6.2 Collecting information


This chapter explains how Services Australia obtains information to administer the child support legislation. The Child Support Registrar can compel a person to provide information, to attend and answer questions and to produce documents. Services Australia can also gain access to employer records. However, most information Services Australia uses is obtained from parents or third parties without compulsion.
