We send a statement to parents who receive child maintenance every year to help them to keep track of their child maintenance payments.

This leaflet tells parents everything they need to understand their statement. It explains what the different parts of the statement are and more about the terms we use in it.

We have also published a leaflet to help parents who pay child maintenance understand their statement.
