Detail of outcome
Following this consultation, the provisions were merged with the Child Support (New Calculation Rules) (Consequential and Miscellaneous Amendment) Regulations 2012. These merged regulations will be known as the Child Support (Meaning of Child and New Calculation Rules) (Consequential and Miscellaneous Amendment) Regulations 2012. This decision does not alter the content of the consultation on the changes to deduction from earnings orders.
These regulations amend Part 3 of the Child Support (Collection and Enforcement) Regulations 1992, which governs the making of deduction from earnings orders (DEO). The regulations also make some consequential amendments to other elements of child maintenance legislation.
