Child support question…my ex has either quit or got sacked from his job. CSA have accepted his estimate for the 20/21 financial year as $0! I know he has a business on the side and is collecting pretty good cash in hand. I am going to ring them tomorrow for an explanation, but any advice first?
You can complete a Change of Assessment form which means that he will be assessed on earning as a self employed person rather than an employee. However, if he is taking cash you can’t prove it, the only way would be to report him to the ATO but that possibly won’t help anything in the long-term.
If he want respobsible as being a father, he will give your kids financial suport as he still have income from his cash bussines. But unfortunatly many fathers wont do it.As my position as a single mom with no financial support from the father as well..I never begging him,not pushing him. its his responsible but as he wish to not give children a financial support then We need work it out.
As the other replies said, you will have to prove it.This will be on his conscience, not yours. It is hard to financially support kids on your own, but you will just have to get by without his support.
