Free child-support seminar

Free child-support seminar

The Child Support Agency (CSA) is holding a free community information session for separated parents at Southern Cross Universitys central auditorium, Military Road, Lismore, on Wednesday, April 9, at 6.30pm.

Page MP Janelle Saffin said single parenting was widespread in the Lismore area with 11,00 separated parents registered with the CSA and she urged interested parents to attend the seminar.

Its important for parents to get access to the support services they need and understand all their options when it comes to child support, she said.

Representatives from Centrelink, Medicare, Legal Aid, the federal Ombudsmans office, Family Relationship Centres and other community service providers have been invited.

Parents will also be able to find out about major changes to the Child Support Scheme, which come into effect on July 1. For more information phone 131 272 or visit the CSA website at www.csa.gov.au.
