Our expert says:
Discuss this with someone at the maintenance court, rather than assume that he is accurate in his estimate. I think the courts would also look at his income compared to yours, when considering the maintenance, and would look at what you and your child would need. The fact that the child is in your care should be irrelevant as to how much he should pay.
As Lolo says, better to get this decided by a court as then he would have to pay or face charges of contempt of court. And as Kb says, the issue for a court to decide is the best interests of the CHILD, not hat the father prefers. And if he can't afford the multiple maintenance payments, he had better stop fathering children.
