    Are there also other Govt benefits that are available for new parents?
    Hi, your partner is also eligible for 2 weeks paternal payment at $700 per week as long as he also meets the same work requirements :-) So my dh used some long service leave and also the 2 weeks government leave, its a drop in pay for him to only get $700 but it means he gets to keep his work leave to use at another time.

    Cool. My husband has a work from home business, so would that apply? Or does he have to be an employee?

    Hi, no you can ne self employed and still eligible. Basically if you work/recieve income in a legitimate way, i.e declare it and/or pay tax on it/ lodge a tax return, you are eligible :-)
