It depends on what the circumstance is if it would be successful or not.
Its worth a shot if you think you have a chance, look at 'the guide' on the CSA website for more details on what grounds you can apply.
Does the other parent have qualifications/experience in a field of work?
Does the other parent have enough time without children to work ?
Is the other parent working for cash in hand, if so you'll need some proof, names, places what they do.

XH earnt just shy of $110k 2010/2011 and told CSA he expected to earn $70k this last financial year that's just ended. He only did his tax return for last year after being court ordered to do it at the beginning of this year so I'm not holding my breath for him to get it done any time soon and he consistently doesn't pay child support anyway.
Basically he's just walked away for a job that paid $70k+ for no reason other than he was 'sick of the bullsh!t'
He is qualified in a trade and has extensive experience and a very good reputation in his field in that town so should be able to walk straight in to a job with no hassles at all. He has the children Friday night to Monday morning, every second weekend so has more than enough time without the kids to be able to work and not have to pay childcare.
I suspect he will pick up cash work in the interim but I have no way of knowing or proving it unfortunately.

In that case then i think you have a very high chance of them doing something about it.
I say go for it.
Other parent in our case quit work as soon as childsupport started garnishing wages even though they were only required to pay $16 a week for 3 kids !!
Other parent quit work then claimed disability that same day and went on a 4 week holiday without the kids .
Makes me sick the levels some so called 'parents' will go to in order not support their children

His conduct throughout this entire episode has been absolutely appalling and has done nothing other than to cement in my mind the fact that I made the right choice in leaving him.
