Finding a Solution through your Separation

Chose Family Mediation - The Perfect Starting Point


A child’s maintenance is usually paid via the parent that doesn’t have the full day-to-day care of their child/children and it makes a huge difference to how they live their lives. When calculations are made for the maintenance it is based upon how many dependent children there are, and the total gross income.

However, this process isn’t always easy to go through and dealing with finances can make even the most simple separations a lot more stressful. When dealing with child inclusive maintenance it doesn’t always have to go through the child maintenance services but if it does there is a £20 fee for the application of a calculation and then further charges if it isn’t processed through a direct payment option.  The use of direct pay means that payments are paid between the two parties only and not through CMS in which these additional fees can occur. Speak to our Just Divorce Liverpool family mediators today to find out the best plan of action for you!

What if Custody is Shared?

However, this can be very different if the care of the child/children staying at the family home is equally shared between both parties or one parent has the child/children on more of a weekly/nightly basis. If this occurs then for an equal share of the child there is no maintenance to pay by either of the parents, but if the care is split by one parent having the child 1 or 2 nights a week then there is a reduction in the maintenance payments.

Going through this type of process means that calculations can be made exactly on what each individual is earning, without much room for challenges It is noted that this process can be very stressful to experience and sometimes the need for an accredited family mediator becomes crucial.
