Highly experienced team who are here to help you
Child maintenance is payable to help support your childrens’ day to day needs.
This includes, but is not limited to, housing, clothing, food, clubs and activities. It is not a payment directly for the benefit of the resident parent, it is to support your child.
The Isle of Man does not have a Government Body to assist in the determination of the level of child maintenance that should be paid by a non-resident parent. Here, on the Island, the matter is dealt with partly by the Department of Health and Social Care (if the receiving party is in receipt of certain benefits).
Child Maintenance | What we do
As a result of the above, we are often needed in most cases to help negotiate and establish the level of maintenance. We also draft consent orders where the matter is agreed or issue court proceedings where the matter is not agreed.
Our Family Law Team is experienced and deals frequently with maintenance matters. We are here to help you.
