§ Mr. Burt
The 25 per cent. rate of deduction from assessable income, which applies to income left after the absent parent has met the basic maintenance requirement, applies until a maximum amount is reached. For each child, the maximum additional amount is equivalent to three times the total of the income support personal allowance for the child plus the income support family premium.
The parent with care of the children may apply to the courts for additional maintenance once the maximum is reached.
