When a child lives primarily with one parent, the other parent is responsible for making payments to assist in the child’s care. This being said, both parents have a duty to support their child according to their respective means, irrespective of whether the child is adopted, or born in or out of marriage.
Every child is entitled to reasonable maintenance for clothing, accommodation, education, medical care and recreation. ‘Reasonable’ maintenance is determined by the family’s standard of living and various other factors.
We can help make sure your children get the financial support they are entitled to.
