FAQ About Family Law
What factors does the court consider when determining a maintenance order for a child’s maintenance?
The court will always act in the best interest of the child. The duty to support the child financially falls on both parents of the child. The court will consider the respective financial means of each parent and apportion the obligation to support the child according to the means of each parent.
Do I still have to pay maintenance for my child even if my ex-partner remarries?
The obligation to support your child does not fall away if your ex-partner remarries and you will still have to provide for your child’s maintenance needs until your child is self-supporting.
I don’t earn as much money as I used to earn, and I can no longer afford the maintenance I have been ordered to pay. Can a maintenance order be changed?
It is possible to apply to the Court to vary the original maintenance order. The Court will investigate the financial situation of the parents of the child and may vary the order if the financial situation of the parents have changed substantially since the granting of the original maintenance order.
I want a divorce, but I am uncertain about the legal costs involved. How can I be sure that I can afford legal representation?
When family lawyers charge hourly rates in divorce cases, the cost of a divorce can quickly become prohibitive. Furthermore, it is almost impossible for the client to budget for legal costs as the case progresses.
Our family lawyers offer capped fees for divorce cases. In other words, once we have determined the complexity of your case, we offer a fixed amount for our legal fees which will give you the certainty and peace of mind you need.
