(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations provide for modifications and amendments in relation to the temporary compensation payment scheme (“the scheme”) under section 27 of the Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Act 2000 (“the Act”). The scheme makes provision for certain cases where there has been a delay in the making of a maintenance assessment under the Child Support Act 1991 (c 48) leading to arrears of child support maintenance.
Regulation 1 makes provision for citation and commencement.
Regulation 2 modifies section 27 of the Act, so that it has effect as if later dates were substituted in subsection (5) of that section as the dates before which an agreement must be entered into and expire.
Regulation 3 amends regulation 3 of the Child Support (Temporary Compensation Payment Scheme) Regulations 2000, substituting a later prescribed date for the purposes of section 27(1)(a) of the Act, being the date before which a maintenance assessment must be made for the scheme to apply.
These Regulations do not impose costs on business.
