Child Maintenance during COVID-19

Payment of Child Maintenance during this COVID-19 pandemic is of great concern to a number of families, as a result of people:

  • Losing their jobs
  • Receiving less income having been furloughed
  • Receiving statutory sick pay
  • Receiving no income
  • Families changing their arrangements relating to the care of their children
  • Bereavement

The Child Maintenance Service continues to provide assistance to families who are in dispute over the payment of Child Maintenance, where parents cannot reach arrangements themselves.

We are aware that many families, would rather establish arrangements together, this however, is not always easy.

At Midlands Dove Mediation we are able to provide a safe, confidential remote venue for separated parents to communicate and discuss the welfare and arrangements for the payment of child maintenance for their children, with the support of independent and impartial Solicitor Mediators.

If you wish to have information about our services, us using remote video meetings, please do not hesitate to contact us at and our experienced coordinators will contact you.

Going to mediation really helped my situation and sorted things out, I believe in a much quicker and easier way. The mediators I dealt with were very helpful in the sense of giving us all the information and making sure we understood clearly before making any decisions by ourselves
