Abstract:     
The Ministerial Taskforce on Child Support, which reported in 2005, recommended major changes to the Child Support Scheme in Australia. The Government has passed legislation in response to these recommendations and the new Scheme will be fully operational on July 1st, 2008.

The author, who chaired the Taskforce, explains the rationale for the changes and explores the major implications for family law practice. The changes will have a number of implications for parenting arrangements after separation. There are also important changes to the law on grounds for departure from the formula and on the law concerning child support agreements.
