Expert Legal Advice On All Child Support CSA And Child Maintenance CMS Cases

At Durham Legal, our reputation is built upon legal excellence, exemplary success rates and unrivalled client care. We are one of the UK's leading Child Maintenance Service legal practitioners.

You can put a price on quality.

Quality and a professional approach really matter in all areas of law and you should expect and receive the highest standards of client service to give you the best chance of a successful outcome.  We deal only with child maintenance work and based on your information, we assess your case to make sure your query is something we can help with before you are asked to pay anything.

Legal experience really does matter.

The DLS legal team is lead by Michael Smith LLB, who has 25 years experience working with both the Child Support Upper Tribunal and Child Support First Tier Tribunal.

What and who we deal with:

CMS Tribunal Representations All Child Maintenance Tribunals adopt an inquisitorial approach during a hearing when trying to find the facts.  This can easily result in you not presenting your case correctly and ending up with a bad decision which can last the lifetime of your child maintenance case.  (please click on the link to find out more)  

Paying Parent (NRP) Over the years we have represented thousands of parents who just want to pay the correct maintenance payments based on their actual circumstances, we can help you do this. (please click the link for more details) 

Receiving Parent (PWC) Like life in general there are people out there who believe they can beat the system or the rules don't apply to them. We make the rules apply to them. (please click the link for more details)

CMS Arrears The biggest problem facing any parent who is either paying or receiving child maintenance is arrears. If your case has arrears it can only mean one thing: an old or current assessment that has been in place has not been paid.  There are hundreds of reasons why this may have happened and it would be wrong to assume that the paying parent has simply not paid. From our own statistics we are aware that 78% of arrears demands by the CMS are incorrect and therefore we offer a full arrears investigation service. (please click the link for more details)
