    Default PT work and Centrelink payments

    I'm hoping someone might care to share. It's quite personal info so I'll happily accept any PM's people might care to send.
    Long story short, I'm due to RTW from Mat leave in March.
    DH and I will be 'consciously uncoupling' before then in a trial separation.
    I have to leave the family home with DD as he won't move.
    I have an appointment with a caseworker next week but want to start getting my head around finances so I can start looking for places.
    If I go back to work the hours Id planned I figure I'll net $1100/fortnight.
    How much per week can I expect from DH? I'm sure it would all vary but is there a certain percentage they are supposed to give?
    If I net $1100/fortnight will I be over the threshold for assistance?
    I know if I go back FT I'm certainly over the threshold.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I would go on the human services website and it will give you an estimate of how much you can earn and if your eligible for any PPS. It actually asks you what your circumstances are. The amount of child support you get does affect your ftb as well
