Meeting your child support responsibilities

As a parent, you have responsibilities and rights. You can also choose how to arrange your child support in a way that works for you and the other parent.

You’re responsible for making sure:

  • you pay your child support in full and on time
  • care arrangements for your children are in place
  • you lodge your tax return on time, if you need to lodge one
  • you report your income accurately, and
  • you tell us about any changes of circumstances as soon as possible
