    CCR is not income tested at all. It is activity tested.

    Yes CCB is income tested so the more you earn the less the government pays towards your child care fees.

    My ex is sure as hell going to pay some child support. He has been claiming poor for the last 18 months and paid nothing. Time for CSA to collect as I no longer work :O I am going to take the next two years to finish my degree so he can damm well pay something towards the children. No I do not get a cent from the government due to my partners income.

    I don't have sympathy for her worrying about paying her bills when she can move closer to us, share care 50/50, have better job, housing & education opportunities & be better off financially if she worked more.
    No you are absolutely right, there are fantastic bio dads and SM's out there. I never said they weren't. But imo if they are expressing some of the opinions voiced in this thread I would question whose best interests they had at heart.

    No the rebate is at 50% for those who are eligible.

    I don't appreciate the assumption I'm bitter over CS at all. Even within this relationship I've again worked 2 jobs due to our financial commitment to ALL the children😢
    Ok, I know you agree that CS is important. Bitter was a bit off, but when you say supporting the other parent that's how it sounds.

    Medical expenses are for the child I presume? Not supporting the mother, helping the child.

    Vacation care costs, you would still have these costs (or part of) in a 50/50 care setting.

    Have he ever had a CS reassessment to take these costs into consideration? Had CSA got the current care arrangement correct?

    Was the shared care arrangement worked out in court or is this what was privately agreed on?

    I disagree that you are financially supporting the ex.

    Not being smart assy but what is a good bio parent & step parent in your opinion.

    I really am curious as I see ALOT of criticism for me, and plenty of others no matter what we say or do

    Don't stress, it goes both ways. It's the nature of the beast (forum).

    Ones that put jealousy and bitterness aside to do what's best for the child - but maybe not always succeed since they are human

    What is a great custodial? one that puts jealousy and bitterness aside to do what's best for the child - but maybe not always succeeds since they are human

    I just wonder in these type of threads, and we have quite a few of them whether the SM's (especially those currently at home) would be saying the same thing if their current husband divorced them then moved onto another family and said oh well unless you give me 50/50 (while I work 50 hours a week) you (and the child) are on your own. Or to have to put up with them fighting over paying CS?

    and I don't think you are a horrible person

    No, only those who are eligible ( you must engage in a certain amount of hours of study, work etc.)
    CCB is based on income.

    Yep everything with CSA is legit, they know care percentage I think but I refuse him trying to reduce CS due to medical or travel expenses we incur/ pay I think it's nitpicking & childish. And it's actually a couple thousand extra we pay. But again I never have not would begrudge this😊

    We do not financially support his ex that was in response to the suggestion that he continues to support the arrangement they had as a couple, of her only working part time
