Yet another thread....
Today I noticed I had an extra $61 cash in my bank account, which turned out to be child support.
I thought the payments must have gone up from $31/month. But no, I just haven't been received it for two months.
Going back through my bank statements, receiving child support seems to be all over the place. Is there a certain day/ frequency that it is supposed to be paid?
Also, going through my statements, I realized my ex had contributed a huge $1506 toward dd in almost 2.5 years. Living large over here. -_-

they put it in your account when they receive it, I can go months with nothing then suddenly get something then monhts without nothing.
Its reliable like that

My child support gets garnished from exh's wages weekly so you'd think I'd get the full amount every month.... Nope I still get in dribs and drabs.. I find the whole CS thing quite confusing at times..

From various conversations with Ex, it seems he works on a high-ish wag for a few months, then goes sailing with his yacht club for a few months, with no income. During these times he is on the dole. The high income/ no income seems to even out over the year so he remains on the minimum child support payments.
Is there anyway to have the assessment changed so that during the high wage times, his CS goes up, then back down during the low wage times?

How does he qualify for the dole if his income is highish while he is working?
You'd think centrelink would've cottoned on to that pattern.. sounds like a rort to me...
Unfortunately they base CS payments on his annual income so whatever he earnt in that financial year is what there assessment is off.
Have you called CSA and spoke to someone about it?

Does everyone qualify for the dole if they're not working? He has no assets, so that wouldn't be taken into account.
I haven't spoken to CSA about it yet. I'm not really sure what to ask them, other than "why is the CS always random?" And that simple question isn't really worth the time I'll be on hold.

So he earns a decent amount for a few months, bludges for another few months sailing around as a man of leisure and meanwhile you take care of his offspring with the massive $31 a week that is deemed acceptable because of his lifestyle. That's so wrong.
ETA: $31 a MONTH! I'm not sure you could feed a child for a month on that.

I was under the impression the only way you are entitled to the dole is if you've been fired. If you just resign from your job you have to wait 6 weeks or something like that. In saying that im not 100% sure but I think its changed so if you're over a certain age its a lot harder to get.
I would definitely be calling CSA and asking them why he is only payong $7 when he has a job. You can also apply for a reassessment.
I have asked about the randomness of payments once before and was informed quite abruptly that exh was ALWAYS in credit with his payments so I should be grateful I get anything! I also asked if he IS in credit why am I getting in dribs and drabs??? I told her quite abruptly that she should pull her head out of her a$$, why shouldn't exh pay CS? He walked 14 yeara ago hasn't seen or wanted to see DS so imo he should be contributing to his life!
