This publication contains statistics on cases being processed by the 2012 statutory child maintenance scheme, delivered by the Child Maintenance Service. Data covered is for August 2013 to August 2014.

The data covers the months of August 2013 to August 2014, covering the period when the pathfinder 2012 scheme was open to new applicants with at least two qualifying children with the same two parents named in the application (from 29 July 2013) and the opening of the new scheme to all new applications on 25 November 2013. Prior to August 2013 the caseload was restricted, with the low volumes of cases handled not being representative of the overall child maintenance caseload. These statistics are still in the early stages of development and assurance. Some of the statistics are currently collated manually by accessing core systems while the development of automated system based reports continues. The statistics have therefore been classified as experimental and may be revised in future editions.
