For cases managed by the Child Support Agency (1993/2003 Schemes) figures on the number of people who have appealed against child maintenance decisions since the introduction of mandatory reconsideration is published in table 18 (page 46) of the latest Child Support Agency Quarterly Summary of Statistics, which contains data up to September 2014.

We are not yet in a position to release full statistics on the 2012 Scheme, administered by the Child Maintenance Service, but when system data become available and fully assured they will be released as part of a managed process, which will be pre-announced and in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.
