You can object if you disagree with a child support decision or assessment. Anyone affected by a decision or who receives an assessment may object to it.

For example, you can object to our decision: 

  • to make or refuse to make a formula assessment of child support
  • about the proportion of ongoing daily care that a carer provides
  • that a child is or is not a dependent child
  • to accept the other person's decision to end a formula assessment
  • to refuse to accept a decision to end a formula assessment or to overturn the acceptance of a decision to end a formula assessment
  • to refuse to accept an estimation
  • to issue an assessment because you have estimated but did not file your income tax return
  • to impose a penalty
  • to accept an application for a voluntary agreement.
