Apply for a child support agreement

Once you’ve read about a limited child support agreement, decide if you’ll negotiate a limited child support agreement with the other parent.

Making a limited child support agreement

You can use the Child Support Agreement form as a guide to help you make an agreement.

You can also seek legal advice when making a limited child support agreement, although legal advice isn’t a requirement.

Using the Child Support Agreement form

You can use the Child Support Agreement form to record your agreement and apply for it to be accepted.
