confusing wording on the consent order

(1 Post)

I've just re read my consent order (I was the petitioner) (signed 2 years ago). It states as follows;

It is ordered that….
The Respondent will pay to the Petitioner maintenance in the amount sent out below. The amount shall be whatever payments when added to:

(a) the payments, if any made by the Respondent to the CSA pursuant to a calculation, and

(b) paragraph 5 below,

total £xxx per annum.

Paragraph 5 then states that the Respondent pays to the Petitioner £x per month for the benefit of the children.

Does this mean that when the child maintenance aspect stops, that maintenance continues at £xxx less £x?

I can't see anything about 'global' or anything like that and am just a bit confused.

Thank you for any light you can shed on the wording.
