How to manage a binding child support agreement
You must get legal advice before you make a binding child support agreement. This is so you know what you’re responsible for in the agreement.
- decide if you’ll negotiate an agreement with the other parent
- use the Child Support Agreement form or draft your terms with the help of a legal professional
- submit your agreement and any other documents we ask for
- apply either in writing or over the phone to have the agreement accepted
- wait for us to assess your agreement and let you know the results.
Tell us about changes to your circumstances that could affect your child support.
We’ll make a notional assessment after we accept your agreement.
To end your current agreement, you must make a new binding agreement that either replaces or terminates the current one.
