Enforcement of CSA/CMS Payments

By: Lorna Elliott LLB (hons), Barrister - Updated: 19 Sep 2017 |
 
Csa Maintenance Payments Arrears Child

Once the CSA/CMS has made a calculation for child maintenance, it has discretion to stipulate the method by which payments are made, to whom, when and how much should be paid towards any arrears. Notifications of any CSA/CMS decisions relating to payments must be made in writing, and should allow the non-resident parent as well as the person with care to make representations about them.

Payments to the CSA/CMS

In the majority of cases, the CSA/CMS prefer payments to be made directly from the non-resident parent to the person with care – save for when the person with care is on either Income Support or Job Seeker’s Allowance. In this situation, payments are made using ‘the collection service.’ In other cases (i.e. where the person with care is not on benefits) the collection service can be used if one or both of the parties request it. If there are problems with payments, it is possible to request the intervention of the collection service later on.

Under the new rules for child maintenance calculations, if a non-resident parent is on benefits Jobcentre Plus may make deductions at source of flat rate payments, at the request of the CSA/CMS.

When Payments Fall into Arrears

The CSA/CMS only intervenes in cases where payments have fallen into arrears if the collections service is being used. However, it is important to note that by the time the first calculation is made there are always arrears to be paid (because the calculation isn’t made until after the date when payments are due).

When a calculation is first made, the CSA/CMS will telephone the non-resident parent and tell them how the payments should be made, including the arrears. It is during this conversation that the non-resident parent should negotiate if they feel that they are not satisfied with the proposed schedule: this may be particularly pertinent given that the CSA/CMS always request that the initial arrears are cleared by way of a lump sum. (Any voluntary payments that have been made after the effective date can be deducted from the initial arrears.) The arrears are also notified in writing. If they are not paid within seven days of the written notification, the non-resident parent could face fines and enforcement action.

Enforcement Action

If a payment that is due directly to the person with care is missed, they must inform the CSA/CMS so that they can make enquiries as to why the payment has been missed. If a payment that is due to be paid via the agency is missed, the CSA/CMS will follow this up of its own volition. In other cases, a person with care who is on certain benefits may request an increase based on the fact that child maintenance has not been paid.

In these circumstances the CSA/CMS will telephone the non-resident parent to find out whether there is a problem (e.g. a change in circumstances.) If the non-resident parent anticipates that they may find themselves in difficulty over payments, such as an impending redundancy, they should contact the agency in good time to negotiate a reduction. There may be a suspension of arrears temporarily if the non-resident parent is ill, unemployed or incarcerated.

Deductions From Earnings

A Deduction from Earnings Order (DEO) is where payments are deducted from the non-resident parent’s earnings and paid to the CSA/CMS. Voluntary DEOs are available if the non-resident parent requests it: however if they persistently default, fail to keep to arrears arrangements and do not respond to enquiries, a DEO may be imposed. However it is possible to appeal a DEO to a magistrates’ court within 28 days of its imposition, either on the basis that it is defective or that the payments being made to the non-resident parent do not qualify as ‘earnings.’

If a DEO is inappropriate for whatever reason the CSA/CMS can apply to the magistrates court for a liability order. The CSA/CMS has to provide the non-resident parent with 7 days written notice of their intention to apply for this order. Once granted, the CSA can arrange for a county court to enter the order into its register like a judgment debt. This means that the CSA/CMS can pursue a charging order against land, property or other assets, a third party debt order against bank accounts or debts owed to the non-resident parent by a third party.

Disqualification From Driving and Imprisonment

In extreme circumstances, the CSA/CMS may take action to disqualify a non-resident parent from driving and can fix a term of imprisonment (up to six weeks) that is usually postponed to enable regular payments to be made.

What happens if you don't want the child maintenance service to collect money anymore? I cant be bothered with the hassle, four years and I haven't had a penny despite attachment of earnings because he just changes his job every time this happens, will they still get the arrears from him up until the date I cancel or will the whole lot be written off.

