Default Crackdown on deadbeats

Deadbeat parents who fail to pay for their kids upbringing face losing their homes under a government crackdown.

More than 800 homes have already been identified for seizure as offucials try to reclaim millions of pounds in arrears. Parents who fail to cough up face heavy fines on top of what they already owe to their ex.

Figures show more than £250million was seized from absent parents last year plus £1.5million from bank accounts.

Work and Pensions minister Maria Miller said "getting some parents to pay is like trying to get blood out of a stone" she continued "under our reforms, if we have to spend time and money coming after you, you will be charged some of the cost. Seizing property and raiding bank accounts are last resorts" She said it was hoped the new approach would encourage parents to reach agreement on their kids futures without the need to go to court.

Absent parents owe £3.7 BILLION to the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission, the National Audit office said last week.

They fear barely £500million will ever be collected.

Wow that sounds like they mean business! Each story is different of course, but there are enough cases to show, so many exs live in relative luxury while ignoring the needs of kids. This sounds like parental responsibility will be enforced!

Here there can be liens placed on all the deadbeat's properties. Plus Garnishment of wages. Loss of Driver's License. Arrest is an option too. I have arrested two in the last year on Contempt of Court warrants.

They say they do that here too- but often they find loop holes and all kinds of ways of escaping. Taxes are supposedly grabbed too, but most parents tell me they never see it. :0( it's better than nothing though. at least they do SOMETHING about it.

I just talked with my Lawyer and asked how long is reasonable before I contact the Collection Agent for the Court on my EX now being 7 months arrears. She said call them tomorrow. If my ex looses her DL she can not work....she drives school bus.

That's the screwy thing here... they take licenses, drivers, career, etc. So you take the license, the can't work and then what, pay?LMAO One of the most common ways for an agent to lose their RE license is to not pay child support. Wouldn't it make more sense to garnish wages and put a big black mark on the license?

---------- Post added at 07:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:36 PM ----------

I also believe public humility would be a good way to help deadbeats pay up. They do it to some extent with posters of top 10 deadbeats.. but I think it should be published in papers, plastered all around. That would help solve the issue of those exes who like to tought how spectacular of a parent they are to all around them....until they see the photo's flashing on the rolling banner at the bottom of the newscastLOL

What would be wrong with, once found guilty of Financial neglect, that they get in house arrest, and the deadbeat would only be allowed out to work.

I think that would be a fair solution, no?

@ JM Im glad your country is doing something, better than nothing.

Its about time they done something, the Child Support agency was on the verge of collapse. But there will still be alot of people who wont get paid, seizing homes will work for the people who actually own property but what about the deadbeats who live on benifits and like rent free in council houses? Im interested to see what the government will do about those people.

But yes it is good they are doing something, this has gone on for far too long now, people struggling alone with their children.

This might work, but some deadbeats have no shame.

I like the house arrest idea, you can only go out to work, maybe even add the garnishment of wages too.

unforenetly the state will what there do too, like half.

win some lose some
