Children & Separation

Child Financial Provisions

Child maintenance is payment made to cover a child’s living costs if the parents are separated or have never lived together. This can be agreed privately between parents, but if you are struggling to reach an agreement, our expert family law team can help.

Every family is different, so there isn’t one set rule for how much child maintenance should by paid and who should pay it. Instead, a child maintenance calculator is often used to determine how much maintenance is owed and to whom. There are many factors involved in determining this, such as who takes care of the children, how much parents earn, and how many children you have together.

If you need bespoke legal advice about agreeing child maintenance, speak to our 5-star rated family team today.
