CHILD SUPPORT: Child Support Agency v Learad; Child Support Agency v Buddles [2008]

(Queen's Bench Division (Administrative); Underhill J; 16 July 2008)

The justices dismissed applications for liability orders against two non-paying parents, concluding that the first parent was not habitually resident in the UK for the relevant period and that the second parent was not a liable person.

Allowing the Secretary of State's appeals by way of case stated, these two decisions by the justices had both involved questioning the original maintenance assessments in an impermissible way, under Child Support Act 1991, s 33(4); both decisions would be quashed.
