2.2 Care

Introduction

This chapter explains how the Registrar will determine percentages of care.

Parents can use the online Child Support care estimator to estimate the care percentage for their child support assessment.

Changes to care determinations & alignment of care from 1 July 2010

From 1 July 2010, where parents and non-parent carers are both parties to a child support assessment and recipients of FTB, care determinations for child support and family assistance purposes are aligned (2.2.5).

See 2.2.6 for information on the rules prior to 1 July 2010.
