Child Maintenance

Comment 5th July 2010

As someone who has been through divorce, with a young child involved, I was dismayed that solicitors adopt an approach that assumes that the mother is the child's first choice for residency. Unless you wish (as the father) to go through a lengthly and costly court process the father generally ends up having the child every weekend and one night during the week (3 nights out of seven). The mother will not allow the child to stay at the father's home more than three nights as it will give up her right to receive child maintenance money.

Why does this matter?

I believe the laws on child maintenance were set at a time that does not reflect what happens in 2010. The CSA calculations need to reflect fairness.
