Binding child support agreement

Notifying us

You must get legal advice before you make a binding child support agreement. This is so you know what you’re responsible for in the agreement.

Then:

  • decide if you’ll negotiate an agreement with the other parent
  • use the Child Support Agreement form or draft your terms with the help of a legal professional
  • submit your agreement and any other documents we ask for
  • apply either in writing or over the phone to have the agreement accepted
  • wait for us to assess your agreement and let you know the results
