Whether you are the paying or receiving parent, Child Support can be confusing. We can assist you to understand how Child Support operates in Australia and how your Child Support Assessment is calculated. We can also assist you if you wish to pursue a Change of Assessment Application with the Child Support Agency.
Sometimes parents agree on their own arrangements for child support, particularly in relation to private school fees, special medical / dental expenses or extra-curricular activities. Some parents accept payment of lump sum child support rather than regular interval payments. We can advise you about arrangements appropriate to your circumstances and formalise those arrangements through a Child Support Agreement.
