Child Support

The child support system can be complex and confusing. Our experienced child support lawyers can help you understand your role in financially supporting your child following separation.

Ensuring a child’s financial wellbeing

Child support payments are made for the benefit of the child, and each parent has a duty to help support their child financially.

How much child support you will need to pay, or should be paid, depends on your circumstances. However, it is generally calculated by the Child Support Agency using a complex formula or by agreement between you and your former spouse or de facto partner.

Agreements about child support payments can be made when negotiating other matters such as parenting arrangements or property settlements.

How we can help

We can help you understand your child support rights and obligations and assist with:

  • negotiating child support and preparing a Child Support Agreement
  • helping you apply for a change to child support payments
  • applying for Court Ordered Child Maintenance or Adult Child Maintenance.

We're here to help you.

Make an enquiry to find out where you stand.
