Any person affected by a decision or who receives a Child support to pay, or Child support entitlement letter 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.

If you are objecting to the registration of an overseas maintenance decision under 2007 Child Support Convention you need to submit a challenge to this decision.
