Parents living in Australia must pay child support – whether they were married or not – until a child reaches 18 years or until they reach the end of the school year if they turn 18 before completing school. We consider your circumstances, the background information and nuances involved, which is why we request that you complete and return our initial attendance instruction sheet before our first meeting. We aim to give you accurate legal advice to ensure an amicable post-separation in Brisbane relationship free of further expense, litigation, and acrimony.
