German to English translations [PRO]
Law/Patents - Law (general) / Judicial enforcement in regard to child maintenance claims
German term or phrase: trotz

Does "trotz" indicate that he made that payment of € 15,100.00 and that after that the remaining debit balance/overall amount owed for child maintenance is € 32,100.00 or does it mean that his payment is not creditable towards the overall amount owed for child maintenance?

Please also provide a translation for "trotz" along with your technical reading of the source that matches/reflects the latter.

Please indicate if you think the interpretation problem mentioned is not relevant to the translation of "trotz"/the sentence or can be made not relevant by some smart move (if so, which one would that be?).

=> It is worth noting that 3 children are mentioned but that the claims are somehow broken down by child in the text.
