Child Maintenance Arrangements
This information is for single parents in Scotland who would like to arrange child maintenance payments.
Both parents are legally responsible for the financial costs of bringing up their children even if they do not live together as a couple. The amount due for each child will depend on who they live with and how many nights they spend with their other parent, as well as their other parent’s finances.
