Going through separation or divorce is often a very emotive time, made even more sensitive when children are involved and child maintenance needs to be addressed. Child maintenance is the financial responsibility that both parents owe to their children, ensuring their wellbeing and upbringing, even after a separation or divorce. It is paid when one of the parents does not live with the child and is money to help pay for a child’s everyday living costs. At Macnabs, we understand the complexities surrounding child maintenance and want to provide insight on this topic, especially in light of recent high-profile cases, like that of former Celtic boss Neil Lennon.

It was well publicised when Ant McPartlin found himself in court with his ex over the custody of their adorable Labrador, shining a spotlight on the complexities of pet ownership in divorce proceedings.

But as well as considering who will put the bins out every week, if you are one of the 3.6 million people cohabiting in the UK (i.e. living with your partner but not married to them), then it is important you think about the future and consider what could happen to you in the event of a breakup.

Most people think of divorce like they do in the movies where there are two parties fighting like cat and dog, each vowing to “screw the other over”. In reality, it’s seldom like this. What’s more common is two people who no longer want the same things in life. Two people who have built up some bitterness towards the other over the past who-knows-how-long. Two people who want a resolution but just don’t know how to get there.
