Child Support - How much child support is payable?

When the CSA is asked to assess a parent’s child support obligation, it applies a formula which takes into account factors such as:

• The taxable incomes of both parents;
• The number of children;
• The amount of nights that the children spend with each parent;
• Any other dependent children of the parents not included in the assessment.

The CSA website, www.csa.gov.au has a calculator which gives a rough estimate of the child support that will be payable in your situation.
