Single parents owed huge sum in unpaid child maintenance
Does your ex owe money in child maintenance? Unfortunately, a new report from the National Audit Office shows that this isn’t all that unusual. Altogether, the amount of outstanding child maintenance comes to a whopping £4 billion. To make matters worse, three quarters of that amount is uncollectable according to the Department for Work and Pensions, so at least £3 billion may never end up being paid at all.
