Perhaps he has misunderstood this bit:
Maybe he doesn't understand that this is taken into account in calculating the CS figure, and thinks that the deduction comes after the calculation?A parent's child support percentage represents the share of the costs of the child they are required to meet, based on their share of income, less their contribution to the costs of the child provided directly through care
Yeh I am not sure, it didn't sound right to me, I did tell him the findings on here and he had a laugh. He doesn't take anything out of CS but I provide him with nappies and wipes when DS goes there. And everything else that goes into the nappy bag....
Meh not true laugh back at him next time he say that to you.
Also he has to provide everything when your child is in his care so if he keeps on saying this to you tell him you will bill him half of the nappies, food, electricity water, that your child uses when in your care!
Haha! That's ridiculous! Maybe you should add up what you spend on the kids in a week and bill him lol
He is trying to trick you OR has been given wrong info
That is incorrect, as OPs have said already. CSA reduce the percentage of care you have if the other parent has them one or more nights per week, which in turn reduces how much child support they have to pay. That way they're covered for the costs associated with their care.
Reverse it to him and ask him: How about if I charge you for every expense I incur when the he is in my care?" When he goes all, "That's not right," just say, "I rest my case."
EDIT: That's already been said sorry I didn't see there was an over the page page.
He is meant to be providing for his children whilst they are in his care so he should be supplying clothing, nappies & wipes himself.
Details have already been listed with pp but the other possible area for confusion is change of assessment.
If he is incurring significant cost to see the child, over 10% of income on child care and other such things, he can apply for a change of assessment.
He won't get it since he's not even paying for what has already been deemed his care ratio (you shouldn't have to supply nappies etc), but might be another place for confusion for him
