(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations are made in connection with applications for variations to the rate of child support maintenance payable under the Child Support Act 1991 (c 48) (“the Act”) consequent upon the introduction of changes to the child support system made by the Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Act 2000 (c 19).
The Regulations contain modifications to sections 28A to 28F of, and Schedules 4A and 4B to, the Act for the purpose of variation applications made under section 28G of the Act, as authorised by section 28G(2) of the Act. Variation applications made under section 28G of the Act are made where there is a maintenance calculation in force.
The impact on business of these Regulations was covered in the Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) for the Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Act 2000, in accordance with, and in consequence of which, these Regulations are made. A copy of that RIA has been placed in the libraries of both Houses of Parliament and can be obtained from the Department of Social Security, Regulatory Impact Unit, Adelphi, 1–11 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6HT.
