I get this is close to home for you, but you are applying one rule to the mother but not the father
- she should pay half when in fact she often pays way more, but the father isn't allowed to pay more than half
- she isn't allowed to have another baby which financially burdens him that's her decision so she should pay, but if he has another baby that's more than fair his kids pick up the tab financially.
I know several cases where the money HAS gone down, significantly after 3-4 kids. These guys now pay next to no CS (what happened to 50/50??) while their new family gets all his income, drives a new car and the mother struggles pretty much on her own. Then there's all the dodging of CS, hiding assets, demands over and over for re-assessments.... bc that new car is really biting him financially.

ETA and why should his money be effected by her new babies? they are not his.

I think it kind of sucks both ways, and honestly, I do see the frustration that when his ex has another baby your payments go up. But with respect I think you are so blinkered with anger, you only see your side. Both sides get burdened when more children are born, not just the ex husband.

I strongly agree that child support should be capped. The system is flawed in both directions. Good fun is when the payer overpays so is in credit but csa won't chase the payee to pay back that money.

CS is definetly reduced when/if the paying parent has a new biological/dependent child.
Ill come back with the correct assessment amounts

I think the $7 a week I would get from my ex doesn't even cover the cost of nappies. I'm annoyed that my ex has disappeared off the face of the earth with his new pregnant missus, but my son gets nothing.
But I am so glad that we are rid of him.

It's kind of a sucky system all around tbh and I don't have the answers. All I know is at least the system on this particular aspect is even - when a child is born it affects CS on both sides.
