    Default single mum in need of lots of advice....

They can always change it if he becomes abusive etc. You can go from private to collect at any time. He will still have to file taxes etc and they can step up to help when they are needed. Like i said just a suggestion and what I would do if faced with the same situation.
    Child support doesn't seem to be the issue though. He's already paying it, as the total nights he sees the child aren't really changing, he'd pay the same amount, or less if mums income goes up significantly. What you suggest doesn't seem necessary- if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it!

    seeing as she is almost at school age, it might be an idea instead of fortnighly visits, she saus with him half the school holidays,

    Actually that's not accurate, even if i do move (whether i tell him or not) and he doesn't agree, He can get an emergency recovery order - and i will be forced back to the state, which will put me in a much worse place than i am currently. I simply can't afford for that to happen.
    Also that's what my proposed idea will be, Ive got an appointment on Friday with women's aid here for a free legal consult so we shall see how that goes...

    I have a friend who didnt have anything legal in place her ex took the kids to coffs harbour (from singleton) she had to go up there and go through court to get her kids back, thankfully he got drunk the night before the court date and smashed into a telegraph pole, so it worked wellin her favour
