Financial provision for a child

The financial costs of a child can encompass a range of complex legal, medical and practical issues under English law from pre-conception through to raising a child, which include:

  • Fertility treatment and assisted conception legal and medical costs (e.g. if you have experienced medical negligence and become infertile or unable to carry a pregnancy).
  • Modern family building legal costs associated with understanding and managing complex and evolving fertility and family law issues (e.g. co-parenting, known donation, surrogacy, complex personal situation, blended family dynamics, posthumous conception).
  • Paternity/legal parentage dispute concerning costs of a child’s upbringing (e.g. maintenance, home, education etc).
