Child Maintenance Service

An executive agency

The Child Maintenance Service is for when parents can’t agree to a family-based arrangement regarding financial support towards your child’s everyday living costs. It incorporates existing cases under the Child Support Agency.

For the sake of the Freedom of Information Act, they are part of the Department for Work and Pensions. Requests submitted via us are therefore sent to the DWP.
