Alimony: Emmanuel Macron promotes his reform

Emmanuel Macron travels to Tours (Indre-et-Loire), Tuesday, January 5, to promote the reform of alimony. A promise made in response to the “yellow vests” crisis. The State will take charge of the payment in the event of non-payment.

Alimony: the government launches its reform

A public maintenance service is how the Élysée describes the reform. The President of the Republic is traveling to Tours (Indre-et-Loire), Tuesday, January 5, to promote the latter. Launched on October 1, the system allows a parent to request that the Family Allowance Fund (CAF) become the intermediary for the payment of the pension. This payment is therefore no longer made directly between spouses but via CAF. She is also responsible for collection in the event of unpaid bills.

Objective: 100,000 beneficiary families

The beneficiary then receives a family support allowance of 116 euros per child in the event of default by the ex-spouse. The only requirement is that a judge must have issued an enforcement order for the pension. Once set up, the system can last until the child is 18 years old. The reform aims to help nearly 350,000 people, mostly mothers, victims of late payment or default. The government hopes to benefit 100,000 families per year by recruiting 450 additional agents.
