I have only just become aware that there are three schemes, having thought the recent reform made it two. However - my initial application was made in 2008, and the Child Support awarded runs from that year. I am definitely aware that the 2012 scheme does NOT apply to us.
The first tribunal (2011) and the second (this year) neither of which concerned this point directly, both involved argument around the child support (Variation) Regulations 2000. These, in amended form may well apply to the 2003 scheme, which seems the most likely to be the scheme my payments are made under.
The CSA asked me this (as did the Tribunal). I would receive Child Benefit but it would be taken back via HMRC from my husband, the child's step father, so I have stopped claiming it.
Would you be able to let me know what regulations govern this, if any? Sally
