Does anybody know what % of my XH's salary I should be receiving as CM? I have one DC, he also has 2 DC from a previous relationship. None of the DC live with him full time, it's an e.ow arrangement for all the kids.
I think it's 15% for the first child and then less for the second. As my child was born last does that mean I'm entitled to less than 15%, even though it's my first dc?

No, your child doesn't cost less just because he/she was born last. Just the same way as his first born doesn't cost more.
I thought they took a percentage for 3 children which is 25% is it? Then split that figure between the children. His other ex will obviously receive more due to having 2 children with him but the amounts for each child will be split evenly.

So say 25% of his earnings is £60 pw, that would be divided by 3 and then you would get £20 and his other ex would get £40.

I might be wrong though so someone correct me if I am wrong.
