Child Support

Issues relating to child support can create difficulties for many people after the breakdown of their relationship.

In most cases, child support will be determined by the Child Support Agency (CSA) upon a party lodging an application.

People can choose to reach an agreement on the matter of child support privately. Such an agreement can give you greater flexibility in the amount of the payments, the frequency of the payments and whether payments are made directly towards expenses that benefit the child.

At Cullen Macleod we can advise you on your basic legal obligations and guide you on the amount you should be paying. We can also assist you with managing the process through the CSA, or assist in the drafting of a private child support agreement.
