Federal Circuit Court – makes decisions on matters, including family allowances. Where a maintenance agreement provides that family allowances are paid in a manner different from that of regular amounts, it may be established that the annual maintenance rate to be paid for the children as part of the administrative assessment is reduced by an amount or percentage (up to 100%) corresponding to the annual value of the child support to be paid in accordance with the agreement (CSA Act Section 84(1)(d) and Section 84(6)). Example: a frenzy where “the parties intend to enter into a child support agreement, in which Alen covers all education costs for Jaci and Bettina and the annual rate of child support is reduced by 100%” is not a child assistance agreement, even if Alen and Liliana sign them both. This type of agreement can also be terminated by any parent at any time, three years after the existence of the agreement. If the agreement provides for the provision of goods, services, other payments or benefits, these agreements do not affect the calculation of child support. Goods, services, payments or benefits granted under the provision of the Agreement shall be granted in addition to any administrative assessment. The agreement must be in writing and signed by both parties. Services Australia (Child Support) has a presentation agreement that you can use. A limited agreement can only be reached if there is already a child support assessment with Services Australia (Child Support).
The amount of child support in your agreement must be equal to or greater than the amount of the formula. A child subsistence agreement may include provisions: that family allowances are granted in a manner other than in the form of periodic amounts, but do not specify how this payment is to reduce the support to be paid [CSA Act, sections 84(1) and 84(6)) or stipulate that it is a lump sum payment charged against the obligation to assess child support (CSA Act, section 84 (1) (e)). As a general rule, limited agreements cannot reverse the number and reception roles of parents, since the annual rate to be paid by the paying parent under the agreement must be at least the rate to be paid by that parent after administration. . . .
