Support and Maintenance
Support and maintenance claims can arise in many different situations. They apply not only between parents and children but also in relation to grandparents, adult children and grandchildren. In each case the statutory rights and the applicable law need to be checked exactly.
Before reaching any agreement in relation to support and maintenance it is always advisable to obtain detailed legal advice so as not to give any of your potential right and claims. And even in the event that any support and maintenance orders have been made in the past or in other countries, such orders or court judgements are always subject to review if legal arguments can be identified. In this regard, we always seek to support our clients where circumstances have changed or developed from the time of the original court decision or agreement.
