2 Separate Child Payments Reduced to 1. Does the remaining child payments increase?

Hi

I have 2 children by two different X partners.

The oldest will be 18 and finish F/T education next year. When I stop paying for this child the other mother has stated that I will be paying her more. 

Is this the case as i can't find this anywhere online?

Thanks

There are more knowledgable people on here who can confirm or deny what I say. There are different formulae that can apply depending on income, but as an example the 'Basic Rate' of maintenance is 12% of gross income for 1 child and 16% for 2 children. Now I am not sure if this means that for 2 children with different partners you will pay each ex-partner 8% each - but if that is the case then when the eldest child drops out of the CM case and only one child remains you will then have to pay 12% of gross income to the parent of that remaining child.

@Will99 Thanks for the feedback Will. That was a shock to the system, just when you think you can soon afford the gas bill 🙂

Yes, that's my understanding of how it works also.
