These Regulations provide for a temporary compensation scheme made under section 26 of the Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Act (Northern Ireland) 2000 (“the Act”) in certain cases where there has been a delay in the making of a maintenance assessment under the Child Support (Northern Ireland) Order 1991 leading to arrears of child support maintenance.
Regulation 1 contains interpretation provisions.
Regulation 2 sets out the cases additional to those in the Act to which the scheme will apply.
Regulation 3 provides the prescribed date for the purposes of section 26(1)(a) of the Act.
Regulation 4 prescribes the circumstances in which the Department for Social Development may agree that the absent parent will not be required to pay the whole of the arrears due under a maintenance assessment and in which it will not seek to recover any of the arrears.
