[IN CONFIDENCE RELEASE EXTERNAL]
Inland Revenue is generally unaware of the cause of a customer’s death, including
customers who are non-custodial parents.
The child support formula generally reflects each parent’s share of the costs of raising a
child. However, it cannot account for every situation. If either parent believes that special
circumstances exist that should be considered in the child support assessment, they can
apply for an administrative review.
An administrative review is free, and is the first step in changing a formula assessment.
If a parent is dissatisfied with the outcome of their administrative review, they can apply
to the Family Court for a departure order.
Thank you for your request. I trust that this further information is of assistance to you.
