[Solved] Maintenance Southern Ireland

Good morning,

I hope you can help.. I am due to go to court in Ireland next week to enforce contact and a formal arrangement, the issue is the maintenance that she agreed to was £100 a month but now says she wants £180 a month.. (I live in the UK)

According to what I can find online it seems : "The max. payment that the District Court can order by way of maintenance orders is €150 per week per child and €500 for the spouse. The Circuit Court has unlimited jurisdiction."

Does this mean the max I can be legally forced to pay is 150euro ? So basically £125 approx?

What does the €500 relate to? A one off payment?

Many thanks

Mark

Thanks, just generic info.

They don't seem to have a system that calculates the maintenance it depends on the judge.

Unfortunately, we don't have knowledge on the rules outside the UK, so I would strongly advise you to get some professional advice locally, it could save you in the long run.
