Sorry to say, it makes absolutely no difference, if she moves in with a millionaire, it would make no difference! You have a financial responsibility to your child, at least until they reach the age of 16, or 20 if they remain in full time, non advanced education.

If you pay into a pension, that will reduce the amount you pay, or if your child stays with you an increased number of nights each week. You could also claim some of the travel costs if you travel some distance for contact.

Uni is counted as advanced education and payments should stop once a child starts Uni. College and women approved apprenticeships are considered as non advanced and payments would have to continue in that case.
