    THis shouldnt be right unless it has changed recently Australia does not see it the place for a new partner to pay for children that are not theirs.

    Default Child Support TO BE OR NOT TO BE?

    It's not correct. I think the poster is getting "wage" and "circumstances" mixed up.

    Because if you do, that's completely incorrect. My DH could earn 10 million dollars and my ex still has to pay the set amount based on his wage.
    His "circumstances" are taken into account, not your wage.
    Huh??? Does my income play a part in my DH CS payable? If so is it a new thing?

    :O I am having a look now. Otherwise it is a HUGE change. My DP income should have nothing to do with the amount of child support I SHOULD receive from my children's father!!

    Yes it would,and I would still do it.

    I would not be claiming any Centrelink payments so this side of things would not be an issue for me.

    Yes, I think they'd be much more interested if Centrelink was being claimed. Thanks for answering.

    Partner's incomes aren't included (although when I tried for a re-assessment based on extremely high child care fees they stated in their response to me that my "DP can pay for the other expenses")..

    My DP's income has nothing to do with the CS I receive, and my XDP's partner's income has nothing to do with the CS he pays thank goodness. I don't want his partner paying part of his CS, it has nothing to do with her.

    Well thats what they told my partner, Ill have to double check if that is the case. They said that he had to pay more cause I live with him now and they are taking my income into account. The whole, whats mine is yours type thing. Im gonna be annoyed if it all rubbish and we have been paying extra for no reason. Ill defiantely look into it.
