At the time of a relationship breakdown there is often a real fear by one of the parties that they will not be able to support themselves and their dependents financially
This may be as a result of them being out of the workforce, having caring responsibilities for children or other persons, ill-health or not sufficient income to meet their needs. Unfortunately, it may also be that one of the parties has stopped providing financial assistance and the assets of the relationship are under their control.
It is important if you find yourself in this situation that you act quickly to resolve the situation.
The most common questions we get asked in these types of situations are:
- Do I have to pay my ex-partner maintenance and if so how much and for how long?
- How much child support do I have to pay for my children?
- Can I agree with my ex-partner on child support?
- What is a child support agreement?
- Do I need to keep receipts for child support purposes?
- Can I pay child support directly to my child?
- Do I have to pay private school fees? Who does?
- What is covered under a child support assessment?
