We can advise you on the likely amount that you will receive for child support. This is a payment for your children and generally runs up until your children reach eighteen years of age or when they finish high school.
The amount of child support that you are likely to receive will broadly depend on your income, the income of your ex-partner and the number of nights the children spend with each of you.
We can provide you with advice about the level of your child support and whether it can be increased to take into account, education expenses, children’s health needs and special needs.
We can assist you to decide if it’s best to negotiate a binding child support agreement or utilize the formula assessment from the child support section of the Department of Human Services.
If your children are over eighteen years of age and still need financial support, we can advise you on the merits of making an adult child maintenance application. This is more common where the children are studying at university or have a disability.
