Child Maintenance: closing cases in segments 3 and 4 simultaneously

Consultation opened on 27 October 2014. Closing date 17 November 2014.


This consultation document sets out the proposal to make a minor technical amendment to the child support ending liability, known as 'case closure' scheme to simultaneously close Segments 3 and 4, allowing for a more effective and efficient deployment of resources.


Consultation description

This scheme ends liability in child support maintenance cases on the 1993 and 2003 Child Maintenance schemes and specifies the mechanism by which existing clients on the 1993 and 2003 schemes of child maintenance can exercise their choice to remain in the statutory scheme.
