Hi, thank you for your question. Firstly, the children have a right to a relationship with him which can only be reasonably restricted if there are child protection concerns. Him losing his job is not in itself a child protection concern, however if he was no longer able to meet their needs then this may be raised as a concern. Furthermore, the mother cannot stop contact between them due to his finances and not being able to contribute the same amount of child maintenance.
In relation to the amount please confirm how this amount was reached? Was it through direct agreement between them or are the CSA/Child Maintenance Service involved?
