Maintenance

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 the matter is dealt with partly by the Department of Health and Social Care (if the receiving party is in receipt of certain benefits).

However, advocates are often needed in most cases to help negotiate and establish the level of maintenance, to draft consent orders where the matter is agreed or to 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.

If you need to talk to someone around maintenance for your children then take the first step and email familyteam@mannbenham.com or call us on 01624 639350 to arrange your free initial half hour consultation with us today over the telephone or video.
