I am a recipient

If you applied for child support in New Zealand and are moving to Australia, you must contact the Australian Department of Human Services to make an assessment for child support in Australia.

You will have to let us know you are leaving so we can cancel payments and you can start receiving entitlements in Australia. You can do this through myIR, or call us on 0800 221 221.

You can also call DHS from New Zealand on 0800 440 953.

If you have already moved to Australia, call our international number: 1800 504 042. You can call DHS on 131 272.
