Caring for a child for between 52 and 126 nights each year will reduce the amount owed by 24 per cent, while those with custody for more than 176 nights will cut their maintenance bills by half. The new formula also recognises for the first time that the cost of raising children increases as they get older.

The future has arrived in Australia... Need I say more?

MORE than 300,000 divorced dads will have their maintenance bills slashed under the biggest reform of the child support system in almost 20 years.


Both parents will have the first $16,883 of their incomes quarantined, while any money earned above that amount will be used to calculate the child support amount. Non-custodial parents will be able to reduce their child support bill if they spend more time with their children.

Caring for a child for between 52 and 126 nights each year will reduce the amount owed by 24 per cent, while those with custody for more than 176 nights will cut their maintenance bills by half. The new formula also recognises for the first time that the cost of raising children increases as they get older.

Under the changes, the child support payment for one child aged under 13 will be capped at $15,448, while the limit will be $19,246 a year for older children. Until the new formula takes effect, the high-income limit above which non-custodial parents do not have to pay additional child support will be reduced from $139,347 to $104,702.

**IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS**
We do not offer legal advice at our support group meetings. Legal advice can only be obtained from a lawyer. We do not have a lawyer in attendance at our support group meetings. Our free support group meetings are chaired by a senior certified law clerk who is also a divorced father and an adult child of divorce. Our Support Group meetings are a place to share and exchange personal experience and knowledge about the process of separation and divorce. Discussions at our meetings are of a supportive nature so that fathers can gain a clearer understanding of separation/divorce from the perspective of fathers who have had success in Family Court. Meeting dates are subject to change.
