Have you looked at how much you would have to pay her through the CSA? It may turn out to be less than you give her now. There is,Im sure, a helpline for advice you could phone to get a rough figure.

Hiya Robert and welcome.
I would check out, maybe at the CAB, how much you would be paying through the CSA. It may be less than you think, I only receive £60 a month from my ex through the CSA......
It's nice to be back......

Payments to your child for their upbringing are far more important that debt repayments, and if this is your first child you can expect to pay 15% of your net salary to your baby's mother. If this leaves you with no money to fund debt repayments, then you may need to consider whether bankruptcy is a better option for you financially.
