These Regulations will amend the Child Support Maintenance Calculation Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2012 to correct anomalies with regard to Child Benefit end dates. This will allow child maintenance end dates to align with Child Benefit end dates and the date a child leaves full time education.
The purpose of the amendments is to ensure that the rules, used to decide when child maintenance liabilities end (once children have left education), are aligned with Child Benefit payability provisions.
