According to Australian Child Support law, it is the primary duty of parents, whether living together or separated, to financially support their children until they are 18 and self-dependent. The separated or divorced parents can apply to Child Support for the assessment of amount that should be paid for a decent upbringing of their children.
This assessment is done on the basis of Child Support Formula, according to which the incomes of both parents as well the expected care arrangements are assessed to calculate the contribution of each parent towards the financial expenses of raising the child. Court orders bound both parents to notify the Child Support or CS about the care arrangements in the form of written or verbal agreement. In case if both of them are unable to decide mutually about the level of care, then the CS will determine the actual levels.
No matter how strict are the regulations and how precise are the ways for determining the payable amount for children, the negative minded people always find some ways to bypass the laws. Different studies have been conducted to pinpoint these ways and researchers found out that some partners avoid their obligations by minimising the payable amount of child support and use a wide range of tactics.
These tactics include: listing false income under some business name, not declaring all sources of income and working cash-in-hand etc. sometimes there are also links between attempts to avoid child support and family violence like economic abuse.
