Child Support Lawyers

For most families where the parents have separated, child support is either agreed by the parents, or is assessed and monitored by the Child Support Agency. Child support is not usually dealt with by the Family Court, but it can be in some cases. The amount of child support payable is based initially on the application of a statutory formula, but can be varied depending on the circumstances of the family.

DCH Legal Group can assist you in all areas of child support, including:

  • Negotiating the amount of child support payable between you and the other party;
  • Preparing, or advising you on, private child support agreements, known as or Binding Child Support Agreements; and
  • Child support departure applications made in the Family Court, where you or the other party are seeking an order that there be a departure from the assessment made by the Child Support Agency.
