A family agreement must be reached between you and the other parent. It is not always about money, but it has to be an agreement that suits both of you. They might, for example, agree that the paying parent will pay: in such cases, the clerk finds that the agreement is not a mandatory child care agreement under the CSA Act, Section 80C (2). The parent who has applied for the agreement can withdraw the acceptance application and re-apply for it as soon as there is independent legal advice. In addition, the applicant could request that the agreement be accepted as a limited agreement. However, the rules for adopting a restricted agreement are different and may prevent the adoption of the agreement. Limited agreements cannot, as a general rule, nullify the roles of parents in terms of number and reception, since the annual rate that the paying parent must pay under the agreement must be at least the rate that that parent must pay as part of the administrative review. You can use the daycare calculator on GOV.UK to help you agree on an appropriate revised amount. For example, if the one of you who pays has a new job, you need to know what your new salary is.

Once a court order has been made, the court may compel the other parent to pay child support if they do not pay, which was agreed in the order. If, when reviewing the annual rate or the amount of child care that the parent would otherwise have to pay as part of the administrative assessment, there is no decision (for example. B a change in support or income) that would take effect before the start date of the contract, the rate or amount applicable under section 80E (2) of the CSA Act applies. , 80E (3) or 80E (4) is the rate or amount of the modified assessment. Therefore, the Clerk will complete the decision before applying the review in accordance with CSA Sections 80E (2), 80E (3) or 80E (4). A family agreement is not final.
