Figures released by the Department of Work and Pensions estimate that out of the 41,800 parents that had contact with Child Maintenance Options between May and July 2018, 80% had a child maintenance arrangement in December 2018.

This is equates to 33,600 Child Maintenance Service, court and family-based arrangements.

Almost a quarter (22%) of parents who had contacted Child Maintenance Options between May and July 2018 had a family-based arrangement. 15% set up or changed their family-based arrangement after contacting Options, while 7% already had a family-based arrangement in place or could not remember if they set up or changed their arrangement after speaking to Options.

Not all parents with family-based arrangements will contact Child Maintenance Options so the true number of parents with family-based arrangements in society will be higher.

57% of parents who had contacted Child Maintenance Options between May and July 2018 had an arrangement with the Child Maintenance Service.

54% set up or changed their Child Maintenance Service Arrangement after contacting Options, while

3% already had a Child Maintenance Service arrangement in place or could not remember if they set up or changed their arrangement after speaking with Options.
