The Department recorded and published data on the number of liability orders granted to the Child Support Agency up until November 2016. Statistics on liability orders granted to the Child Support Agency until this point are published in Table 22 of the Child Support Agency quarterly summary of statistics: December 2016, available online at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/child-support-agency-quarterly-summary-of-statistics-december-2016

It is not possible to provide information after November 2016 as this data is no longer recorded.

The Department does not record information on the value of liability orders granted in magistrates’ courts to the Child Support Agency. Therefore it is not possible to provide this information.
