COVID-19 IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Clearly we cannot hold face to face meetings at present due to the social distancing measures introduced as a result of the Covid 19 outbreak.  However, we are still open and able to help you resolve matters by using technology.  MIAMs and mediations can be conducted by Skype (or other video conferencing platforms) and, if you do not have the facility for this, we can exceptionally conduct discussions over the telephone.  Please call Lesley on 07376 543412 to discuss the practicalities of mediating in these difficult times. 

Child Maintenance

Although the Child Maintenance Service can assess the amount to be paid by one parent for their children, this can take time and incur fees.  It is also difficult to vary the sum if circumstances change. 

We can help you to arrive at a figure for maintenance which is realistic and affordable to enable both parents to have enough to live and provide for their children.  If you wish to secure those payments, an Order can be obtained from the Court by consent after mediation but this is not essential. 

We would ask you to complete a form with details of your income and outgoings and work through those figures with both of you to find an appropriate figure.  In this way, you are involved in arriving at and understanding the final figure payable.
