Is this enough child support from my child’s father ?

My child’s father pays me £180 a month for our daughter he earns like £400+ probably more a week he doesn’t have any other children he works full time and lives with his mum so doesn’t have anything to really pay for my daughter , she never goes to his or stays over , I mean would allow her I’ve never stopped him from seeing her never but he doesn’t ever do anything with her she’s 19 months and he has never taken her out he will visit once a week for a few hours. Is £180 by uk government enough for what he earns. Just curious.

    UK - As far as I know the child support agency is not taking on any more claims but they will advise you roughly how much he should pay but as far as I know it is 33% of his wages - be careful if you claim benefits because what he gives gets deducted from your benefit, Good Luck

    It is not enough money but is still close, you would need 20 more for it to be legal
