The UK’s Child Support Agency had accumulated roughly half a million UK pounds in child support over three years that was not flowing to custodial parents as intended.
The accumulation resulted from errors in child support orders and errors in implementation of them. Some accidental and some intentional.
But now the agency, working with UK banks, has corrected the errors and has reinstated the flow of child support money to approximately one thousand children.
It is unclear whether the retained monies earned interest and, if so, where that goes.
