      What do I need to do to ensure my ex-partners income is not including in my ‘annual family income’? I am responsible for paying child care but with his income and mine, we are subject to the annual cap. Which means 6 months of the year I am paying $2000 a month for care. We have 80/20 shared custody. Very amicable, no court orders.
      It seems grossly unfair that our income is combined despite being separated and paying double living expenses such as rent, utilities etc.

      I can’t understand how it could be included if you are separated.

      You should be recorded as a single parent with centrelink and so they will only take into account your income which will meant you are entitled to half the childcare entitlement.

      You put in your annual family income as yours only as you should be listed as a single parent. My income is the only assessed income for CCS

      You don’t need to do anything, if you are a single parent his income won’t come into it.

      Hi mum, you can call Centrelink to clarify. Hope you get everything straightened out. All the best.
