"The correct use of a Segal order is therefore only as a short term, interim measure that must terminate on the date of a CSA assessment. Any order which attempts to control the quantum of child maintenance or even purports to exist beyond the point of assessment, without the consent of the parties, should be considered invalid and incapable of enforcement."
I don''t know this barrister not read anything from him before, but errr segal orders are enforced and unless I''m missing the point here court are not beyond jurisdiction in fact they acknowledge the CSA jurisdiction and raise SM accordingly to reflect any reduction, can court vary SM, yup, I must be tired and totally missing the point here.
The point was that the courts cannot order that these orders reduce pro tanto following the CSA assessment. As soon as the assessment is made the courts'' jurisdiction ends and the order becomes unenforceable. I don''t know how this works in practice.
I get what the guy is saying but the court have jurisdiction over SM so following assessment the court have the right to raise the SM, I must be missing something obvious, I''ll read it again tomorrow.
