA rates

Seems really unfair that she can cohabit with a wealthy man and leave me with all the bills and struggle to make ends meet while she has a good life with another man after soaking me for years. Somethings not right with that.

Oh Huska, c'est la vie. There's a lot not right in the world, but ....

You say you agreed the level of child support between the two of you; not via the CSA? Do you actually mean child maintenance or have you also lumped in spousal maintenance in with this?

Subsequent cohabitation may affect previously agreed maintenance payments.
