Both parents listed on the birth certificate are financially responsible for their minor children – that’s the law. When a relationship comes to an end, the wellbeing and best interests of your children is of primary concern and it is necessary to discuss with your former spouse/partner how you both would contribute to your children’s welfare.
Over the last years, child support and alimony disputes have become less common in courts. Parents do prefer to discuss these matters with legal professionals to draft a settlement agreement instead of a court session. This agreement should be verified by a notary public.
