Child-Support

The majority of children in Australia, of separated families, are covered by the Child Support scheme. Most commonly the payment of child support for children in separated families is either agreed upon by each parent, or otherwise assessed and monitored by the Child Support Agency. The Child Support Scheme provides for the administrative assessment of child maintenance by the application of a formula by the Child Support Registrar. The Courts in very limited cases have a role to play in the determination of child support.

The Process involves application to the Child Support Registrar. In most circumstances there will be no need for legal assistance. We are able to assist should you require it.

We will work with you to give you options should you feel that any Administrative Assessment issued by the Child Support Agency does not produce a fair outcome in your particular circumstances. We can also assist in the preparation of private Child Support Agreements for more complex matters, or where families desire to keep the arrangements private.
