Child Maintenance Service Charges

EDM number 1116 in 2016-17, proposed by Angela Crawley on 28/03/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Child support, Children and families and Crimes of violence.

That this House recognises that charges on the Child Maintenance Service Collect and Pay service are preventing parents and children from accessing maintenance; accepts that domestic abuse survivors are most at need of a Government service to help ensure maintenance is paid without contact between former partners, yet are among the worst affected by barriers created by charges; understands that research by Gingerbread has found that around one in four receiving parents claim domestic violence is a reason for not setting up an arrangement with the Child Maintenance Service after their case with the Child Support Agency had closed; and calls for the Government to scrap Collect and Pay charges for survivors of domestic violence.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
