  • DWP - Child Maintenance Consultation

    Created: 20/05/2024
    News/Events Category: Consultations
    This item will show under the following categories: Employability  

    Through a new consultation paper, DWP aims to improve the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) so more children get the financial support they are due. This includes ending the option of direct payments between parents through the CMS, meaning if parents do not pay it will be detected and enforcement action can be taken sooner.   

    It also asks what further support the CMS can provide to help separated parents make family-based arrangements, which are agreed by parents, without state intervention, and how the CMS can better support victims and survivors of domestic abuse.

    The closing date is Wednesday 31 July 2024.
