Welcome to Durham Legal Services UK
The simple reality is if you have a CSA problem you need professional help - it’s a false economy not to get it. Child Support law is very complex and can have a dramatic effect on family life, especially if the problems are not dealt with properly. An unresolved Child Support problem can affect you, your family and your health for years, so contact us today and get the right professional advice.
With the existance of three Child Maintenance systems it is no wonder that parents find it very hard to understand which rules or regulations apply to them. This has lead to a lot of misinformation on the internet which in turn has cost parents and their children dearly. Getting advice from an anti - CSA advice forum which often involves advice to make a written complaint to the CSA, getting your MP involved or requesting your data file will not make the problem go away.
Our Senior Partner Mike Smith LLB has specialised in the field of Child Support for the last 21 years, and has a real passion for shaping Child Maintenance legislation. He was heavily involved with the Upper Tribunal decision GR vs CMEC 2011 UKUT 101 AAC which now gives us the legal definition of person with care. This has become very relevant in light of the new legislation where no maintenance becomes payable when 50/50 shared care is in existance.
Mike is a great believer in promoting collaboration and the reduction of conflict in all child maintenance matters and is head of the design team which built the National Accredited HSSF kitemark new CSA Calculator Footprint Aftercare.
