Child support is a legal obligation for a parent to provide ongoing support for their child. It is an administrative assessment based primarily on taxable income and care percentage.
The Child Support Agency can collect and enforce child support payments. They are usually the first port of call when it comes to child support, and have internal mechanisms by which parents or carers can seek to review, amend, challenge or commence child support assessments.
Sometimes however, parents or carers may need to take matters into their own hands when their options through the Child Support Agency have been exhausted.
