hello. going thru the divorce process slowly. i have 2 sons. 1 is 18 and in full time work, the other is 16 and has just started a job taking home £185 per week. will i be liable for child support for either of them. its not that i wont pay, i just wondered how much. thanks
18 yo is in full time employment, so no liability for you. Child support for 16 yo would be 15% of your nett income (after tax etc) That is reduced by 1/7 for every night that he stays regularly with you. So, for example, if he stayed every Friday and Saturday with you, it would be reduced by 2/7, or if he stayed alternate Fridays and Satudays, it would be reduced by 1/7.
In a nut shell you will not be liable to pay child support if they are both in full time employment, even if the youngest is 16 You might wish to look at the Footprint free CSA Calculator at www.evidence-tracker.com it is the most advanced CSA calculator available on the web, and it free.
