Cm payment help

I have a court order which states I have 6 out of 14 nights.  So 60/40 plus half the holidays.

The cm calculator it seems doesn't take into consideration holidays. How do I work out what I should be paying? Do I have to open a case with cms?

hi,

CMS use shared care bands. so they would put you in a band depending on average number of overnights per week: 

  • 52 and 103 nights: child maintenance is reduced by 1/7th for each child
  • 104 and 155 nights: child maintenance is reduced by 2/7th for each child
  • 156 and 174 nights: child maintenance is reduced by 3/7th for each child
  • 175 nights or more nights: child maintenance is reduced by 50%, plus an extra £7 a week reduction for each child.

try to work out which band you fall under

But do these bands include the shared holidays?
