We also provide the added security and peaceof mind of maintenance insurance and, all for less than the cost of maintenance securedthrough the CMS. We do all this with our Footprint online calculator,mediation and financial support teams working
together to help and support separated couplesand their children. Footprint have partnered with Compass ResolutionLtd to offer a mediation service to support parents who find themselves unable to communicatebut still wishing to reach their own agreements. This also often involves sorting out childarrangements and reaching financial agreements concerning the division of assets and pensions,thus avoiding court and the child maintenance service.
