Binding Child Support Agreement

A Binding Child Support Agreement is a legal agreement made between parents that outlines the financial support arrangements for their children. Unlike a court-ordered child support arrangement, a Binding Child Support Agreement is negotiated and agreed upon by both parties.

At Buckley Lawyers, we understand the importance of ensuring that the financial needs of your children are met, and that your legal rights are protected. We offer a specialist approach to Binding Child Support Agreements, providing you with practical and effective advice to help you navigate through this process.

What is a Binding Child Support Agreement?

A Binding Child Support Agreement is a written agreement between parents that sets out the financial support arrangements for their children. It can cover the payment of child support, as well as other expenses such as education, healthcare, and extracurricular activities.

This agreement is binding on both parties, which means that they are legally required to comply with its terms. Once it is signed, it can only be changed by mutual agreement or by court order.

Requirements for a Binding Child Support Agreement

To be valid, a Binding Child Support Agreement must meet certain requirements under the Family Law Act 1975. These include:

  • The agreement must be in writing, signed by both parties, and witnessed.
  • Each party must receive independent legal advice before signing the agreement.
  • The legal practitioner providing advice must sign a certificate stating that the advice was provided.
  • The agreement must include a statement that each party has received independent legal advice and understands the effect of the agreement on their rights.
