The Family Court does not, except in very limited cases, have a role to play in the determination of child maintenance.
Applications for child support may be made through the Child Support Agency for an eligible child under the age of 18 years and not a member of a couple.
The child support agency calculates the annual rate of child support payable by using the formula prescribed by the legislation. Details of this formula can be found on the Child Support Agency website.
Perth Family Lawyers can assist with all areas of child support ensuring that all clients are aware of all the issues associated with receiving and obligations regarding the payment of child support.
