What can we review?

We can review the following decisions made by the Child Support Registrar in the Department of Human Services:

  • to revoke or vary, or refuse to revoke or vary a departure prohibition order
  • to issue, or refuse to issue, a departure authorisation certificate
  • a decision about the provision of security for a person's return to Australia by a specified day
  • to substitute, or refuse to substitute, a later day for a person's return to Australia.

The decision letter should tell you if we can review the decision or you can check the List of reviewable decisions.

We can also conduct a first review of many other Child Support decisions.
