I am Single dad who shares care of my daughter with me ex 50/50. My Ex got made Redundant recently and received a redundancy payment. You know the norm so many weeks for each year of service.
Now the thing is she has told me that the payment was like over $20K and she told me it was tax free. She then tells me that because this payment is tax free it doesn't get included in our child support assessment! Can anyone tell me if this is true? Because if it is this seriously unfair on me / the other parent, as when ever she gets a another job and come tax time she will be more than likely $20K better off financially than me yet I still have to pay her child support.
