Child Support

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I kept trying to use the search function to see if anyone else has ideas about how to go about paying child support for a child in another country. My husband finally got a job, and now we are trying to assess what would be the best way to get child support money to Australia without the massive fees that the banks charge. We lose about 25 every time we try to send money, and we're trying to think of other ways to do so.

That is a tricky one.

You need to make sure the way you pay it that it is clear that he is paying child support, he needs a paper record listing it as such.

I've had friends who payed it by cheques and the ex claimed it wasn't child support and the courts agreed with her. Keep receipts!

You're not going to like this idea and working it out with an ex is probably next to impossible but the cheapest way we have found to transfer money across borders is to open an account in one country (US) and withdraw the money via ATM in another country.

A credit union (NOT a bank) will usually ding you 1% currency conversion (transaction) + an atm fee, in our case a couple bucks. At least mine did. In the past we paid $12/$1000 and never found a cheaper way to access money from the US.
