Details

This leaflet only covers ‘old scheme’ cases – where applications for child maintenance were made between 5 April 1993 and 2 March 2003. We use different rules to work out child maintenance on cases set up on or after 3 March 2003, which are known as ‘current scheme’ cases.

It’s for parents who have asked us to work out again how much child maintenance you should pay or receive.

It reminds you:

  • how we work out child maintenance
  • what information we need
  • what happens after we’ve looked at your case again
