Child maintenance

Child maintenance plays an important part in your child’s welfare by contributing towards their day-to-day living expenses.

Separated parents are encouraged to arrange their child maintenance by making a family-based arrangement, as an alternative to going through the Child Maintenance Service.

Our mediators can help you with your discussions to produce a family based arrangement, assisting with how you work out what should be paid, how often and by what method. You can also consider how to cover ‘one off’ costs like school trips.

You can also discuss child maintenance as part of your discussions on arrangements for children.

To discuss child maintenance in mediation please call us on 020 7383 0733 or email us at mediation@dialogue-london.org.uk.