Hi. I am in URGENT need of help! I've been with the new CMS for 20 or so months now and have been paying direct payments, last year ended as a 0 balance, I got my new notice to pay 1533.00 over 12 months which equates to 127. 75, which I have paid without missing any. In June I got a letter stating I was in arrears by 700 odd pounds and that my payments will now go up to 259 or something per month, needless to say I called and sent in my bank statements, and carried on paying the 127 odd a month, then I get another letter saying I'm going onto the payment method of them taking it out of my wages and now I have to pay 327.00 , I have called and called sent statements in and every person I call says they will sort it out, they didn't even put my statements on the system! Then they said they can't change the payments due, I stated to the last person I called to get his calculator out and divide the 1533.00 by 12 months and for him to tell me how much I should be paying, he agreed with me, I am doing nothing wrong. Today I received another letter stating they can't change the amount due as they haven't heard from my ex wife, but they have as they sent her the same letter out back in June stating I've got 700 odd arrears before speaking to me about it, so she is expecting 257. A month from June and she's not been getting this amount as I DON'T owe anything , so she callshould and complains and they send me more letters. I have bad anxiety anyway and only earn 800 a month on a good month, they contact her as well as me about arrears I DO NOT ONE, I can't approach her as we have NO contact (another story ) and I can't pay nigh on nearly 400 a month, I can't let them tale it out of my earnings either, I have proof I pay EVERY month and they have the proof too, but won't change anything for me. What can I do?Regards

Hi, CSL, to respond back to you on the 10th August post. The £20 was a debt I agreed to that was related to a credit card with a Baliff that turned up at my mums house where I was staying at the time. He couldn't take anything as it wasn't mine however I gave him wage details and an income and out goings form which amounted to £20 a month he said he would take it back to court and see what happens. Some time had passed and £20 started coming off my wage about the same time CSA wrote to me to say £30 a week was also coming out of my wage. I assumed CSA payments were coming off before I got paid and the £20 showing on my wage slip was the credit card debt I had agreed to pay. skipping 10 years and CMS writing to me to say I was changing to them I called wages to see how it would work with them and I asked about the Debt I was paying off at £20 and they didn't know about any debt and then informed me £20 was actually CSA payments. I called the local courts to find out what happened to the debt and they couldn't trace it and said it's been over 6 years now it would have been taken off my credit report. Which when I checked there was no sign of it. I hope this cleares things up.

Hi My partner has been regularly paying child support to his ex for the last six months direct to her.There was a dispute at the very beginning of 200 pounds as the ex hadn't informed my partner that she would be contacting child maintenance and as such he continued to pay for after school and after care activities which amounted to more than 200.He informed child maintenance and sent them proof to show he had paid the amount and if he had know that she had submitted an application then he would not have paid it- she didn't tell him.Yesterday he received a DEO to take the amount and an extra 200 pounds a month.We called sat to find that he has to wait until Monday to talk to his case worker.We cannot afford the extra 200 and we are unsure why they have gone for a DE order when we have been paying the other parent.Can someone help us with why and what to do next? We have written a letter to the courts as suggested to dispute this.We did not receive any notification to say that they would be doing this until we received the letter to say it was happening

Billy01 - Your Question:
Recently found out CSA have been taking wrong amount from my wage for best part of 10 years. I thought I was paying an old debt off for £20 a month and CSA coming off my wage before I got paid but since CMS have told me they are taking over soon I called wages to find out what they do.Long story short I've found out the debt that was supposed to be coming off never happened and the £20 a month was CSA but it was listed as £20 debt on my wage. I should have been paying £30 a week about £130 a month or so. this has gone on for 10 years despite CSA never contacting me in that time.The only time they wrote to me was this year to say CMS was taking over soon. I've just carried on all these years thinking I was paying the right amounts and left it.Not sure what to do at this point I've found out it's wrong but haven't contact CSA yet not sure if I should leave it to transfer to CMS and wait for them to get in contact?If they take 40% of my wage it will cripple my family I won't be able to buy food, I'll just have enough to cover rent, council tax and possibly the gas and electric bill. my wife is out of work at the min.we can't get tax credits because they overpaid us this year by 6k and when she lost her job last year it put us 25k in debt I'm paying that off at the min but if they take 40% I wont have the money to pay them at all.IS there any help I can get or someone to speak to that might be able to advise what I should do in this situation.

