Top 8 FAQs for Child Support Cases

How is child support calculated in NSW?

Child support is calculated using a formula that considers the income of both parents, the number of children, and the time children spend with each parent.

Can child support be modified after it's been set?

Yes, child support can be modified if there is a significant change in circumstances, such as a change in income, employment status, or the needs of the child.

What happens if a parent fails to pay child support?

If a parent fails to pay child support, enforcement measures can be taken, which might include garnishing wages or seizing assets.

Are both parents required to contribute to child support?

Yes, both parents are responsible for supporting their children financially, and the amount each contributes is based on their income and the time they spend with the children.

How does joint custody affect child support payments?

In joint custody arrangements, child support payments are still required, but the amount may be adjusted to account for the shared parenting responsibilities and time spent with each parent.

Can expenses like school fees or medical bills be included in child support?

Yes, child support can include provisions for additional expenses, such as school fees, medical expenses, and extracurricular activities, depending on the agreement or court order.

What should I do if my financial situation changes?

If your financial situation changes significantly, you should seek legal advice to determine if a modification of the child support order is necessary.

How long does child support need to be paid?

In NSW, child support is typically required until the child turns 18, but it may continue longer if the child has special needs or is still in secondary education.
