The Commissioner for the Maintenance of Parents consults with parents and children to assist them to reach an agreement by conciliation

The Maintenance of Parents Act

Families are the basic unit of society and the first line of support for its members.

 

The Maintenance of Parents Act (Chapter 167B) [the Act] allows parent/s, who are unable to maintain themselves, to apply to the Tribunal for the Maintenance of Parents [‘the Tribunal’] for maintenance from their child/children. This is a legal process.

 

The Act also provides for a Commissioner for the Maintenance of Parents (the Commissioner) to consult with parent/s and child/children to assist them to reach an agreement by conciliation and to represent them, if necessary, in their claim against their child/children.

 

All new claims must first be referred to the Commissioner for conciliation. This is to facilitate amicable resolution of disputes without the need for an application to the Tribunal.
