Training session on the new child maintenance system

As the new system for child maintenance (CS3) comes into use for many families, FNF Scotland is holding a training session in Edinburgh on Tuesday 17th January from 7-9pm.

John Fotheringham, a Scottish family lawyer who is very experienced in child support issues, will cover the structure of the CS3 system and how it differs from the previous scheme that was run by the Child Support Agency.  He will also talk about how variations and shared care are dealt with in the new scheme and how aliment interfaces with child support, all mainly from the viewpoint of the person who pays maintenance.

Described in one legal guide as a "guru for child support cases", John once claimed that his best experience as a lawyer was "Winning three child support cases in a single day — two of them at the Tribunal and the third one by making the CSA run away."

Admission is free, but please book a place using this link.
