Finances and Legal Matters


This page provides some useful guidance about Child Maintenance options from the Child Maintenance Options website, and information from the Legal Ombudsman


If you’re trying to agree on an amount for your family-based arrangement, the Child Maintenance calculator can give you an indication of the amount that you could expect to pay or receive.

The calculation is based on the rules that the statutory child maintenance service currently use, so you can also use it if you’re making an arrangement through the statutory service or the courts.
