    Default Child support

    Hi!

    I'm looking in to moving in with my OH, when he moves to Qld, and he will be earning between $90k & $120k (roughly).

    I've been told by several friends that it's only the biological parents income that is considered in CS. So right now, ex pays me $300/m as I am solely on PPS and he earns $70k/year. Is it true that my OH's income isn't taken in to account and we won't end up paying ex a heap?

    It's only your income that is counted.

    Yes it's true that your OH's income isn't taken into consideration for child support.
    Just yours and the other biological parent.
    Your OH's income is only taken into consideration for family tax a and b etc.

    I can't be 100% sure but I think it's only your income that's taken into consideration and not your new do/oh/DH. You can ring CSA and ask them to be sure

    You do realise you won't be able to claim PPS though?