Our Response:
You don't say why the debt wasn't coming off your wages and whose fault you think this was. Much depends upon what CMS say. If you think the situation is unfair then your recourse will be able to appeal or complain, please see link here.

Hi my ex partner is self employed works full time earning £150-200 per day. He also receives all benefits because as far as the council & dwp are aware he's unable to work due to a back problem and depression. He has a 2 bedroom council property and rents out his spare room for an additional £500pm! Yet pays nothing towards his daughter, I can't physically prove he works as he's a builder, plumber, kitchen fitter ect so works in a different location daily. Would csa be able to help with this? As "officially" he doesn't work and hasn't done for years, he has money from customers go to his mums bank account and his outgoings the same way...

Hi Anyone knows if the CSA can be sued for wrongly calculating arrears I supposedly have to pay. I've started paying the arrears but all attempts to get them to review their own calculations has been met with futility. Their calculation is wrong and anyone can see that.This is extremely frustrating and time wasting as I have to keep a job and UNI studies. Any advice will be most appreciated.

Anna-Marie- Your Question:
I have been using Child Maintenance now for nearly 4 years and they have manage to get me 2 monthly payments via the deduction of earnings but as soon as they find where my ex is working and get the deduction set up he leaves his job stays unemployed for a while then starts another job and so on. Child maintence tell me while he has a job they have to go through the deduction of earnings root, but this is getting ridiculous as he is now in arrears of £10,000. I'm working 3 jobs to try and keep my head above water and keep a roof over my children's heads. Does anyone know if I can force child maintenance to go to court and get a liability order and then enforce bailiffs. He presently owns 3 cars and 2 motorbikes and quite happily admits to people he knows will tell me that he has no intention of paying. Please, any help or advise would be wonderful.

Our Response:
Court may be an option if you can prove your ex is earning a regular wage and paying tax, but is avoiding paying child maintenance. However, where the CMS cannot get the money, so the court may find it difficult for the same or similar reasons. You may wish to seek legal advice.

I paid maintenance upfront in a lump sum as requested by my ex. She has now gone to the CSA who have upheld her claim but will not take into account the maintenance I have paid as per the consent order, expecting me to pay twice. The maintenance I paid is more that than the CSA calculated monthly amount. They pursue arrears but disregard prepayments. This is completely unjust. Please advice. Thanks very much.

Our Response:
Your only recourse would be to complain and give proof of the court order, please see link here. Or refer the matter back to the courts for consideration.

@Buzzybee - your partner will have to allow CMS to take him to court and the court will decide. He could also send info to prove he has no income. That may stop CMS taking it further.

Hi my partner has received a letter from cms stating to pay now or face legal action. My partners owes arrears to cms for his son from a previous relationship however since I have returned back to work he is no longer able to claim esa benefit and therefore has no income to pay maintenance or arrears.

