Child Support Program
Our Child Support Program assists parents involved in the child support scheme, providing advice and support to separated or divorced parents. We work with you to promote the best interests and outcomes for you and your children.
The service aims to:
- provide a holistic service to single, separated and divorced parents;
- support you to minimise the effects of poverty and disadvantage on your children;
- provide information, support and advocacy regarding child support matters;
- provide community education to promote a greater understanding of child support entitlements and obligations and other post separation issues
You will be assigned an experienced Case Worker who, while supporting you to undertake your parenting role, can also advocate with Centrelink and the Child Support Agency on your behalf.
Your caseworker will assess your situation, work with you to identify goals and develop a case plan to address your difficulties, access legal advice and put strategies in place to improve your circumstances.
The program is delivered in collaboration with the Springvale Monash Legal Service to ensure the appropriate expertise is available to help you navigate this complex area.
To receive phone advice or to make an appointment contact us on 03 9546 5255.
