This leaflet explains how to pay child maintenance using Collect & Pay arrangements and what happens if you don’t make a payment.
This leaflet is for all paying parents who have a Collect & Pay arrangement with the Child Maintenance Service. It explains how you can make child maintenance payments, and what happens if you don’t make a payment.
Collect & Pay is when we work out an amount of child maintenance which you legally have to pay. We then collect payments from you and pass them on to the receiving parent.
