Rejected petition Make child maintenance payments go up. No more bare minimum.

People with custody of the child are expected to pay a lot more then the other parent. Parents who do not see their child should pay more! And the bare minimum should be at least £150 a month! Also, there should be Christmas and children's birthday bonuses for parents who don't buy presents.

More details

Those single parents out there that don't get a break and the other parent chooses not to be there should be given an opportunity to get more money to occupy their children more and they can choose to spend the money on some childcare help. The cost of child maintenance should go up!! This helps single parents to stop themselves getting out of debt and having money for their kids savings and holidays, groups or educational groups/toys. This gives equal opportunities to single parent households.
