The DWP has released figures for the use of Child Maintenance Options.
The figures are largely positive and it is a reminder that this is a very useful service.
It is a free service that provides impartial information and support to help separated parents make decisions about their child maintenance arrangements.
The website is www.cmoptions.org.
If you are visiting a solicitor for advice or making enquiries yourself, this is a good starting point.
