My name is Lee, and I run the website - here's how my site can help you!

I was a single parent for six years before getting remarried, and I learned how to live contentedly with little materially. Even though I’m no longer single, I’m still extremely frugal!

How can I help you with child maintenance?


The UK’s Child Maintenance Service is failing millions of children and their parents. I know because I’m one of those parents.

My fight to receive child maintenance from an ex-husband who refused to pay anything started over 10 years ago, and I’ve documented my efforts so as to help other parents who are going through the same thing.

Keep up to date with my journey through my Child Maintenance Help newsletter, and you’ll receive my Child Maintenance Planner printable. I use this to help me organise my case, reduce stress and stay focused. After developing this, I received my first maintenance payment of over £2000!
