delete child record

I want to create a process that will behave as the master detail relationship.
I cannot use the master detail relationship though due to operational reasons.
I have the Maintenance_Fees__c object which automatically creates a Contract_Renewal__c record. In the Contract_Renewal__c I have created a lookup field towards the Maintenance_Fees__c.
So what I need is whenever a maintenance fee is deleted, if there is a contract renewal record which is connected to this maintenance fee, then this record should also be deleted.
