You can apply for child support from overseas and arrange to make payments.

Australia and New Zealand have a reciprocal agreement which means parents living in either country can make and receive payments administered by the Government.

If you are in another country and the child or the other parent is a New Zealand citizen you may be able to apply for child support.
