Child maintenance: what’s owed?
If a child maintenance figure has not been decided amicably, our solicitors can help you work out the statutory amount you would be owed, and talk you through the options regarding this. Should the case need to be taken to court, Bramsdon & Childs Solicitors will be there for you every step of the way.
Custody of children: parent vs parent
Child living arrangement laws are in place to determine where a child’s primary residence is, following the separation of the parents. Joint custody of children splits this residency equally and means both parents get an equal say in decision making. Not every divorce ends so amicably; if a mutual resolution cannot be reached, the merits of each parent will be assessed individually.
Working around your needs
Every contact case is different; that’s why we tailor our approach for every client. Whether a third party, such as a grandparent or fellow family member, is petitioning for custody, or you need to apply alter or regain custody following a change in circumstances, you can count on us for all the advice and assistance you need.
