Over the course of the inquiry, we will publish snapshots of responses to the Questionnaire. Organised by theme, the snapshots will provide a summary of the experiences and stories that are being shared through the inquiry.
This snapshot captures some questionnaire responses about how the Child Support program communicates with its clients. The questionnaire has been online for approximately 14 weeks and we have received over 11 000 responses. Though it isn't a statistical tool, it captures the opinions of people who choose to complete it.

The Questionnaire has been online for two weeks, and we have received about 2200 comprehensive responses. There are some interesting trends so far: more than 40% of respondents are aged between 36 and 45, and about the same percentage of respondents receive money through the Child Support program. There are roughly equal numbers of responses from men and women. We have compiled some of the responses about the ease or challenges in negotiating child support arrangements.
