What is Stage 2 maintenance?

What is Stage 2 maintenance?

Stage 2 refers to a formula based scheme under the Child Support (Assessment) Act, 1989 for parents who separated or have children born on or after 1 October 1989. For parents who are in agreement about child maintenance, the most popular method of recording their agreement is by a consent court order.

This is a simple application to the court requesting that the terms of the child maintenance agreement become enforceable as an order of the court. A court can also vary consent orders on the application of either parent.
