    Default CSA Change of assessment Reason 8. Successful?

    Hi Everybody

    I am so absolutely sick of the CSA and them not being able to collect CSA for me that I am making the trip to town (100klms!) tomorrow to complete and hand in a Change of Assessment Special Circumstances form, using Reason 8.

    Can anyone tell me if they have done this and was it successful? EX idiot works for himself under an ABN, he has a joint bank account with his brother so CSA can't touch it, and a myriad of other loopholes he is exploiting. I'm sick of it!

    Apparently lodging this form under a reason 8 gives the CSA more power to dig further into non compliant parents finances? (As told to me by CSA).

    Anyway, wish me luck! x

    Default CSA Change of assessment Reason 8. Successful?

    I wish you luck...
    My ex refuses to do his taxes for the last seven years, they can't force him to do that yet he owes in excess of $10,000 in payment to my DD... He is a master at ducking and weaving!
    Yet my DF pays his CSA on time, lodges his tax returns yet still somehow gets stiffed with extra payments that have no real explanation... So go figure!

    Do you mind if I ask exactly what a reason 8 is? I have the same problem, he works for himself and doesn't lodge tax returns so I haven't seen a cent in the 4 years since we split.

    Thanks girls for you responses

    Babalooba Reason 8 is - the Child Support assessment is unfair because of the income, earning capacity, property or financial resources of one or both parents.

    In the future I will also be applying under reason 3, as my son needs braces on his teeth and some orthodontic work done, which will have to be paid for privately.

    I am truly sick of the injustice of almost living on the bread line constantly and ex living it up, under someone else's name of course! So the CSA won't find out! It's really doing my head in.

    Well you can file it they will send it to your ex who can recant it. If he isnt filing taxes that would be more for the tax department not much more CSA can do just because you file a form. Does he actually have his name on the business?

    ETA if he is doing work under someone elses name I dont think there is a lot they can do. You can try to get pictures of him working but then proving he actually gets paid is going to be a hard part. You may have to do your own digging.

    Her ex can recant it but would have to prove to the CSa he isn't earning what they say he is.

    This is often proved by filing a tax return.

    The CSa can find out whatever they want about a person. You should see what they found on my fob

    Wount it help if she told the tax department that he isnt filing? It is actually law to file taxes if you have a CSA case cant he get into trouble for not filing?

    I don't mean to thread crash but i also have a question about CSA

    My DH ex - wife to whom he has 3 kids with (she has 2 kids from a previous relationship that are over 18) does not have to pay an ounce of child support - (according to CSA) 1 of DH kids lives with us (she is the eldest - 13) & the other 2 live with the DH mother. The kids see her every second weekend for 2 nights & that's it - she also doesn't contribute financially much at all.

    She has been unemployed until recently - she now works full time earning around 700 p/w - DH is on about 75000 per year - so my question is - will she be entitled to pay DH child support next financial year ??

    Any advice would be appreciated

    there is an online calculator that you can plug all the info in and it should give you an estimate, if not call CSA they could tell you.
