The Child Maintenance eBook
Understanding child maintenance and the responsibilities it entails is paramount for both parents. Maintenance is not just a financial obligation; it's a reflection of the continuous commitment of a parent towards the well-being and upbringing of their child.
A parent’s duty of support towards his/her child remains steadfast, irrespective of life's changing circumstances. For instance, if a parent decides to remarry, this new chapter in their life does not alter their duty to provide for their child. Additionally, stepparents, while they might play a significant role in the child's life, are not legally bound to extend financial support to their stepchildren.
Children, irrespective of the sequence of their birth or the marital status during their birth, stand equal when it comes to their right to maintenance. A child from a first marriage holds no precedence over a child from a subsequent marriage. Every child's right to support is unequivocal.
Parental rights and responsibilities also encompass regular contact with the child. However, it's crucial to note that issues related to contact are separate from maintenance obligations. If a parent is denied contact with their child, it doesn't absolve them from their duty to provide financial support. The child's welfare and rights remain central, regardless of disagreements or disputes between parents.
