Child Maintenance Service 50/50 Day to Day Care under Regulation 50

Shared Care & Day to Day Care - Exceptional representation from the UK's leading experts in Child Maintenance Law.

The concept of 50/50 Day to Day Care was introduced under the 2012 Child Maintenance Legislation. Day to Day care is different from 50/50 shared care. This is where many parents go wrong when asking the CMS to consider care aarrangments.  The original concept was designed for parents who wanted to make a family-based agreement away from the CMS, so in practise parents who enjoy 50/50 Day to Day Care should not even have a CMS case.  

Those parents who use the CMS and believe they have 50/50 Day to Day care usually have to go through the appeals process to get the CMS to implement the right decision. This is because the CMS take a very simplistic approach and consider Child Benefit, Doctor/Dentist registration as key factors.                                        

Getting the right team on your side. 

To be successful with a 50/50 day to day care case which is contested by the other parent will be very difficult without representation. At appeal, the Tribunal will look at a number of things such as mental attitude towards the child; decisions about the child's health and welfare; decision-making about the child; decisions about the necessities of life; decisions about control and protection, all of these areas are very complex and using our experience of what is asked at Tribunal hearings on these cases, we have developed our own successful system of helping to put the right evidence forward.
