We know how emotive agreeing child support can be, however, there are many options. You might need assistance with negotiating a private agreement, or you may have already had a Child Maintenance Service case opened against you. We are an independent advice service and will always work within your best interests and your children(s).

We are very much aware that being an NRP and having a case with the CMS can be daunting, complex and frustrating, however, we can help. You have a legal right to representation and we can deal with the CMS on your behalf.

We know that people are concerned about the potential costs of professional advice being high, and when you are dealing with financial issues arising from child support, and possibly child arrangement or access, the last thing anyone wants is an unexpected bill.

There is no charge for calling us to see if we can help with your issue. Any quick response to a general child support or child maintenance query is also free of charge.

Complex cases, case-specific queries and tailored advice can be provided under consultation, so we can provide considered advice, support or guidance for your exact situation. It is often typical that if you require the guidance, support and advice we can provide, there may not be a quick solution however, we can discuss all the options available to you for your situation. An initial consultation may be all you need to to move forward with confidence.

If you need assistance with Family Law, we can direct you to the correct legal professionals to support you in that area of law. Similarly, if you are facing a tribunal, and need support with the proceedings in Court, a McKenzie Friend, someone who can present your case effectively to the Court, might be worth considering.
