Child Maintenance & Child Support Solicitors
Upon separation it may be necessary to consider either interim maintenance or long term maintenance or both, whether for you or your spouse or for the children.
Spousal maintenance may be necessary merely on an interim basis or may form part of the overall financial settlement. We can assist in identifying whether such support is required and if so the appropriate level of financial support, thus avoiding the commitment as well as expensive court proceedings for you both.
The Court no longer has any role in determining the amount of child maintenance save in very limited circumstances. Our team can provide advice on the correct level of financial support for children thus avoiding the need for the involvement of the Child Support Agency. In cases where top up maintenance is necessary for high income earners we can provide alternative solutions.
