    This is a question about the Child Support Service in the UK

    Long story short,

    My ex lives with his new girlfriend and her 4 kids.
    They all see their dads so I'm gonna assume that she is receiving CSA payments for them.

    Now my ex is tighter than tight with his money and I know for a fact he hates the fact he has to pay for his children and will try his hardest not to pay for them if he could.

    Now hes moved in with her and all these kids will that affect the amount he pays me towards his two biological children?

    They are not married.
    They do not have any children together.

    I can't see how it would, but I don't know for sure. Even though he probably will be contributing towards the children if he is living with them he isn't legally obligated to pay for them because they aren't his biological children, nor would her wages or anything to do with this girlfriend affect how much he should pay for his children out of his sole wages.

    When we were looking at this a few years back we were told that my wages would count. That basically if I earnt a lot more than him then I should be paying more of our bills meaning he has more spare money. So he could pay more in maintenance.

    And I thought that that was utter bullshit myself

    Biological children or not. If he’s in the same house as them it will affect the payment to his own children!
