My partner and I are on the verge of breaking up and I went on the centerlink website to see what I would be able to get once we broke up and the amount isn't even liveable! I would get $600 from centerlink and $400 for Child Support so $1000 a fortnight and that includes rent assistance. How can anyone live on that?? If your rent is say $300 a week that's leaves $400 a fortnight for food, bills, petrol, school fees, etc. the Childcare percentage barely changed so I couldn't even afford to get a job to help with the bills. How do single mums to 3 or more kids afford to live on their own?
