Answer

The Inland revenue Department should be your first point of contact with any questions and concerns about child support, including collection of child support and arrears. If you believe that you are paying too much child support or not receiving enough you can apply to the Commissioner of Inland Revenue for a Departure Order. The IRD website has all the information you need to make an application. If you have had an application for Departure Order declined by the Commissioner an appeal can be filed with the Family Court. We can assist with this.

“I can't speak highly enough of Jenny. She got everything done in a timely manner and when my ex-husband threw a spanner in the works at the eleventh hour she got the required documentation to his lawyers and settlement back on track.” ~ Tracey
“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to John Stirling and Kathryn Wynd for their patience and understanding. We are so honored to have John and Kathryn looking after us. Whenever someone asks if I know of legal firm, I always say Turner Hopkins.” ~ Manaia
