The new Child Support Handbook is fully revised and updated to give clear, practical guidance to the child support scheme as it applies in 2012/13. 

The Child Support Handbook explains: 

  • who can apply for maintenance and who has to pay
  • how to apply and how to withdraw an application
  • how maintenance is calculated
  • the powers of the CSA to pursue maintenance and seek information
  • conversions and transitional provisions
  • collection and enforcement, including powers to deduct money from bank accounts
  • challenging decisions and making complaints. 

Practical examples, and tactical hints and arguments are included. Fully indexed and cross-referenced to legislation, caselaw and CSA internal guidance. The Child Support Handbook is the standard guide for parents, solicitors and other advisers, Citizens Advice Bureaux, social workers and children's charities.



“An essential aid for anyone involved with the child support system, whether as advisor, payer or recipient. It is equally accessible to the lay reader as to the professional and is quite remarkable for the clarity of its layout, the depth of its explanations and notes, and the accuracy of its content. Highly recommended.”  SOLICITORS JOURNAL
