These official experimental statistics provide data on the child maintenance arrangements made by separated parents after speaking to the CM Options service.
48,700 parents contacted CM Options between February and April 2018. The estimates in this publication are based on telephone interviews with 1,100 of those parents.
We asked parents about their child maintenance arrangements and whether they were made after contacting CM Options. We also asked parents if they thought their arrangements were working well.

The next release of these statistics will be in February 2019.
