The Child Maintenance eBook
A parent’s duty of support towards his/her child is not affected in any way by a remarriage and a stepparent is also under no obligation to support a stepchild.
Similarly, a child from a first marriage does not have priority over a child from a second marriage when it comes to maintenance obligations.
The refusal to allow a parent contact does not entitle that parent to stop paying maintenance.
