Telegraph article about fathers with low incomes and substantial capital assets paying low child support

In categories:

An article in the Telegraph quotes comments made by Mostyn J calling on the government to change the law so that fathers with substantial capital assets but low incomes can once again be required to pay more in child support. The article also notes the judge’s view that he could make more generous lump sum payments for specific items for the child (under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989) in order to recognise the injustice of the current system.
