Dear Customer,thank you for using Just Answer.No this is not allowed.Every parent has to pay child- support according to his or her income for the child living with the other parent.It is forbidden to charge up the support for one child against the support for another childPlease tell me whether I could assist youthank you
According to information I've received it looks like German Law states that for each child I should receive the following monthly payments: 6-11 years €364 and 12-17 years €426. So far, I've only ever received £400 every month for both children since 2007. Would I be expected to pay the father maintenance when he has one child now living with him??
Dear Customer,you have to see each child separately, because the child support can be differnt depending on the child`s age.If your income exceeds a certain amount you are obliged to pay child support.If the father`s income exceeds a certain amount he is to pay child supportIf the father has paid too little in the past he owes the children the difference betweenn the child support he has paid and the child support he owed since 2007.Please tell me if I was able to helpThank you
