Paternity order: Armstrong v Jardine: making of payments: 1851
« on: Monday 06 August 18 01:48 BST (UK) »
The Paternity order is dated 1851 in the parish of Canonbie and outlines the regular payments to be made until the illegitimate child reaches 7 years of age.

My question is how would the payments be made.  Would the father make the payments to the parish and then the mother have to front up to the parish officials?

In other words, would the father have any further contact with the mother in order to hand over the money?  Thank you, Gazania

Hi

In the example below, the father seems to be ordered to pay to the pursuer's solicitor:

Added - it should lay down the method of payment in the court record.

Thank you, Gadget

I shall read the order more closely and try to make sense of the wording.

My apologies for my tardy reply - had a few days visiting with my son.  Gazania
