Calculating maintenance

Hi

Does anyone know how to calculate maintenance when the NRP pays two separate mums?

So I'm trying to work out how much my DS's Dad should be paying, however he also pays for another 2 children. I've tried the calculator but it only gives the option to include children who live with his Dad?

Thanks

I think it’s calculated as the amount for how many children then divided by the mothers, so for example my child’s dad has another child and the cms calculate it as 16% for two children then divided by two, so we each get 8% hope this helps

Yes it does divide by mothers- try using the calculator as the paying parent- this should give you the option to add another household.
