Managing child support

Information on how to manage child support.

Manage your child support online

The easiest way to manage your child support is online. You can use your Child Support online account and the Express Plus Child Support mobile app to:

  • get letters and statements
  • let us know if your care levels change
  • update your personal details
  • check your payment details
  • send us documents.

Find out what you can do using your Child Support online account. Our Child Support online help guides have step-by-step instructions on how to complete common tasks.

Keep up to date

When you have a child support case, you need to tell us if you have any change of circumstances. This could include changes to your income, contact details or care arrangements. This is to make sure your child support assessment is correct.

Read information in your language about child support. This includes information about paying and receiving child support if you or the other parent are overseas.

Know your assessment options and obligations

You have options and obligations for how you manage your child support assessment.

The Child Support Guide on the Department of Social Services website explains how the child support scheme works.
