The AAT can review many Child Support decisions made by the Child Support Registrar in the Department of Human Services (the Department).
We can conduct a first review of the following decisions made by the Department:
- any child support decision
- a decision to refuse to give you more time to object to a Child Support decision.
For most Child Support decisions, we can only conduct a first review if an Objections Officer at the Department of Human Services has completed a review.
A first review is done in the Social Services & Child Support Division of the AAT.
We can conduct a second review of the following decisions made by the AAT's Social Services & Child Support Division:
- a decision to refuse to extend the time to apply for a first review of a Child Support decision
- a decision relating to a person's percentage of care for a child.
A second review is done in the General Division of the AAT.
Departure prohibition orders and departure authorisation certificates
We can also review a decision made by the Department about:
- revoking or varying a departure prohibition order
- a departure authorisation certificate.
This is also done in the General Division of the AAT.
