As a general rule, limited agreements cannot reverse the number and reception roles of parents, since the annual rate to be paid by the paying parent under the agreement must be at least the rate to be paid by that parent after administration. However, if a parent or guardian subsequently requests an administrative assessment after making an election in accordance with Section 151 of the CSA Act (see 2.10.2) to terminate an assessment that has been affected by a maintenance contract, any new assessment must continue to be carried out on the basis of the child maintenance agreement until the responsibility provided for in the agreement has expired. This is because: CSA Act Section 142(1B) provides that, if liability is based on a child support contract and a termination event results from a Section 151 election, the section 142(1) agreement of the CSA Act, which ceases to apply, is revived from the date the person requests an administrative assessment (CSA Act Section 142(1C)). For example, Robin agrees to pay tuition for Elise of $5,000 per year. Fees must be paid to Sunny Coast College. Robin`s annual family allowance rate is expected to be reduced by $2,500.

If the agreement provides for the provision of goods, services, other payments or benefits, these agreements do not affect the calculation of child support. Goods, services, payments or benefits granted under the provision of the Agreement shall be granted in addition to any administrative assessment.
Transitional agreements also have other termination requirements than other binding child support agreements (see point 2.7.5). Child maintenance contracts remain in effect until terminated or terminated (see above). Amendments to the assessment may be made in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement. For the agreement to be binding, both parties must have independent legal advice on the contractual terms. However, if the agreement does not provide for a change in circumstances, the agreement will continue to be applied in accordance with its terms until its end or end. If a change in the detention decision (finding of exit) or the exit order is in force, if the child support agreement is accepted by the registrar, the decision or injunction to leave the territory is closed and does not resume after the end of the agreement. This is due to the fact that the provisions of the contract appear to be a consensual departure (CSA Act Section 95). Child maintenance contracts shall set out in writing the amount, frequency and nature of child support. .
