A child support notice of assessment means you need to pay child support to another parent or carer.

We use information about income and care arrangements to work out how much child support you need to pay. You need to make your first payment within 30 days of the date of the notice.

If the details in the notice are correct you can start payments.

If we have the wrong information about you, update your details.

If you disagree with our decisions read about reviews, objections and exemptions.
