Child maintenance

Effective child maintenance agreements can make a big difference to the child's well being after divorce impacts on a family.

Child Maintenance is paid to the parent who has the main day to day care of the child after a divorce. The person without that regular care of the child pays child maintenance to the other parent.  This money is used to help toward the child’s everyday living costs.

There are two main child maintenance options.

  • making a private arrangement with the other parent
  • using the Child Support Agency (CSA) as the statutory maintenance service to calculate and collect maintenance for you
