Shared Parenting Child Benefit etc

Hi

I have an 11 year old daughter whom I have shared parenting with her Mum since she was 2 with pretty much 50/50 care.

During the, school week, I look after her, Fri-Mon and more over holidays. 

In 2020,i looked after her for 185 nights and by end of August this year it will be 122 nights so far in 2021.

Her Mum has always had the Child Benefit and associated tax credits.

I do know I spend much more on my daughter than her Mum including holidays, activities and travel.

Could I have some thoughts/advice as how to proceed to receive a more, equitable financial arrangement?

 

Look forward, to your replies

Hi

You can do a check using this maintenance calculator https://www.gov.uk/calculate-child-maintenance

You can refer the result to your ex. If she disagrees then other options would be going down legal route. It would be difficult to make changes to child benefit/maintenance without a court order.

Thanks for the reply but as we share parenting, there is no child maintenance
