Exempt victim-survivors of domestic abuse using the Child Maintenance Service from the 4% resident parent collection fee (or 20% non-resident parent fee if they don't have care of their children).
Why is this important?
Using the Child Maintenance Service, rather than a family-based arrangement, may be the only safe way for victim-survivors of domestic abuse to claim support for their child(ren) from the other parent. Abuse doesn't necessarily end when the relationship does.
Ultimately, it is children who lose out on the money intended to support them.
