A public consultation about the introduction of new powers to speed up strong enforcement action and other reforms to make the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) fairer, is now opened.
Outline of proposed change:
- Government is introducing long-term changes to make the system fairer for children and parents
- Enforcement process is to be made almost four times faster and non-compliance will be detected and dealt with more quickly
- Application fee will be removed to ensure the service is accessible to all
