I believe that maintenance awards are based on regular disposable income rather than one-off windfalls. If his regular income has increased substantially because he is getting a lot of interest from this money that would affect things. If his disposable income has gone up because his windfall, for example, paid off a mortgage that might have an effect.

CSA aside, would he consider putting some of this money into a savings account or trust fund for his child/ren's future? That might be a better route to take.
