It is often said that in family breakdown, it is the children who suffer the most. We recognise that when relations between adults breakdown, any children are undoubtedly affected. We aim to assist our clients in ensuring an outcome which is in the best interests of any children.

We are able to assist our clients in attempting to make suitable arrangements for the residence of any children affected by a family breakdown and, where appropriate, to ensure that children continue to enjoy relations with both parties. We would normally attempt to resolve matters outwith the court process but our experienced solicitors are able to assist throughout any court action that might be necessary, from the inception of proceedings to child welfare hearings to proof if necessary.

Issues of child maintenance are in general dealt with by the Child Maintenance & Enforcement Commission when parents cannot agree on the level of maintenance to be paid. However, the courts are still able to adjudicate on some matters to do with maintenance, primarily the payment of school fees. We are happy to assist should this prove an issue.

It is also the case that children over the age of sixteen and under twenty-five who are unable to support themselves financially are able to look to both parents for assistance. This is often the case with students. The obligation to support might be fulfilled by a parent providing board and lodgings. Where however one parent does not contribute financially and can afford to do so, we can advise on your rights to pursue a claim for maintenance and if necessary take the matter through court with you.
