Limited child support agreement

Apply for a child support agreement

Once you’ve read about a limited child support agreement, learn how to create one with the other parent.

Making a limited child support agreement

You can use the Child Support Agreement form to record your agreement or you can record it in a separate document. The agreement can outline child support payments of cash and non-cash items, such as school fees and health insurance.

Parents can sign the same child support agreement, or each sign separate identical copies, but the agreement must be signed by both parents.

It’s good to remember that you can also seek legal advice when making a limited child support agreement, although it isn’t a requirement.
