Financial Provision and Property Orders for Children

  • Kate Standley
Part of the Macmillan Law Masters book series


All parents, whether married or unmarried and with or without parental responsibility, have a duty to care for their children, and this includes the provision of maintenance. This maintenance obligation continues even when parental relationships break down. The right of children to be maintained and the duty of parents to provide it are also recognised in art. 27 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989.
