What is a Child Support Agency Liability Order?

A Child Support Agency Liability Order (CSA Liability Order) refers to an order made on a self-employed individual to enforce a judgment.

As an attachment of earnings are more difficult to enforce on self-employed individuals, CSA Liability Orders are used.

If a debtor is believed to be able to afford to pay child maintenance, a CSA Liability Order is made in a Magistrates Court. If the debtor is unwilling to pay the judgment may be registered.

CSA Liability Orders will appear on our register as either satisfied or unsatisfied, and will remain on the register for six years from the date of judgments unless removed by the court.
