Since 1 July 2008, child support is determined on:-
- The cost of care of a child/children;
- The adjusted income of both parents; and
- The level of care provided by the parents.
- There is a set child support formula to calculate the child support payable by a parent.
Child support is generally governed by the Child Support Agency.
Parents can enter into private Child Support Agreements by consent. Please contact the RMB Family Law Division if you would like to discuss this further.
