    Unless the 'poor man' is unable to work due to health issues (and he could be so no offence is intended if thats the case) then he is choosing to run a family off centrelink payments. He should be working his butt off to support the children he has.

    He is on dsp, he has mental health problems, but if he had more taken from him I know he would work to afford his own habits and hobbies, just not to provide for his children.

    Have you tried doing a reassessment due to special circumstances?

    You should be asking for more than $20.

    Yep but now he lives with a partner, his dsp has dropped. I assume she works for her income to affect his payments by so much. He also has 2 children with his current partner so they are taken into account as well. He is now on a nil assessment for all his other kids. No chance of any change, and I don't know what he has told them at csa but every time I talk to them it's like poor man, he really is on a low income. Grrr.
