How much will it cost?
We appreciate how child maintenance decisions can lead to financial hardship, but as we receive no Government funding, we cannot operate for free. We offer a range of services to suit all budgets including;.
Telephone Support: £30 ( for 1 month)
Through our dedicated helpline, our experienced consultants will listen to your concerns and talk through your case details. They will discuss with you any aspects that may require further investigation, and will explain what steps are necessary to take those matters forward. If the law has been applied correctly, our team will provide clear detailed explanations to make sense of it all. Our helpline is available 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday. We also have Livechat facility for evening or weekends appointments. Click Here to Join Today
Paperwork Support: from £100
Have letters from CMS caused confusion? Or not answered your complaint? Do you have an appeal or variation form that needs completing? If so, then our Paperwork Support service is for you!
As many child support decisions are subject to strict time frames for any dispute raised, it is important to make sense of letters and what action you need to take when those letters arrive. Our consultants will study your relevant documents*, and will arrange a mutually convenient time to discuss what actions are necessary to put the case in order or how to submit an application to HM Courts and Tribunals.
*Limitations may apply
Personal Consultation: from £100 (2hr)
If you prefer to speak to someone face to face, that's no problem. We offer a 2 hour personal consultation which takes place at our offices in the West Midlands. The consultation will allow you to discuss your case in detail with one of our team, and a bespoke action plan will be discussed.
This is a popular service - and we rarely have short notice appointments available. If you wish to book an appointment, please contact us as soon as possible.
Full Representation : £200 + £50pm
Dealing with CMS and its complex rules can be challenging, so why not let the experts take over!
Our Full Representation Service involves one of our experienced team taking over your case, and will deal with CSA/CMS directly on your behalf. Full Representation removes the stress and anxiety of dealing with CMS, and also ensures that all decision are made according to their own legislation.
Parents often report an “immense relief” after handing their case over to NACSA.
Tribunal Support: from £200 + £50pm
Lodging an application to HM Courts and Tribunal Service is a legal process and subject to strict time frames. To achieve the best outcome at appeal you need a sound knowledge of the law, good case preparation and full engagement with the proceedings.
Our team offers a range of support and guidance through a Child Support Appeal depending on your requirements and budgets. Contact our office for more details.
Assessment Checks: from £15
There is a free online Child Maintenance calculator available on the CMOptions website ... BUT, this will only provide you with a basic calculation and will not consider any increase or decrease that may be due under the variations scheme. We offer an assessment check that will take into account any potential changes through the variation scheme.
Assessment checks are also useful if your circumstances are likely to change and you want to consider the impact it may have on your maintenance payments.
Note: From 2019, cases managed under the old 'Child Support Agency' will be few and far between, and those calculations will be rare, but we can still offer this service for CS1 and CS2 calculations if required.
