Child Maintenance International Enforcement 

The Child Support Agency of Australia has developed factsheets to assist parents with international child support issues. The factsheets are available online and provide information for parents to manage child support arrangements when one parent resides outside Australia.

The Child Support Agency has arrangements with countries for the reciprocal enforcement of child maintenance orders. A list of the reciprocating jurisdictions is available online as well.

Selling or buying land or property in Australia?

Australian states and territories have rules in relation to land or property transactions in Australia. If you require a form to be witnessed and/or need identification documents certified, we can perform these functions for you (fees apply). Consular officers will not sign an 'Identifiers Certificate' or a 'Verification of Identity' form of any kind. This is a document sometimes required by the state or territory agencies, and it is to be completed by your Australian representative (solicitor, conveyancer etc). We do not advise you what documents you need to bring with you. You should check with your Australian representative what is required. The role of the Australian consular officers abroad is simply to certify copies of identity or supporting documents and witness you signing the forms necessary for the transaction involving the land or property. This information was agreed to by Landgate and sent to Western Australia representatives through information bulletin number 258.
