Frequently Asked Questions
How is separation defined?
- Parties are “separated” when at least one person communicates their intention to the other party that the relationship has ended, and both parties no longer live together as husband and wife.
Can child support payments be disputed?
- If a parent believes the current child support assessment is unfair, he or she may make an application with the Child Support Agency for a review. If the Agency makes a decision which again is not favourable to the parent, further steps may be taken to have that decision reviewed.
