    CSA and Rental Income

    CSA and Rental Income 30th Jun 10 at 1:28 PM
    I have an ex-wife and two children with her.
    I have an ex-partner and one child + bump.

    I work in Manchester and cycle to work from a small town 17 miles away.

    I'm paying maintenance already to my ex-wife and the children from that relationship come and stay with me on a regular basis.

    I have already voluntarily paid maintenance to my ex-partner and, as I understand it, there is a CSA claim going through now.

    The only way I can afford to stay on in the house in which I currently live (idyllic setting, three bedrooms, garage) is to rent out a room. Should I account for the rental income for purposes of calculating child maintenance payments?
