I don't think it is fair to take a stab at single parents. It's just as hard, if not harder as there isn't that option of 2 incomes when you are on your own. I know my earning potential was much greater and dependence on welfare was much lower when partnered.
Is there any reason you aren't getting an exemption or claiming child support? I would look at addressing this issue to increase the amount you receive per fn.

Your DP gets $1360pf
You get $400ish in tax benefit
So a total of $1760 a fortnight.
Out goings (pf) that you have mentioned:
Total: $752 pf
Remainder for bills, fuel, medication, debt: $1008, or $504 per week.
Am I missing anything?
With dp income and family assistance, you are earning pretty good money fortnightly.
I don't think you should wish to be single just for more money. I don't think it works as well as you paint it.
You wrote the supplements and back pay thread didn't you
My only suggestion is for your DH or yourself to get a job (bar, café, shop etc) where they will pay you cash.
Come on guys.
The op came in for a vent. We are entitled to a vent weather we are on 100 a week or a million dollars a week.
Really the op doesn't need to justify to us what she choose to spend their money on.
She hasn't asked us for any money, just a place to vent.
