child support and maintenance payments


Child Support and Maintenance Payments

Following the end of a relationship or marriage, child support (or child maintenance) paid is an ongoing and periodic payment made by a parent to the financial well-being of the child or children.

In most cases, child support is paid by a parent or the partner of the parent, but in some cases it may be payable where no relationship with the child has previously existed.

Child support is most often paid by the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent, for the purpose of ensuring financial support for the child. The amount of the payment is determined by various factors including the combined incomes of the parents, the care arrangements and the age of the child or children.
