Christmas and New Year 2014 Advice Line NOW Open
Durham Legal Services has been helping parents to resolve their child maintenance issues and recover compensation since 1995. With 70% of current Child Maintenance Cases containing major errors the likelihood is you are using our website because you and your family are victims of this appalling legislation and the maladministration it causes.
Why use Durham Legal Services? Simple, we are experts in Child Support Legislation and deal with each of our clients in an individual way. We use plain language when dealing with your case and we are not afraid to take the case all the way if forced to do so.
Under Section 2 of the Child Support Act every time a decision is made on a CSA case the welfare of all children involved must be considered. The use of Section 2 makes every CSA case unique and this is the main reason high street solicitors won’t deal with CSA issuest. Our expertise and individual approach means we will.
Yes we do charge a fee for our service but you are getting Qualified Legal Advice which is covered by our guarantee. It’s not general advice like you find on the internet covered with a disclaimer. We don’t use disclaimers with our advice because we know it is correct. And whilst we are talking about fees, where we can we will always offer you and your family a discount.
Please use the links below to have a look around our website and in particular the blog page where you will find up to date information about all three child support systems. And please don’t forget if you can’t find the answer or advice you looking we invite you to email us your legal query and we see what we can do.
Zara and Peter Wood “I am the partner of a NRP and together my partner and I have been fighting the CSA for years. Our MP told us our case was very complicated and suggested we contact Durham Legal Services. After 4 months all our issues were resolved”.

Mark Harris “When the CSA assessed me they used the wrong income figure. Having contacted them on a number of occasions they refused to change it so I appealed. It is very easy to think well I will just turn up and tell it the way it is and things should be fine, it wasn’t. The hearing was adjourned and I had a list as long as your arm of information I needed to supply. I realised I needed help and instructed Durham Legal Services. They prepared all the documents for me and came along on the day. I won my appeal and the CSA were told to use the right income”.

Child Maintenance and Shared Care
The CSA is changing the rules about shared care because under the new Child Maintenance Service the Government recognises that 50:50 shared care is good for the children and should be acknowledged. With the right approach and evidence, any liability could be removed completely.
