If you are of the mistaken belief that child maintenance is only withheld out of desperation by fathers who are prevented from having contact with their children I can highly recommend you get your facts right – a good starting point for you would.

Emma your story mirrors my own, and now the CMS have actually forgiven his arrears!! As you say he has played the system as it’s the last bit of control he has of us. My children are at the latter end of their teenage years and I have singularly been providing for them for 15 years. I first dealt with CSA and that was just as useless, this new CMS was supposed to stop this. Exactly this! Control being exercised and dividends being used to pay minimal amounts and drive me to fight yet again. The system is so, so broken in these circumstances and it allows people to get away with legal obligations and to avoid facing their responsibilities. You can’t raise a child on less than £20 a week.
