    This is 110% incorrect. My DH CS went down this year as his ex went from earning 30 to 35 thousand.

    she only has 2 kids and both are to my ex. i really hope one day it does go down. she does get a decent amount of child support. problem is without her getting all his details...with the change of assesment how do we fight it then.? not trying to be nasty but it does seem unfair.

    That's simply not true. The reason a payer's amount goes up after she has a baby is not bc she had the baby as such, it's bc her income has dropped from not working/cutting hours when the baby is small.

    I knew it was meant to be based on both. she has done tax. see this is why i say if it is good for the paying parent topay more when the reciever earns less it should be good in reverse. in our situation it is not very fair. i do get child support for my other kids (there are 4 i recieve payments for) but it is not much. its enough to buy bread and milk for a week. but it is based on my exs real income. so that is how it is.....we do ok though as im very good with money but it still seems unfair that the other kids mum gets so much yet earns the same.....oh well unless someone can give advice on how to change it we shall wait it out lol

    I'm confused? Your amount for 4 kids from your ex will be different ( I believe but may be wrong ) as the percentage amount he pays will need to be spread across 4 kids not 2.

    Someone let me know if I'm wrong.

    Default Re: Child support question.......

    THEY SHOULD TEACH YOU ALL ABOUT CHILD SUPPORT IN HIGH SCHOOL. Seriously. Get a couple of bitter screwed over single mothers in, get a bunch of struggling screwed over dads in, and they have to learn how difficult it can be when a relationship breaks down.

    Then, instead of offering $5k to have a baby, make abortions free.

    Can you imagine???

    Anyways.

    I have nothing to else to add. Except child support is such an ethical discussion.

    If I was single, I'd have $200 a fortnight left over after rent, if I'm lucky. The ex would pay $550 a week, which would make a huge difference in our lives. If he had a child, I would not want it to go down, because we made a choice to have this baby together.

    If I "trapped" him into having a baby, ie, didn't tell him I wasn't using the pill, or if I cheated on him and left him... If its my choice to have this baby not an equal one... It honestly doesn't seem fair. I wish there was a way CSA could take that into account.

I dont understand it really and think its BS but its the law.
    It is bs but it's based on her cost of living for her dependants.

    Kinda makes kids an investment and that's wrong each child should be the same amount but I guess it's the luck of the draw. Why your children are worthy of less support and seem to cost less to raise. It is what it is keep your head up.

    You might want to look into the Australian CS formula before commenting on something you know nothing about. It is based on BOTH parents income. Due to PPS being so low though, most single parents don't even make the self support amount with is around $21,000 a year
