Financial support for children after divorce Coming to an agreement about supporting any children after a divorce is essential and may not be easy to arrange. However, sound financial arrangements must be in place to ensure that children do not lose out when a couple get divorced.
Find an expert Divorce Solicitor:
Most divorcing couples will need a solicitor to take them through the whole process from the beginning to the granting of the Decree Absolute which finalises the divorce. We can put you in touch with a local expert divorce solicitor who you could talk to about your situation. This would be free and at no obligation.
