The information requested is not available, as it is not recorded by the Department for management information purposes.

Where a parent is a member of the armed forces and is posted overseas, this is not in itself cause for a case to be re-assessed. There would need to be an additional change in the parent's circumstances that the Child Support Agency has been notified of, for example a change to a shared care arrangement, or a change to the level of the parent's income.
