The duty of the Child Support Agency is to evaluate the support obligations of your child after you have placed an application requiring an assessment to be done by the agency. The amount of child support payments to be paid depends on the income of parents, the number of children being considered and also the living arrangements the parents have.
Some parents choose a private child support agreement which may be less, more, or of a nature that is different from the estimation decided by the Child Support Agency. The agreements made by parents can either be registered or not registered with the Child Support Agency. Agreements done in private can incorporate certain other charges, for example, medical costs, fees for private schools or payments for other extracurricular activities.
