Child support or child maintenance 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. We 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 our support 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.
We advise about all aspects of child maintenance at our offices in Newcastle and South Shields, whether you are the parent with care, 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.
