Hi i was just wondering if anyone has any idea on how much money is taken off you when you don't know who the farther of the baby is? (from centrelink)
Im in a bit of a crappy situation where the dad wants NOTHING to do with us at all and says not to put his name on anything.
I know by law he has to pay child support and that im well within my rights to apply for it and that if you dont apply for child support your payments are cut but i dont know how much... however taking into account that this is someone that i know would go out of his way to make life hell for us if i did take any action. Would never admit he is the dad to anyone else, could turn to illegal actions to stop me from proving he is the dad etc etc... not a nice person in short.
I want to know what the right thing to do for my baby is and right now im a bit confused because i know i need money for us to live but i dont want to play with fire and have anything bad happen to me or my baby. i want the best for everyone even if that means going to court with the dad and all the problems that will happen because of that..
For now just trying to gather information about exactly what will happen with us money wise.... and soon hopefully i can talk to the socal workers about it
