SCHEDULE 1CEXCHANGE OF LETTERS AMENDING THE MEMORANDUM OF ARRANGEMENTS RELATING TO THE PROVISION MADE FOR CHILD SUPPORT MAINTENANCE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations give effect in Northern Ireland to amendments to reciprocal arrangements relating to matters for which provision is made by the Child Support (Northern Ireland) Order 1991 and, in Great Britain by the Child Support Act 1991. The amendments to the arrangements relate to the introduction of new rules for calculating child support maintenance, introduced by the Child Maintenance Act (Northern Ireland) 2008 and the Child Maintenance and Other Payments Act 2008, and make provision so that where the new rules apply to a case, the case will be administered in the territory where the non-resident parent resides, and the provisions applying in that territory will apply.

The amendments, contained in an Exchange of Letters between the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and the Minister for Social Development, are set out in the Schedule to the Regulations.
