Both parents have an obligation to provide financial support for their children. Child support is usually administered by Services Australia (also known as the Child Support Agency).
The amount of child support required to be paid by one parent is calculated administratively by Services Australia by applying a formula which factors in both parents respective incomes, the ages of the children and the amount of care provided by each parent. Parents can make their own arrangements and reach agreement outside of the assessment by Services Australia by entering into a Child Support Agreement. Pullos Lawyers can provide advice to you about the different types of Child Support Agreements and the benefits and risks to you of each type of agreement.
