The Child Support (Northern Ireland Reciprocal Arrangements) Amendment Regulations 2012

The Child Support (Northern Ireland Reciprocal Arrangements) Amendment Regulations 2012 come into force on 29th October 2012.

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

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

A full impact assessment has not been published for this instrument as it has no impact on the private sector or civil society organisations.
