Public perceptions of fairness in relation to the principles on which the Child Support Scheme is based

The Government has now endorsed the proposed changes to the Child Support Scheme outlined in the Parkinson Report (2005). Those changes were intended to render the system more equitable for residential parents, non-residential parents, children of the first relationship and children in re-partnered families. The most significant change relates to the principles on which the Child Support Scheme is based.

The aim of this research was to determine whether public perceptions of fairness relating to the principles on which the Child Support Scheme is based, are influenced by post-separation family type, the residential parents’ compliance with access orders and an individual’s desire to cease paid work and raise children in the home.
