Abstract:

This white paper builds on the recommendations made by Sir David Henshaw in his report "Recovering child support: routes to responsibility" (Cm. 6984, ISBN 010168942X). Sir David argued for an approach in which parents would be encouraged and helped to take responsibility for making their own child maintenance arrangements, but with strong and effective state support if this did not happen. The four underlying principles for change are: to help tackle child poverty; to promote parental responsibility; to provide a cost-effective and professional service; to be simple and open. The Government will replace the underperforming Child Support Agency (CSA) with a new organisation, the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (C-MEC). Various changes to payments and the amount of maintenance that parents on benefit can keep before it affects the level of benefit are proposed. The new scheme will include a more streamlined assessment process, requiring only three pieces of information to decide how much a working non-resident parent must pay: gross income (before deductions); the number of qualifying children; whether the non-resident parent has any children living with them (and if so, how many). The scheme will also have tougher enforcement powers, and options being examined include withdrawing passports and driving licences, and collecting maintenance directly from financial institutions. Another proposal is that both parents are registered on birth certificates. C-MEC will be set up in 2008. The Government wants responses to these proposals, by 13 March 2007. The contact details are: Child Maintenance Redesign team, DWP, 5th Floor, The Adelphi, 1-11 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6HT; www.dwp.gov.uk/childmaintenance/, tel 020 7962 8128.
