Child maintenance help.
We all need a bit of help when it comes to the UK’s child maintenance system. This is even more true when one parent won’t fulfil their financial responsibilities to their children, as is often the case.
My child maintenance story.
Writing about my own experiences with child maintenance hasn’t always been easy. It’s difficult because of needing to maintain a level of confidentiality for all parties, but I find it essential, as non-payment of child support is something that should be eradicated from our society.
>I feel the need to help others with my experiences, as I’ve been helped in the past by other writers.
Here are my posts about maintenance and my child maintenance story:
Child Maintenance: A New Compliance and Arrears Strategy – Public Consultation – an introduction to the government’s public consultation on enforcing child maintenance payments and collection of arrears published 14th December 2017 and closing 8th February 2018.
Get Your Free Child Maintenance Planner – an introduction to the organisation system I have developed to make the child maintenance process less stressful.
Everything I Learned From My Mother (About Money) – amongst other things, I talk about my mother’s example of providing as a single parent.
Why write about child maintenance?
My story, of raising my son without financial support from his father, is heartbreakingly commonplace. Somehow, though, we’ve become immune to it. We just don’t want to talk about it. I think I know why… and I’m going to talk about the reasons, and keep talking about the problems too.
Why? Not because I think I can change the world or even this country, but because I know that by keeping quiet, the only thing that’s guaranteed is that nothing will change. Follow my story as I see how much I can change.
