Guidance for all changes within child maintenance and child support schemes.
Gross Income Scheme Arrives
As from 25.11.13 the Child Support Agency will no longer accept new applications. Any new applications will be administered by Child Maintenance Service. All existing Child Support Agency cases will close over a period from 2014 to 2018
The new scheme of child support calculates maintenance on the Gross Income of the Paying Parent, rather than the Net Income and is set to bring an increase to many existing cases. Additional charges may also be applied if the couple is not able to maintain a Direct Pay arrangement. For more information on how this new scheme will operate visit the CS3 Section on our website
