Detail of outcome
The government intends to increase the default maintenance rates to £39 for 1 child, £51 for 2 children and £64 for 3 or more children.
This consultation was originally published on the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (CMEC) website. The CMEC closed in July 2012.
The draft Child Support Maintenance Calculation Regulations 2012 (‘the Calculation Regulations’) set out all the regulations relating to the calculation of maintenance for the purposes of the new statutory child maintenance scheme.
They set out the rules relating to the calculation of maintenance, including how income is determined, and the circumstances in which those rules may be varied. They also include provisions about applications for a maintenance calculation and decision making in relation to the making and adjusting of the calculation.
