Deduction from Earning Orders/Requests allow the Child Maintenance Service to collect child maintenance directly from a Paying Parents employer. The money is paid directly from the parents wages to the Child Maintenance Service who then pass the money on to the Receiving Parent. The department does not record information on the time taken to issue payments to the receiving parents as a result of a deduction from earnings order.
