Well.. we're divorced after being together 6 years (highschool sweethearts, yeh right..) We have three children, 4, almost 3, and almost 2.
I have been on parenting payment and FTB, as he is a suffering veteran who has been depressed and suffering PTS and therefore not doing much of anything.. but as we had a joint bank account and everything was in his name, he was receiving all of the payments on my behalf, I guess?
So what will happen, what will the process be, when we approach centrelink and say.. we're divorced... he's no longer living here... what now?
Granted he did move out 4 months ago but we havent said anything yet to centrelink because we KNOW we're likely in for a big.. big... headache...
Or should we just keep things as they are with centrelink and not do anything at all?
I dont want to do mountains of paper work, have to explain myself over, and over, and over.. risk getting "cutt off"..
Sorry if this is all stupid and I have no idea, but... this is all so new and foreign to me.
At the end of the day, I dont want my kids to suffer because of centrelink and money. That's it.
