Hi we have two young children so I need to pay child maintenance of 20% of my net monthly income, which will leave me with approx. £2,140.
My stbx has a net monhtly salary of £1600 she works 30 hours a week so would also be entitled to Working tax credits of approx. £500 per month plus chld benefit of £140.
That would give her a net monthly income of aprox. £2,740 excl childcare (which 70% will be covered in cost of childcare benefit)
Now excluding all other figures of splitting equity and penson sharing etc. If those are the figures we end up with i.e. her net income is £2,740 and mine is £2,140 would I be expeced to pay her spousal maintenace on top of this?
Also she could work an extra day as 70% of her childcare costs would be met or am I not seeing this in the correct light?
Any suggestions, anyone?
