Child support can be confusing.
The Child Support Agency is responsible for assessing your child support obligations following an application for an assessment. The decision is based on each parent’s income, the number of children and their living arrangements.
Some parents choose to enter into a private child support agreement which can be more, less or of a different character than an assessment determined by the Child Support Agency. Agreements can either be unregistered, or registered with the Child Support Agency. Private agreements can include expenses such as medical costs, extracurricular activities of private school fees.
