Child Maintenance Service

The Child Support Agency (CSA) now only handles existing cases. New applications are dealt with by the Child Maintenance Service. Child maintenance is financial support towards your child’s everyday living costs when you’ve separated from the other parent. You and your ex-partner can arrange child maintenance yourself, if you both agree. A family-based arrangement is a private way to sort out child maintenance. Parents arrange everything themselves and no-one else has to be involved. Talk to Child Maintenance Options if you need advice.
