Family Law Report - 9 Issues of Family Separation
Issue 3: Child Support
It is important to consider how the children will be looked after. For example, if your children are living with you most of the time, will this affect your ability to have full time employment? Can you afford to support them financially? Talking about this is the first step. Have you discussed this with the other parent and asked them for assistance? If the other parent is refusing to assist financially you can apply to the Child Support Agency for an assessment. We can help you negotiate a Child Support Agreement so that you don’t have to deal with the Child Support Agency.
