The Department for Work and Pensions is asking for views on options to give the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) stronger compliance, collection and enforcement methods. The CMS was established in 2012. Steps have already been taken to strengthen the action taken against parents who don't pay the child maintenance they owe, including consulting on seizing unpaid maintenance from joint bank accounts. The current consultation proposals include: removing passports – for up to two years; improved calculations – income from capital, foreign income, notional income from assets and unearned income could all be taken into account when the CMS works out how much maintenance a parent owes; and deductions from business accounts – to pay off a parent's unpaid maintenance bill. The consultation closes on 8 February 2018.
