(a)a maintenance assessment or calculation was in force as a result of the Department acting under that Article; or
(b)no maintenance assessment or calculation had been made but the Department had given notice in accordance with regulation 5 of the Child Support (Maintenance Assessment Procedure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1992(1) or regulation 5 of the Child Support (Maintenance Calculation Procedure) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2001(2).
