      Hi all

      My ex and I get along well. At this stage we are just sorting things between ourselves. I have 100% care and have taken on looking after his pet because he is unable to – the pet has a health condition.

      He doesn’t pay me money as such but pays for our LOs childcare – which I think is pretty generous. I then cover the costs of his pet, which is about $175 a fortnight and all other expenses for our LO.

      Are there any issues with us working it out between us like this? We are going to move to a more formal agreement, its just going to take us some time and I’m hoping we arent doing anything wrong.

      Do i need to report to anyone that he pays this?

      Thanks!

      Nothing wrong with it. Just do the child support estimator online to make sure you are getting around what you are meant to , good luck with it all xx

      As long as he is paying the full cost without the rebate that may workout.

      It’s entirely up to you how you choose to do it. But I would advise that you get everything formalised while you are amicable. Things change, and if you get a good agreement in place now it will cover you in the future.

      The best advice it get everything formalised as the other ladies are saying but no everyone does this and if you are able to work happily in this way then why not? All the best.

      You don’t need to report if you don’t want to because if things go wrong in the future unless you have an agreement in place such as CS there is not a lot you can do. It’s best to get a formal arrangement in place but not everyone does. Every breakup is different.

      Just thinking that the fact you are even worried and asking about this means you might feel you need to prove something in the future, so I would get this formalised with a parenting arrangement/child support or something similar