Phil - Your Question:
Please help and give me some advice. My come from an abusive relationship with my son's father. I tried for many years before going to the cms to get payments a year and half ago. The CMS were aware of this but I still agreed to go through their informal payment as requested. To which he paid two payments and worked hard to manipulate me during this time. The father sees his son whenever he wishes and enjoys taking him out, buying £50 a pop Xbox games and been working all this time apart from 4 months ago he went on the dole for 1 month but is back employed again. Cms agreed finally about 9 months ago to collection which I thought would finally resolve. Then it turns out they just say you have to pay. I have been trying for months to get them to do an attachment of earnings. I've had to be the one who gives all my ex's contact details and employer details. My ex refuses to speak to them and makes me pass the details on. I wrote a letter a year ago as I was financially struggling and having to use payday loans begging for the CMS to help. I'm now in the position where I have defaulted on those loans. Paid over a £1000 in interest fees. I spoke to a really helpful person a month ago who promised me they would go to attachment of earnings. I rang 4 weeks later to be told sorry we failed to do it but we'll do it now. Rang today and I've been assigned a new case worker who apologised again nothing has been done and she needs to get up to speed with my case. Arrears are £3500. What can I do is this normal?

The first 2 years of us splitting up I only paid for school trips meals and bus fare. But circumstances changed and now she lives with her mom and dad and has a well paid job. I only have my 2 boys on a Saturday night. Should I be paying her anything?

Our Response:
Regardless of what your ex's financial position is, what she is earning and where she is living, it makes no difference to the fact you are legally responsible for paying child maintenance to your children if you have an income. You should see how much you should be paying via the Child Maintenance Options link here.

Romam - Your Question:
My cmo case is coming to an end very soon as my youngest is now coming up to 18. My ex husband has always managed to evade proper payment. In the past he has worked but avoided paying maintenance to his children. He has his own business which he set up 12 months ago but states he has Gulliam Barrie syndrome so gets a benefit (even though he has new cars and rides an extremely fast motorbike), so I have been on the bob basic payments.I continued my arrears from the CSA to the CMO. Will I be entitled to these arrears when my case is closed and how would I go about it. Had trouble with the CSA since 2011 and the CMO haven't been very good up to now either. Any advice would be fab. Thank you

Our Response:
If it is difficult to gain any child maintenance payments currently, then it may not improve. CMS bases payments upon earnings and gets information on the tax your ex pays through HMRC. If he is not paying much tax and is in receipt of benefits, there is unfortunately little CMS can do.

Dizzy1885 - Your Question:
Hi my ex husband has been paying direct payment for 3 children 2 of which he should see a min of 52 times a year at a rate of £65.64. For the past 3 months I know he has been earning 3x his wage working away. And hasn't been seeing his children at all. But when I asked him about this he gets verbal and threatening. At the end of July him wages will go to what they were before. I just see my children are missing out financially and spending time with their father. But the treats are real as he is holding all the cards over the sale of our old family home. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Our Response:
I can only suggest you speak directly to Child Maintenance Service who will be able to advise you further regarding this question. Child maintenance payments through CMS are taken directly from his earnings and the amount of tax your children's father will pay. If you have a family-based arrangement there is little you can do as the agreement is made between you both mutually and the likes of arrears and/or changes in wages are not taken into consideration.

Hi, My case moved from the CSA as soon as the CMO was set up.My ex has continually evaded payments, gets caught up with and pays via an enforced DEO for a few months then changes jobs and drops off the radar again for months on end.He had nearly £10k of arrears.Yet we are continually having to restart the process every time he evades payment.How long will this continue?Is there actually any enforcement for absent parents who continually play the system?I know for a fact that my ex moves between two employers who delay as long as possible the DEO.also, what happens to those arrears once my son leaves school/university?My son has SEN and needs costly additional support.

Our Response:
If you had a family-based arrangement (not organised through CMS/CSA) then you would not be eligible for back pay.

My ex has spoken with cma and they made a first calculation on an inncorect gross ammount. So i applyed for wage review as i know he earns well over double their calculation weekly. They did send to an address they believed was his (and is) but he returned the post stating no one of this name at this address. The next post came to mine. Hes been using my address illagily and i keep returning the mail. My question is. How does his address be shown it is his address without him varafing so they can proceed claim. Its on 6mnth hold atm. As he will just continue to send mail back. There has to be a way to prove he is at this address and just avoiding responsibility of payment.
