Child Maintenance Written Answer, 18/12/13 [E/NI/S/W]
Written Answer given in the House of Commons on 18 December 2013 in response to Dame Anne Begg's (Lab) question asking the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if he will take steps to ensure that, following the planned process of Child Support Agency (CSA) arrears validation that will accompany the case closure programme, the Child Maintenance Service will give the same priority to the active recovery of any CSA arrears which a parent with care of a dependent child wishes to have collected, regardless of whether a 20 application fee has been paid to the Child Maintenance Service in respect of continuing maintenance for the child; and what guidance will be given to Child Maintenance Service officials in respect of Child Support Agency cases closed within Segment 2 of his Department's case closure programme because of nil compliance, where a parent with care who applies to use the new Child Maintenance Service asks to use the statutory collection service straight away, on the grounds that the non-resident parent's nil payment record means they are unlikely to pay the new maintenance liability in accordance with the calculation if left to do so via a voluntary Direct Pay arrangement.
