Child Maintenance Altrincham
What is child maintenance?
Child maintenance is a fixed payment made from one parent to another. The payment covers the living expenses of a child and is calculated based on a range of different criteria and circumstances.
Ideally, parents that are separated will negotiate and agree on the child maintenance amount. However, this is not always possible. In cases where there is a disagreement, they will apply to the government-run CMS (Child Maintenance Service) who arrange and collect child maintenance payments.
Our Altrincham divorce lawyers have supported many families to resolve child maintenance issues directly, through the CMS, and sometimes through the court system.
Custody (Child Arrangements Order) Altrincham
What is a child arrangements order?
A child arrangements order is a court order stating who is responsible for the care of a child, including who the children live with, where they live, and when and how the children will see each parent. Child arrangements orders are often used when the parents cannot agree on how to arrange care of their children.
The child arrangements order process can include several hearings at a family court. However, once in place it is legally binding and will usually remain until the child is 18.
OurAltrincham family law team can help to support you throughout the process and clarify arrangements as quickly and amicably as possible.
