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.
