I am a single mom with a six year old son and living in Sydney for two years as Permanent Resident. Have been separated for more than a year and about to get divorced. I am studying a Diploma Course from TAFE to help me find a job as I currently do not earn. I do not have any assets in Australia and currently my ex husband supports the rent and other financials but after divorce I cannot expect the same level of support from him. Want to know how much and what kind of help I can get from centrelink. I am very bad at the processes and talking to people so if someone can help me get an idea of the amount and kind of help from centrelink then that would help me plan things.
The best thing to do is call Centreline since it is not a set rule for everyone. It can take about an hour to get through but well worth it. Explain to them what you have here and they will advise you.
