The child support assessment formula looks at your circumstances to work out how much child support should be paid.
We consider each parent or non-parent carer’s care of the child as part of our child support assessment. This is their percentage of care.
We consider each parent’s income equally when we make a child support assessment. We don’t use income from non-parent carers.
We can base some child support assessments on a fixed rate or a minimum rate.
We work out how much child support you pay or receive if you have 2 or more families from past relationships
If you have children from a new family, we reflect this in your assessment.
