Tests One of the consequences of having a DEO on the new CMS scheme is the 20% surcharge. Over the period of a child support claim, this can amount to £000's in charges which could be saved. At Durham Legal Services, we can help you approach the CMS with a view to having your DEO removed and you saving the charges.
We recommend if you receive correspondence from the Child Maintenance Service Enforcement Section warning of a deduction from earnings order you should speak to a member of our team by calling 01207 693966. A DEO can result in 40% of your take home pay being deducted from your pay before you receive your salary and not all of this comes off the maintenance owed as you will also be covering the 20% collection fee.
At Durham Legal Services, we look at the root cause of the DEO problem so call us today with your details to talk to one of our child maintenance specialist advisers.
