Child support is a complex area of family law that requires careful consideration and attention. It is also an area that can create considerable emotional issues for parents.
The most important thing to remember is that the child/children are adequately supported financially. The majority of child support cases are handled by the Child Support Agency, a federal government body that calculates and collects child support from the non-custodial parent based on a formula in the Child Support Assessment Act.
We can help you to negotiate informal child support arrangements, and help you to understand your rights and obligations with regard to financial support. We can also assist non-custodial parents in negotiating child support and appealing unfair assessments by the CSA.
