2000 Act - links to full text of Northern Ireland Statutory Rules

These mostly add further detail to the law defined by the 2000 Act. The Commencement Orders set the dates when sections of the 2000 Act become law. This may be an incomplete set of the Northern Ireland legislation. They don't all appear to be on-line.

Statutory Rules (not about Child Support)
Because about half of the 2000 Act is not about child support, many of the Statutory Instruments are not either. Others enable regulations to be made, but don't cause sections to commence operations. For completeness this section lists Commencements Orders which do not bring child support sections into operation.
