The Child Maintenance and Other Payments Act will radically change the existing child support system by replacing the Child Support Agency with a new body, the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (CMEC).

Child Maintenance: The New Law is a detailed account of the new legislation. This invaluable and authoritative guide offers practitioners advice on the law, practice and procedure under the new regime which includes simplifying how child maintenance is calculated, encouraging parents to make their own child maintenance arrangements and introducing tougher enforcement powers to collect arrears of child maintenance from parents who fail to pay.

There is also a section on applications under CA 1989, Sch 1 and a detailed chapter on appeals and judicial review. The book also contains the full text of the Act
