Child Maintenance Services use a system to calculate the monetary contributions for a paying parent or a receiving parent. 

 

The current system uses GROSS Income to calculate when It should be using NET income. 

The current system ought to be in line as with the Child Benefit system, where a receiving parent who earns over £60000 per Year, then there is no need to receive the extra income, however the  Contact parent is expected to contribute so this ought to be calculated after taking into consideration of their own personal living expenses.  

The current system does not take into consideration of many factors. Each person's circumstances are unique to them. 

The current system fails to recognise living expenses although this can be done as a last resort through the courts, this ought to also be the case with the Child Maintenance services calculations. The current system is flawed and needs a serious review for both parents.
