Maintenance – Increasing/Reducing Maintenance

This section deals with getting an increase or decrease in child maintenance or defending a plea for either of these. A key notion is whether there has been a substantial change in circumstances. Another important issue dealt with is a child's entitlement to file his/her own independent maintenance plea – irrespective of what his/her parents agreed.

The issue of a wife's right to increased child maintenance where she is forced to give up work e.g. because of a sick child is also dealt with here.
