Abstract

All books in this flagship series contain carefully selected substantial extracts from key cases, legislation, and academic debate, providing able students with a stand-alone resource. This chapter, which discusses financial provision for children who live apart from one or both parents, whether in a single-parent family, step-family, or with other carers, begins with a brief history of financial provision for children. It then discusses the current law on child support; court-based provision; ‘family-based arrangements’ and other private ordering; and policy questions relating to the financial support of children.
