Legal challenge to #FixTheCMS

Gingerbread, alongside the Good Law Project and Mumsnet, is supporting four women who have issued a Letter Before Claim to notify the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) of their intention to seek Judicial Review due to the failure by the CMS to collect child maintenance payments from their children’s non-resident parent, leaving them and their children in financial difficulty and, in some cases, in poverty. We have received confirmation the letter has been received, and the claimants’ representatives are finalising their respective applications for Legal Aid.
