JQuery Parent/child form. how to Post to MVC Controller

This project is a booking calendar for a Spa.

I have a calendar on the Booking page. When the user clicks the calendar, a JQuery dialog is displayed with booking info.

The end user will here enter one or more treatments before they enter any information about the Customer. Since I don't know if this is a return or new customer, I don't want to save to the DB at this point so I put the information in a table in the dialog.

When the user press the OK-button, I'd like to save the information to the server. There are several form fields and off course the table with the information. How do I pass the data to the server with an AJAX call? If I use a Form Post, the data in the table will not be passed.

Any help is appreciated.

Best Regards

I ended up with several AJAX calls to solve this.
First I add the parent record and then each child-record in separate ajax posts sending each field and specifying them in the controller.
I found some solutions to passing json to the controller in c# using model binders, but could not get them to work in VB.
