Child support can help to secure housing for resident parents and their children after relationship breakdown

2 Sep 2008
Description

The receipt of more than $75 per week in child support assisted resident parents living apart to secure better quality housing for themselves and their children. For non-resident parents living apart, the payment of child support appeared to have no measurable effect upon the standard of their housing. The ongoing obligation to pay child support was nevertheless identified by non-resident parents living apart as an additional financial stress that shaped their housing circumstances, such as preventing the purchase of a new home.
