First review

A Child Support first review is the first time we review a Child Support objection decision.

We can only review a Child Support decision 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.


Second review

A Child Support second review is the second time we review a Child Support decision.

We can conduct a second review of the following decisions:

  • a decision to refuse an extension of time to apply for a first review of a Child Support decision
  • a Child Support decision relating to a party'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 review a decision made by the Child Support Registrar about a departure prohibition order or departure authorisation certificate in the General Division of the AAT.
