You can apply for child support here and they will collect it from NZ
You make the application here and there is an agreement with NZ about collection

No spousal maintenance has to be ordered by the court.
Once you get the court order then you have to register it in NZ and then enforce it.
The Australian Courts cannot enforce orders overseas.
if the person that is to pay for the maintenance is in australia the court can enforce here.
You do not need to register here. If they work in NZ you get the NZ courts to enforce it and send you the money in Australia
You do not need to register the order in Australia in that case.
