Child Support — Family Law in Darwin, NT
 
 

Spousal & child support

 
If you are ending a relationship or marriage, but you rely on your partner to cover your expenses, you may be eligible for spousal support. Our attorneys can assist you in entering into mediation with your former spouse about the matter, or we can file a court case on your behalf.

We also specialise in child support, which is a legally binding sum of money that one partner must pay to the other to cover the expenses associated with raising your child. In most cases, child support is paid to the parent who has a majority of the care of the child.
