Financial Matters

Children’s financial care is generally dealt with under the administrative child support system, but can in some situations be the subject of litigation in the courts.

It is also possible for parties who are involved in children’s care to make legally binding agreements that deal with the financial arrangements for the children in their care; these are known as child support agreements. We are able to assist you in matters relating to both administrative child support issues, child support agreements and litigation regarding children's financial care.
