Child Arrangements

At Ansham White Solicitors, our Lawyers and Solicitors understand the importance of child maintenance at the outset and are able to provide you with our professional advice on the options available to you. These include:

  • Entering into a family-based agreement (although not legally binding).
  • Obtain an assessment for child maintenance; however, you must be inside the UK to apply.

Agreeing and making child maintenance arrangements is one of the most significant aspects of a divorce or separation. Disputes regularly arise in this area which can cause a lot of stress and can drag on for a prolonged period. To ensure that you and your child have the right arrangements for you, it is worthwhile seeking advice from our experienced family solicitors.

Where you are unable to implement a maintenance agreement with a former partner, either through mediation or outside of it, then you may have to obtain a consent order. The repercussions of a poorly drafted consent order can be huge and therefore we strongly advise going through a legal representative. Our team at Ansham White Solicitors will be able to assist you with this.

The amount of child maintenance that an individual will receive is dependant on a wide range of factors. Where you are looking to reach an amicable agreement with a former partner outside of legal proceedings and would like initial advice on how certain factors could affect the agreement, it will be helpful to discuss this with one of our legal professionals in an initial consultation.

At Ansham White Solicitors, we pride ourselves on our customer focused approach. The founding Director, Shamim Ibrahim has 20+ years of experience in dealing with family law matters. Throughout this time, she has built up and trained a team of individuals whom maintain her high quality standard of work to ensue that our clients receive professional yet personable advice throughout their matter.

Please call us today to arrange an initial fixed fee consultation, our family team will be more than happy to help. We have offices based in North Harrow which has nearby parking and good transport links. If you are calling from overseas or are unable to attend our office, we are able to conduct a video consultation via either Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
