There is a responsibility on parents to provide proper maintenance, which is financial support for their children in accordance with their own income and the child’s needs.
If an informal agreement is not reached, a parent may apply to the Court for a maintenance order which sets out the amount of the maintenance and whether it is then paid periodically (monthly or weekly). A spouse can also apply to the Court for financial support from their spouse in certain circumstances. Our team offers specialist advice to clients on the entitlement to maintenance and the legal limits on such payments. We will also make the application on your behalf, whether it be for a new Court order or the variation of an existing order, if there has been a substantial change in circumstances.
Our team is committed to finding the best solution for our clients and any children involved in these delicate family law matters. We offer both flexible pricing and fixed fee options across all of the above matters to help alleviate the stress of what is often a difficult time for all concerned parties.
