These changes are giving support to vulnerable people who need it most, whilst at the same time helping people get into work faster.</p> more like this

Evidence shows that work is the best route out of poverty. Children in workless households are five time more likely to be in poverty than those in households where all adults were working. Since 2007/08, the incomes of the poorest fifth have increased by over £850 above inflation, whereas the incomes of the richest fifth have increased by around £650.</p> more like this

At this point we also work alongside our Financial Investigations Unit, where we might consider a face to face visit to the employer is appropriate.

Employers are obliged by law to take this action for us.</p><p> </p><p>We have a range of other strong enforcement powers, including deducting child maintenance directly from bank accounts, using Enforcement Agents to take control of goods, forcing the sale of property, disqualification from driving or commitment to prison as well as restrictions on applying for and holding a passport.</p><p> </p><p>As part of our new Compliance and Arrears Strategy we have further strengthened our collection and enforcement powers to enable us to deduct child maintenance from a wider range of bank accounts and enable us to apply to the court for an order to disqualify a parent with child maintenance arrears from holding or obtaining a UK passport.</p>
