Child maintenance - variations for home schooling

New Member Registered

Currently pay child maintenance to my ex for our 2 children, I have 1 child with my new partner and her 2 children that live with us which the amount is based on by CMS.

1 of my partners children is home schooled which is an additional expense for us - could this been used as a variation in the child maintenance I currently pay? He also has suspected autism but we don't have a diagnosis for this yet.

Many thanks in advance

Hi, I don't know of any reductions based on home schooling. Cms only go by their formula based on how many other children you support etc.

Other expense:

costs to support children who live with you if they have a disability or a long-term illness


If your able to get evidence of disability/illness then they will likely accept it.
