Welcome to Durham Legal Services, the UK's leading independent provider of Child Maintenance Service Advice and Child Support Agency Advice. We have represented thousands of paying and receiving parents throughout the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland with all manner of child maintenance service problems.

The volume and variety of our child support cases make us unique among other organisations dealing with this area of law. We use our expertise to fast track cases through the Child Maintenance Service system. This means the correct amount of maintenance or arrears is in payment at the earliest opportunity. If you have a Child Maintenance Service CMS problem WE CAN HELP.  

We believe legal advice about Child Maintenance is so important it can only be properly given when all of the facts are known and that’s why we offer a one-to-one personal, confidential telephone advice service.

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.

Get Your Full Child Maintenance Service Assessment Health Check

If your case has now moved over from either the 1993 or 2003 system, and you have seen a huge increase or decrease in payments, the likelihood is that all of the correct information needed to make the proper assessment has not been picked up by the Child Maintenance Service via HMRC income records. Speak to us about a full case assessment check.

Child Maintenance Service Shared Care

The Child Maintenance Service 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.

Do you feel your Child Maintenance Service Arrears or Child Support Arrears are unfair?

Are your arrears due to the delay the CSA or CMS have taken in calculating your liability. Have they made an assessment and you've not been notified. If you owe arrears and you think they are unfair, along with the charges please get in touch.
