star this property answer text <p /> <p> </p><p>The Child Maintenance Options 0800 telephone number was added to the DWP list of free to call numbers in August 2014. This means calls to Child Maintenance Options from BT landlines and those made by 93 per cent of mobile users, hosted by the six major mobile provider networks, will have the cost of the call met by DWP. Calls from other networks may be free, if they are included within call packages, but this will depend on the network provider. The remaining 7 per cent of calls from mobile users will be able to call the Child Maintenance Options 0800 number free of charge from autumn 2015, which is when the OFCOM ruling requires all network providers to make calls to all 0800 numbers free of charge.</p><p> </p><p>We will also offer to call back a customer, if asked, or if concerns are raised over the cost of the call. Alternatively, customers can also use the online ‘live chat’ facility or email service which is available via the Child Maintenance Options website at <a href="http://www.cmoptions.org" target="_blank">www.cmoptions.org</a>.</p>

Taking this approach has allowed us to accelerate our plans for national roll-out of Universal Credit to all Jobcentres and Local Authorities from February 2015, and will deliver £7 billion in economic benefits per year.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Government is committed to making sure that when people separate they do it in the best possible way. Too many people end up fighting expensive and confrontational court battles when they could be helped to resolve their problems outside the courts. However when people do end up in court it is imperative that they have the right advice and information.</p><p> </p><p>The new package of support announced on 23 October is aimed at keeping disputes away from court, while those who end up in court will be provided with better support. The £2m funding identified in the announcement is not being distributed on a court by court basis. The funding will be used to support a new strategic approach to increasing legal and practical support for litigants in person in the civil and family courts. This will provide direct support in some local courts, and other courts will be able to access national support via email or telephone. This strategy has been developed in partnership with the legal and advice sectors and we are working with them on implementation.</p>
