Child Maintenance: Ensuring the Well-being of Your Children

Child Maintenance is a critical aspect of ensuring the well-being and upbringing of children after the separation or divorce of their parents. It involves the financial support provided by one parent to the other to cover the costs of raising a child. At United Solicitors, we understand the importance of Child Maintenance in securing the future of your children, and our team of experienced family law solicitors is dedicated to providing comprehensive guidance and support in navigating this process.

What is Child Maintenance?

Child Maintenance, also known as child support, refers to the ongoing financial support paid by one parent to another for the benefit of their child. This support is intended to cover various expenses related to the child’s upbringing, including food, clothing, housing, education, and healthcare. Child Maintenance is typically paid by the non-resident parent to the parent with whom the child primarily resides, although arrangements can vary based on individual circumstances.

Legal Framework:

In the UK, Child Maintenance arrangements are governed by the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) or private agreements between the parents. The CMS calculates the amount of maintenance based on factors such as the non-resident parent’s income, the number of children involved, and the amount of time they spend with each parent. However, parents can also choose to make private arrangements for child maintenance, either through informal agreements or legally binding consent orders.
