CSA Advice - Need help with your CSA problem? We represent parents from all over the UK so call us now

Child Support legislation is the most complex area of Family Law in the United Kingdom.  With three different schemes and three different sets of rules which often cross over each scheme, it is no wonder that many family solicitors will not deal with, or struggle to deal with, CSA cases.  A simple example of the complexity is when a client asks to have their payment looked at again; is it a change of circumstances, supersession, a revision or a mandatory reconsideration?   Under Child Support law these stages all address the same thing.

The difficult nature of Child Support legislation also explains why the caseworkers dealing with complex cases often apply wrong legislation – and if they apply the wrong legislation, what realistic chance have you got, as their client, when it comes to understanding where it all went wrong. 

We not only understand but we can also help put it right.   That’s why we would strongly recommend if you have a CSA problem you should seek our advice in the first instance just to clarify your CSA problem and that you are asking the CSA to look at the right thing.

Here at Durham Legal Services we have been at the forefront of child support advice since the creation of the Child Support Agency.   Because of our skills in representing people at appeal Tribunals we have helped to clarify some fundamental areas of the legislation by taking actual case law to the Upper Tribunal which then has gone on to become legal precedent. 

This is why we believe we have the right to claim we are the UK’s leading Child Support experts.  Don't just take our word for it. The best way to explain the importance of seeking our professional advice is to let you read the experience of our clients.

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.
