Child Maintenance Law Wrexham Solicitors: How we can help
We help clients in Wrexham, Oswestry, North Wales, and all surrounding areas, with proven success in child maintenance law and family law.
Our family law solicitors in Wrexham are very experienced in assisting clients to agree on how much their former partner ought to be paying to them going forward as well as negotiating the change of terms in an existing agreement or helping clients in circumstances where maintenance payments have stopped for whatever reason.
Child maintenance is paid by one parent who the child concerned does not live with for the majority of the time. It is paid to the parent with whom the child does live. There are three main ways that child maintenance can be decided. These are as follows:
- Family-based agreement – this refers to an agreement being put in place between you and your former partner concerning how much maintenance ought to be paid and how often. It is usually the cheapest, quickest, and most amicable way of dealing with child maintenance.
- The Child Maintenance Service (CMS) – this is a government scheme that was set up to calculate the maintenance payment for you. However, there can sometimes be charges if the CMS is involved in your case.
- Order from the court – the court has the power to set maintenance payments in place and this is usually done when one parent earns considerably more than the other.
Usually, child maintenance is paid until the child concerned attains the age of 18 (or 20 if they can continue in full-time education). However, if your circumstances or the circumstances of your former partner change at any point, it is possible to change the terms of your child maintenance agreement.
Our dedicated child maintenance law solicitors in Wrexham adopt a pragmatic approach to agreeing on child maintenance. We endeavour to protect our clients’ interests but also provide honest advice about your objectives.
