Thank you for your question.
You have described that your son has been paying £20 per week currently. This is known as a family-based arrangement.
In relation to an application made to the Child Maintenance Service (new name for old CSA) - Child Support law states that the paying parent's responsibility to pay through a statutory arrangement begins on the date that the statutory child maintenance service notifies them (verbally or in writing) of the application.
This means that receiving parents cannot ask the statutory services to collect child maintenance from before this date.
Kind Regards
