    Default Child support question.......

    Because his ex ( presumedly ) would have stopped working, her income would have dropped & therefore her ability to contribute her share of costings to the child's care goes down & is picked up on the dads side.

    I have found the CSA estimator to be pretty accurate so maybe give it a go. In our circumstance with a new bub CS drops by about $40 per week.

    Our new baby dropped payments by $12 a month- not much when we pay $800.

    My DPs CS dropped about $20 a week when we had bub

    The child support calculator does take into account new babies and I've found is very accurate

    Oh dear, we pay $840 a month. We believe his pay will come down soon too so would csa accept something in writing stating his pay has dropped so payments are lower or do we have to wait till tax time when it's stated on his tax thing (can't remember what it's called)

    You can put in an estimate but keep in mind that if it is wrong at the end of the year, you could end up with debt.

I know its not a high raise but why one child is more expensive than the other I dunno. I have more to add but I will PM you to prevent any drama
    Generally they go up when a woman has another child because her income lowers/ceases due to giving up work, dad's generally doesn't lower because he has a child because he can continue working. If he became a SAHD and gave up his income his CS would drop considerably

    Is there any other expenses you can cut down? We plan a bub next year and unfortunately it just sometimes means cutting back on things. We will move to cheaper housing, cut back on one of the cars, etc.

    Have you checked your eligibility for paid parental leave, baby bonus, parenting payment, family tax benefit etc? I think you would find that the increased amount you would get from these would more than compensate any slight decrease in payments you will get from CSA. Meaning you might only receive an adjustment of $20 but be eligible for up to a few hundred extra a fortnight depending on your circumstances.
