Child Support

Child support is different from dividing your money and property when you separate.

Child support is the ongoing financial support for children paid by parents after separation.

The costs of raising children should be shared between parents based on their individual incomes and the parenting arrangements for the children. Parenting arrangements always need to be made in the best interests of the child and will impact on child support payments.

You cannot use amica to claim child support.

You can seek legal help about child support from the free Legal Help Line in your state or territory.
