Child Support Q&A
Q: I want to agree to receive a lower child support payment than what the Child Support Agency has currently assessed me to receive – is that possible?
A: This is possible and can be done by the parties entering into a binding child support agreement. But remember – if you are entitled to a government benefit, the government won’t be making up the shortfall. The Child Support Agency will create a notional assessment and you will be treated as if you are in receipt of the child support calculated under that notional assessment.
