It’s hard to believe that we’re almost a month into the New Year!

Our offices and most phone lines will close for the Australia Day public holiday on Tuesday, 26 January. As a result, your reporting and payment dates may change – we may also pay you early.

You can still use myGov online services, Express Plus apps and phone self-service this Australia Day long weekend. You can check your reporting dates, update details and report earnings quickly and easily.

There’s more information, including revised reporting and payment dates, on our website: www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/holidays

Family Update

Normally child support stops when your child turns 18.

If your child will be in full time secondary education when they turn 18, you can apply to extend your child support until the end of the school year.

You need to do this before your child turns 18, and your child must continue to attend secondary school full time after they turn 18.

The easiest way to extend child support is online using your Child Support online account through myGov. We have a step-by-step guide on how to do this here: www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/individuals/online-help/child-support/extend-child-support-child-tur...

Cassie Hyams something to keep in mind for later!

I’m owed 30000 she’s now 28 good luck getting anything

What if your child has mental health issues and can’t be at school but is seeing a student support teacher and working with her and doing courses?

Hello- my sons father hasn’t paid CS in years, even though he works & CSA is supposed to collect . He owes approximately 10000 at this time . What happens to that when the child turns 18. Is it just tough luck !?

I think this is crap! Single parents money doesnt stop supporting there kids after 18 si why should the deadbeat other half get away with it.

Sometime I wonder if child support love someone in debt, because then they can charge interest. Interest doesn't get passed on the the parent. Csa keep it.

And yet people can run a business and claim minimal wage so the payer ends up paying more while they themselves are trying to make ends meet. The payer can never get ahead until a child turns 18. Load of shit!

So much for reciprocal agreement with NZ, no help from either NZ or Australian child support agencies.

Nicole Cooksey you have to get it for Jake?

I am owed over $10,000 lucky if I get $80 a month when suppose to be paying over $250 a month and CSA don’t do anything

Found out the hard way that FTB B ends when 18yo, even if they are still at school though. Surely that should also go until they finish Year 12. Most expensive year at school and lose that.

I get $36 a month for 3 children, I don’t need to wait until the children reached 18. What can you buy anyway with that amount?

Its not even worth asking for. So I dont get nothing. As even if I did itd only gets used Against me. Due to dv so not worth it

Child support! What’s that?

Don’t even get what I’m owed now haven’t received a payment since September last year owed $1500 now when do I get that never? What a joke

11year old... he left the country and never paid a cent... almost 14k owing.. reciprocal countries but unless I can supply his details then nothing His signed her passport papers at Australian embassy so wouldn’t it be good if government departments could share this info for the child’s rights

It doesn’t end if you have a debt 🤷‍♀️ you’re liable for the original amount, penalty fees etc.

Why am I still paying for child support.. My son turned 18 this month and he doesn't even live with his dad anymore

I find it interesting that my ex husband can say his having his children more and his child support drops. But his not even looking after them his parents are! Both children come home upset saying they spend 1 night at there dads and the other 6 at there grandparents all so his child support drops and apparently thats ok by childsupport anyone can have them in his time. Its a parenting plan for a reason not a grandparents plan. He also earns more then 90grand a year and tells cs he only earns 70grand. And no i want get it back when he does his tax because he owes money to the government and they will take it first! Now my family tax benefit goes down shitloads and im not getting the right cs amount . Whats the point its all a load of crap!!

Yer but he needs to support his girlfriend. Who doesn’t work on stress leave she’s a cleaner Must be really stressful

Haha whats child support

Child support is the biggest joke of any government organisation, maybe if csa could prove you can raise a child on the “co parents “ $457 a year or even follow up on a proper basis to get the backpay of child support owed cos the “coparent “ isn’t working cash jobs to avoid paying for the child maybe ppl would have more faith in the system
