HI, ex used to have the kids 2 nights a week but doesn’t anymore, effectively making me 100% care. He also rarely pays child support anymore as he’s a taxi driver and doesn’t earn much. And he’s terrible with money. He was evicted from his last place for not paying rent. I myself am physically and mentally incapacitated and unable to work but am on newstart. Do I tell CSA I have 100% care? They’ll assess him for more? And it’s already too high for him to manage. What should I do? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks
Definitely let them know because there needs to be record. Although if someone earns under a certain amount which I think is around $23kpa they are except from payments so I wouldn’t expect anything more in terms of money.
I would always update any changes, even if they were for a month i.e. one of our daughters kept deciding to stay at mine instead of dads and would then go back to 50/50. I just felt it was good to have it recorded even though I knew I would still receive nothing.
