This is a beta version of the new pay and conditions website. We'll be adding new and updating existing information to meet the needs of members and their families.

In specific circumstances, Defence may recognise your child if they will live with you less than 90 nights a year. There's a separate approval process for this.


You should inform Defence Housing Australia (DHA) within 14 days when you begin sharing the care of your child. They can assess your housing options.

Moving homes

Contact Toll Transitions if you need to move when you have shared care of your child. They help manage your move.
