11.1 This chapter provides an overview of the child support frameworks relevant to this Inquiry: the legal framework and the agencies that administer it, and the policy framework—including the objectives that underpin the child support scheme. The chapter then outlines the relevance of family violence in the child support system, and recommends reforms regarding the interpretative frameworks contained in child support policy—in particular, about including a definition of family violence and a statement of its nature, features and dynamics in the child support policy guide.
