What child support options do I have?

Understanding your child support options in Australia is crucial for ensuring your children’s well-being. Arcuri Turnbull Law can guide you through the following child support options:

Private Child Support Agreements

Limited Child Support Agreements allow parents to make private arrangements for child support payments provided the terms are accepted by the Child Support Agency. 

These agreements don’t require legal advice before being made but must be in writing and signed by both parties. 

These agreements offer flexibility but less certainty than Binding Child Support Agreements. If you are unsure about the right path to making an Agreement or if you disagree with Services Australia’s decision, we are here to assist. 

If you believe a limited child support agreement is the right option for you, you can download the form from Services Australia.

Binding Child Support Agreements provide a more definitive arrangement for child support. 

They require both parents to receive independent legal advice and are legally binding, offering a high degree of certainty and stability. 

These agreements can be made for any amount the parents agree on and are not limited in duration. 

They can only be terminated or changed by a subsequent Binding Agreement or a court order under exceptional circumstances, making them more rigid but offering a long-term solution for child support arrangements.

If you’d like to learn more about how we can help, call us on 07 5562 0499 or via our online contact form to book a free initial consultation today. 

Court Ordered Child Support

Court involvement is often sought when parents cannot agree on Services Australia’s decision or when special circumstances are not adequately addressed through standard agreements. 

This could include cases with complex financial situations, international considerations, or other unique challenges.

Child Support Calculation and Assessment

Our experts help you understand how child support is calculated, considering factors like income, the cost of raising children, and time spent with each parent. We provide clear, understandable explanations to help you navigate this process.

Enforcement and Modification of Orders

If a Child Support Order is in place we can assist with enforcing existing child support orders and guide you through modifying orders when circumstances change, ensuring that agreements remain fair and appropriate.

We offer mediation services to help resolve disagreements related to child support amicably. Our skilled mediators work to find solutions that all parties can agree on, minimising conflict and fostering cooperative co-parenting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before forwarding the building and pest report to your Arcuri Turnbull Law conveyancer for either rectifications or a reduction in purchase price, please include a further explanation or instructions surrounding negotiations with the building and pest condition. These need to be itemised and written instructions forwarded along with the report before we can make any requests.  The seller can either deny the request, negotiate further or agree to the request.

Late payment of deposits to stakeholders (especially the balance deposit) means the Buyer will be in default of the contract if the deposit is not paid on the date shown in the reference schedule.  Evidence of an electronic transaction can be provided to the deposit holder and this is taken as being received on the due date.

We recommend that you advise the Agent of our contact details now so that our details can be inserted into the Contract once you have verbally accepted an offer. If you are unsure of the terms of the Contract and would like our office to review the Contract, please ask the Agent to email the Contract to us prior to signing. Once the terms have been agreed upon and a Contract has been signed by both parties, the Agent will send our office a copy of the Contract and we will open a file and email you our initial information pack.

As settlements nowadays are conducted electronically (via the PEXA platform), your sale and purchase settlements can be “linked” making it is a seamless process to utilise any surplus funds from your sale towards your purchase settlement, payout any existing mortgage/s on the property you are selling, and for your financier to advance any additional funds required for your purchase, allowing for both transactions to occur “simultaneously” and for you to be able to move into your new property on the day of settlement, once settlement has been effected.
