Data Protection Files
CMS complaints and disputes can be ongoing for some time and it may be necessary for you to make a request for your case files which you are entitled to receive under the Data Protection Act. Disputed child maintenance debt can often be rectified by a comprehensive study of these files, and this is particularly relevant now that old CSA cases are closing and letters are being issued about debt that may have been dormant for many years.
There are new procedures in place to request the files. Follow the link below for the form which you need to complete. Send your completed form to:

The files for CMS should arrive within a month, although CSA files may take longer.
Specialist knowledge of child support legislation is often required to identify any errors in the decision made.
