On 3 April 1993 the Child Support Agency opened its doors for business. 25 years later, it has undergone three major amendments of the original Child Support Act 1991(CSA 1991), namely in 1995, 2000 and 2008. It has had various shifts of name and nominal administrator (under the Child Maintenance and Other Payments Act 2008 the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission took over from the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, only to cede the work back to the Secretary of State, who has since then worked through Child Support Agency (again) and now Child Maintenance Service). It remains technically and legislatively as complex as ever and amendments over the years have done little to simplify it. The original 1991 Act has gone through the amendments already mentioned - such that it is twice the length it was.
