    As stated, the OP hasn't come back, so probably not genuine, but the bit that got me is the complaining about £75. Even if the ex is taking this money and spending it in Westfields (!), the child most like still costs more than £150 (if we are assuming the ex is also paying £75).

    So the OP just sounds like they don't want to pay anything for their own child. It shouldn't matter how much each party is earning, it matters how much the child is costing!



    The OP posted yesterday :)


    To be fair, £75 a week is fairly reasonable. That's £325 a month; so £650 + child benefit (which is around £90?).


    That's getting into the realms of actual costs.

    Oops, I think I got bored after a few of the posts and skipped to the end.
