Child support solicitors help with processes and issues related to the financial support towards a child’s everyday living expenses.

One of the biggest worries for separating parents is the impact of their separation on their children and concerns about payment amounts and arrangements can be a significant source of stress. Our child support solicitors understand how important it is for you to know that you have the right arrangement in place and that this can help to reduce any tension in your relationship as parents.

The Child Maintenance Service

It is the Child Maintenance Service who determines how much a parent is required to pay – you can access their child maintenance calculator here.

You may require a child support solicitor in situations where it may be appropriate for maintenance to be paid above the usual level by a parent of sufficient means, such as for educational expenses or where a child has a disability.

Our child support & maintenance solicitors advise about all aspects of child maintenance at our offices in Newcastle and South Shields, whether you are the parent with care, the non-resident parent or where there is a shared care arrangement. This includes situations where it may be appropriate for maintenance to be paid above the usual level by a parent of sufficient means, such as for educational expenses or where a child has a disability.

Solicitors Regulation Authority and are here to help you every step of the way. Contact us by phone, email or complete the contact form on our website or find answers to some FAQs on child support/child maintenance here.
