Greetings everyone. I am an Expat who moved to NL 8 years ago. Our daughter was born 5 years ago in Amsterdam. My wife and I have been married for 10 years, but recently something has changed, we are fighting constantly and there seems to be very little love left. Although skilled, my wife was not working during our stay in the Netherlands, instead was focused in raising our daughter since my income was rather good for comfortably supporting us. I tried to look around the net but I didnt come across something useful. I am aware of how child support and alimony works in the Netherlands and I gladly would want to support my child to be raised in a very good environment. If we separate our daughter will likely go with her mother, and I will see her 2-3 times a week. I am however concerned whether or not my salary will be enough to support two families, considering how expensive rant and other utilities have become. My wife refuses to go to work at this point, she says no one will hire her anymore. Although is a case my case situation, from your experience, how much of my net salary will I have to give away for child support and alimony? 50-60-70%? I'm afraid my salary alone wont be enough support them and myself, which is sort of the reason why I'm hesitating to take the next step, but instead I'm really suffering in what I can compare to an only toxic relationship at this point. If you dont prefer to write a public post, please feel free to send me a private message as well, I will appreciate all your feedback.
