Government promises more action on child maintenance arrears

The Government has pledged more intensive action against irresponsible parents who have failed to support their children after separation.


The promise comes as the CSA Quarterly Summary of Statistics for January to March 2012 shows that 8% of cases with arrears owe between £5,000 and £10,000, 5.5% owe £10,000 to £20,000, 3.3% owe £20,000 to £50,000 and 0.5% owe over £50,000. The figures exclude the 104,000 cases managed off the main computer systems.

The total number of Deduction Orders authorised (both lump sum and regular orders) jumped from 335 in 2009-10 to 1,055 in April 2011 - February 2012. Driving disqualifications for refusal to pay have increased from 5 in 2008-2009 to 40 in April 2011 – February 2012.
