its fair to say she won''t struggle. she earns enough from the state without my money turning up and i''m not going to simply stop paying for the kids and its not my intentions to make her struggle. i''ll never let my children go without. in fact they go without more now than they would should i be a student. the main plus would be i''d have a little more say in where their money goes and not on her new jeans/t shirts OR new born she''s about to have with her new partner.

child maintenance is based on the principle that all parents should support their children. So even if parents are on modest incomes or state benefits they are required to pay a flat rate amount. The Government has concluded there is no compelling reason why students should be treated differently from other NRPs in future.

The new scheme won''t be introduced until at least later this year and it may be some time before parents on the current scheme are transferred into the gross income scheme. However you wouldn''t be paying all your income, just a percentage minus deductions for the average number of overnights the children stay with you. If you are on a low income the new flat rate will be £7 per week.

Hope that helps. :)
