Following the Child Maintenance Groups new push to collect the £3 Billion pounds of old outstanding Child Support Agency arrears It is becoming a unfortunate fact that the first time many people know the Child Support Agency are collecting child maintenance arrears using a Deductions from Earnings Order (DEO) is when they pick up their wage slip to discover nearly half of their net pay has been removed.
For others, they think they have had a reasonable conversation with someone at the Child Maintenance Service to set up a payment plan they can afford but find that their attempts have been interpreted as them refusing to pay what the Child Maintenance Service want and a Deductions from Earnings Order (DEO) is put in place at the next pay slip.
The impact of this on most families is devastating, especially when added to all of the other economic factors people are facing.
