5. Child maintenance before March 2003

Your child maintenance will be worked out using an old set of rules if you opened a child maintenance case before March 2003 with the Child Support Agency (CSA). These are called ‘1993 scheme’ cases.

Find out how your child maintenance will be worked out under the ‘1993 scheme’ in the guide, Your child maintenance assessment and help in meeting exceptional circumstances.

Some ‘1993 scheme’ cases might be moved to the CSA’s ‘2003 scheme’. Find out more in the guide, My case is moving to the child maintenance scheme introduced in 2003 - what will change?
