      I’m currently working P/T and have 100% care of my 3 children. Ex should be paying child support but hasnt since he relenquished responsibility of them 4 months ago. He has accrued a debt and I doubt I will ever see it.

      There is potential that I will be eligible for voluntary redundancy at work. How does this affect any child support (if he paid it) or family tax benefit A or B that I receive? Would I still be eligible for these?

      A redundancy payment will be counted as income so will lessen CS, that depends on how much he earns also. The same for FTB, one of them (I think B) is income tested so that may decrease too.

      It all depend on your annual earnings. If your redundancy covers your earnings for the rest of the financial year your payments would remain the same. It is all tallied at year-end I believe.

      Your redundancy payment won’t be treated as income when working out how much benefits you can get. It will be treated as capital. This means that the amount you get in redundancy payment will be added to any other savings you have.

      Take the time to phone both Child Support and Centrelink to the correct information you need to make an informed choice. The time spent doing it will be well worth it.

      Because its redundancy is counted as income it will affect both CS and CL but it depends on amounts, children’s ages, exes earnings etc.
