Parent With Care wins right to sue the CSA
This is from the Telegraph today. A judge declared that the agency could be sued for damages under human rights laws if it delayed or unreasonably failed to take enforcement action against an absent parent who was refusing to pay child maintenance. The PWC failed in her major aim, which was to establish the right of divorced or separated parents caring for children to enforce maintenance payments directly against the other parent.
Because of the importance of the case the judge gave the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions permission to challenge his ruling in the Court of Appeal. If the appeal fails the PWC will be free to sue the CSA for damages.
