A father with £70,000 in the bank has neglected to pay his fair share of support.

Investigators tracked him down at a new address, traced his account through a credit reference agency and recovered a lump sum of £10,000.

Another father denies having piled up nearly £11,000 in unpaid maintenance. He was found guilty of willfully refusing to pay and forced to deposit £500 a month for his share.

His ex, who takes care of their children full-time, said: “I’m glad I stuck with my case. I thank CMS for their persistence. It’s not just about the money, it’s about the eventual admission that our baby exists as if there was no previous contact.

“My son plans to go to college when he’s older, so this money will help cover his expenses.”

Work and Pensions Minister Baroness Stedman-Scott said: “In just 12 months, a record £1billion payout has been lined up. We will use all the power we have to make sure children are supported.

“These payments can make a difference in low-income households.”
