When df and I first got together we went into centrelink and put me as in a relationship. All this time I was thinking everything was ok. So today I called them about the spousal payment for 2 weeks just to get some info to see if df could afford to take the time off when bubs is born. I am now told that I am still classed as single on there files. They are cutting my payments off as of tomorrow to investigate this. They are telling me I may need to pay back all the money I was overpaid.
If I was in the wrong I would have no issues with this but we have done everything right so can they legally do this? Can I take it further, if so how and where? We can't afford to have my payments cut off with a baby coming in less than 2 weeks.
I am so streesed out right now.
Yes my partner is working but he has only just recently got this job after being out of work for 3 months. Literally all his pay has been going to cover back dated overdue rent and we have been living on my income- now with that gone we either loose our house or we don't care for our baby
