Child Maintenance Stockport
What is child maintenance?
Child maintenance is a recurring payment provided by one parent to the other. A child's living expenses are covered by the payment. The amount of child maintenance must be paid is determined by a variety of criteria and situations.
Separated parents should try to discuss and agree on a child support amount. This, however, is not always achievable. When the two parties' relationship is no longer amiable, they will apply to the government-run CMS (Child Maintenance Service), which will organise and collect child maintenance payments.
Our Stockport divorce lawyers have supported a number of families to resolve child maintenance issues directly, through the CMS, and even through the court system.
A child arrangements order specifies who is responsible for a child's care, including who the children reside with, where they live, and how and when the child meets the other party. When parents cannot agree on how to care for their children, child arrangements orders are frequently employed.
Several hearings in a family court may be required as part of the child arrangements order procedure. However, once in place, it is legally enforceable and normally lasts until the minor reaches the age of 18.
Our Stockport family law team can help to support you throughout the process and clarify arrangements as quickly and amicably as possible.
