Have you recently become unemployed?
An application to change a child support assessment in special circumstances may be an option for you. Recent unemployment or a change in the terms of your employment because of COVID-19 may be a reason to review your child support assessment. This includes if:
- your income has decreased;
- your income has increased and you’ve recently estimated your income for child support, or
- care of your children has changed.
If you are in this situation, you should contact Services Australia (formerly Department of Human Services) to update your details and make sure your assessment is correct.
