We are Durham Legal Services, the UK's leading legal experts for Child Maintenance Service Legislation, offering expert advice and representation on all areas of Child Support and the legislation which governs it.
For over 20 years, we have represented both paying and receiving parents all over the UK and helped them resolve their child maintenance problems either directly with the CMS, the First-tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal.
Our approach to child maintenance is straightforward and aimed at achieving a fair and correct child maintenance assessment. Our advice is qualified legal advice although not everyone appreciates that what you want to hear and what you need to hear can be two different things. However, we will always be honest in our assessment of your case and we don't have any agenda other than a fair and correct assessment, unlike those with their roots in anti-CSA/CMS campaigns.
What and who we deal with:
CMS Tribunal Representation appeals advice and representation, mandatory reconsideration, First-tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal
Paying Parent (NRP) correction of unaffordable or unfair assessment, shared care problems, wrong income being used
Receiving Parent (PWC) income not being disclosed, financial or fraud investigation
CMS or CSA Arrears Full investigation into old CSA arrears transfer
