Changes to Child Maintenance DEOs
Effective October 2012 The Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission introduced a new Deduction of Earnings Order where the protected earnings are a percentage of fixed pay as opposed to a set amount under the existing system. Employers will be required to submit a different schedule of payments and there will also be a new payment method. When the new system starts, there will be a clear dividing line between the employer stopping an existing DEO and starting a new one for an individual. It will not be continuous so there should be no pay period where both old and new DEOs are paid at the same time. It is expected that by 2015 there will only be one single system of child maintenance in place.
