The new Child Maintenance Service (CMS) will start charging a "£50-£300 finding fee" to locate an ex-partner who has fallen behind on child support payments, it has emerged.
The Department for Work and Pensions is introducing sweeping reforms to the previously free CSA, including turning it into the CMS.
Other charges include:
- A £50 charge if the CMS has to arrange a deduction from an employer.
- A further £50 if they have to take a late child support payment out of a bank account.
- Taking a former partner to court will now cost £300.
