Petition Action

Scrap plans to write off historic child support debts.

Petition Details

The Child Maintenance Service needs to retrieve all calculated child support monies owing so that no non-resident paying parent is allowed to get out of paying what they are responsible for no matter what length of time this takes.

Additional Information

The current situation allows the non-resident paying parent to continue to fail to pay over a number of years, with the possibility that the debt will be written off and they will not be forced to pay.

Some families are highly reliant upon this money being paid towards the upbringing of the children who should remain the responsibility of both parents irrespective of whether they remain together or not. Absent parents should be forced to contribute to show responsibility for their offspring.
