Well in Australia if you are over 16 you will receive $3000 up front, for each child born, when you go into Centre Link to let them know that you have given birth. If under 16 the $3000 will be dispersed to you over a course of a year. Also you will go on a parenting Payment if you are not being supported by the farther or significant other, wich is about $300 to $400 a fortnight depending on you cercomstances. Childs Dental, Doctore and Publik Schooling is free until School is over.I hope that helped at all.
