We are specialist child
maintenance solicitors. This can be a particularly contentious issue between separating parties and often cannot be decided by the parties between themselves. There are four options available
to determine how care for the children will be funded:
- Private agreement between the parents. Our child maintenance solicitors can assist you with negotiations with the other parent, which could form part of a
- Legal agreement, which is a private agreement negotiated by the parties and drafted by your child maintenance solicitor that is endorsed by the court (in divorce or
dissolution proceedings only).
- Application to the Child Maintenance Service. Child maintenance solicitors cannot do this for you: you will need to contact the CSA directly.
- Application to the Court for a maintenance order (in divorce or dissolution proceedings only). This is available only in very limited circumstances (for example to
fund school fees).

solicitors can advise the best option for you, which will depend on your circumstances. Contact us on 02085546263 for help and advice or email for a call back on
