If you have a child and would like to receive government aid, then contact the HMRC on their phone number 0345 300 3900 to learn more about the Child Tax Credit.
Having a child is a life-changing and long-term commitment that you can’t get out of. You can easily divorce your spouse and even get your marriage annulled but you can’t end your relationship with your child. Sure, children can get emancipated in certain circumstances but even then, the relationship between the parent and the child can’t be erased – it’s permanent. It’s this permanence that makes it essential for the government to offer Child Tax Credits.
As mentioned, it’s impossible to flee the responsibilities attached to having children. First of all when you have children, even when you’re not living with them, you are responsible for providing for their needs. This means that wherever you are you still need to give child your support and financial assistance.
Whether your family unit is intact or not, parents are supposed to use a proportion of their pay cheque to pay for anything that the child may require. This means that as long as your child is a dependant, you have to sacrifice financially. You have to forego getting your ultimate dream car because you still need to pay for your child’s uniform, stationary, trips and university tuition.
