    Hi, if I live in Bali and work for an American oil rig company, do I have to pay child support to the mother in Australia?

    The money is child support and is for the raising of your child. Why would you want to avoid this and disadvantage your child?

    In addition to the above, I also add that yes, you are still obligated to pay child support. The law holds that your child does not cease being your responsibility just because you have relocated overseas.
