Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
You do not have to be married or in a defacto relationship to be covered. If you have a chils with the mother this is enough.
The child is eligible if born after the date the act commences
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
To be eligible is it section 19 that applies.
Subsection says that section 20(1) applies to a child whether or not the parents: (a) are or were at any time legally married; or (b) have separated on an earlier occasion; or (c) have resumed cohabitation.
If you weren't together at the time the child is still eligible.
I am just following up my last post.
Is there anything further I can assist you with?
