A subsistence agreement for children must meet the requirements of the legislation and contain issues that can be addressed in an interview agreement. From 1 July 2008, there are two types of maintenance agreements for children: binding agreements on maintenance obligations for children and limited maintenance contracts for children. Once the parents have entered into a child support agreement, each parent can apply to the Registrar for an agreement. A mandatory child welfare agreement is much more difficult to terminate and aims to ensure the safety and end of the issue of child welfare. This agreement remains mandatory despite a change in income, loss of employment, bankruptcy or change in income capacity. There are two legal types of maintenance agreements for children: for more details on these agreements, see 2.7.4. A binding agreement is a written and signed agreement that has been concluded after each parent has received independent legal assistance. Your lawyer must attach an independent legal advice certificate to the mandatory interview agreement after giving you legal advice. You must be legally advised by a lawyer other than the other parent. Binding agreements on child support should allow parents to adopt different rules on the maintenance of children, while ensuring a high level of safety and sustainability. For this reason, the Taxation Act provides that independent legal advice must be sought so that the parties to the binding maintenance agreement understand the advantages and disadvantages of such an agreement.
