Four in five parents now paying for their children

The number of parents using the CSA who are paying towards their children has jumped in recent years – and now stands at almost four in five (79.5%).

The Child Support Agency (CSA) looks at several things to work out child maintenance, including:
• the paying parent’s net weekly income
• the number of children needing child maintenance
• how often those children stay overnight with the paying parent
• if the paying parent or their partner gets Child Benefit for any other children
• if the paying parent is paying child maintenance for any other children
