As your daughter is 17 there is no need to have court orders any more as parenting agreements are not usually made after age 16. The maintence obligation does continue until she turns 19, so you could apply for this in the New Zealand court or through inland Revenue who collect child support in New Zealand. Generally the courts respect agreements such as yours but you can definately seek child support under NZ law
