    Hi Andrew, I am currently going through a bitter divorce with my husband. It has been going on since November 2019. Since then I have had ~64% care of our children. My husband has been paying child support. However, my costs are much higher than his. We own 2 businesses which have been doing very well over the years (2 Pharmacies) and an investment property that we own outright. Even though they are marital assets, my husband has been taking the full income including rent from three properties and income from both pharmacies. The house that the children and I live in is in one of the most expensive suburbs in our city whereas the suburb that my husband lives in is in a lower socioeconomic area. So, my living expenses are higher. Along with this, my husband refuses to pay for private school fees ($25K/year), dentist and orthodontics ($9000 – braces), optometry (our son wears glasses), podiatrist (orthotics), prescription medication (asthma), private health cover, mobile phones for the children, extra curricular activities, school uniforms, general clothing and shoes. He has told the children that he pays child support and doesn’t need to pay any extra. The child support payments he makes do not provide enough support for me for maintenance/registration/insurance of my car, internet access and computers for the children (laptops required for school) and insurances on home and contents. It was an abusive marriage and we are not on speaking terms. When I need to contact my husband he has demanded that it be via my lawyer and his. This is also costing me a huge amount of unnecessary money. What can I do about this?

      Hi Katrina,

      There is a Change of Assessment process for dealing with issues of one parent not contributing towards the costs of major medical and dental expenses and private school fees. You need to apply for a COA. Both parties are then asked to provide financial info and Child Support will make as assessment. Typically, costs are split 50:50, which would mean the father would be required to pay more child support.

      Although unrelated to child support, the division of marital assets as part of a divorce can account for transactions that have been occurring post separation.

  2. 20 odd changes to payment frequency
    | Reply

    The payer is making up to 20 changes of payment frequency a year. This then allows him to get further and further behind in payments, he has been doing this for years. CSA basically said he can do this as many times as he likes. I need help.

    • Andrew Lancaster (admin)
      | Reply

      Does he have a debt that is growing every year? It seems strange that CSA would allow such abuse of the online system. They could fix it easily, such as by simply limiting the number of payment frequency changes that can be made each year to, say, one or two.

      The person you spoke to may be commenting on the current system. You probably need to go over his/her head to get this sorted. If the problem persists, write in here again and we’ll highlight the issue.

    Hi , I receive minimal amount of child support from my ex.. he has 35% share. However he make me cover is 35% of cost when kids are with him . From day one He has been making me provide him school uniforms , bags , clothing etc even tho court orders made a note he needs to cover his own expenses. Is it possible to get an increase in child support payment .
    PS. He also makes me cover all medical expenses and etc that is supposed to be covered by both party

      Child Support can only help out with a few things, such as major medical expenses and private school fees. You can put in a Change of Assessment application to force the other parent to contribute. Beyond that, it’s normally a matter of negotiation, cooperation and tactics.

      Can’t comment on the court orders because a lot depends on the words used and what remedies, if any, were mentioned in event of non-compliance. I don’t believe Child Support would get involved to help enforce court orders relating to things like day-to-day expenses.

      If your assessment is based on your income for 2019/20 and you expect to earn less in 2020/21, you can still put in an estimate online for your income this financial year. This will reduce your payments for some weeks at least. Rule of thumb: submit an income estimate if your assessment is based on a higher income than you expect to earn in the current financial year.

    My ex is claiming he doesnt make any money and hasnt completed a Tax return in 2 years. he claims he makes next to nothing, as he owns the building company that he works for. Im a full time health professional who earns by all accounts double what he does, and i have the children 85% of the time and he now has to pay zero in child support. How can this be and how do i get him paying for his children?

      Maybe he’s telling the truth.

      You could apply for a Change of Assessment based on assets or earning capacity. CSA would rely on tax return data as well as information handed to them by the parents. An application may ultimately be unsuccessful without good financial info.

    I have 2 major issues around the CSA’s assessment process.

    1. I recently completed a tax return that included an FBT value on it due to a car park that my employer provided for me so that I can do my job. I have found out that the CSA added this in to my Assessable income after the ATO’s assessment.
    I did not receive any financial benefit from, the amount was not paid to me and it was provided to me as part of my job. Why on earth do I need to now pay more child support for something that I did not receive any actual additional income from?

    2. I had also left that employer and had 2 months of annual leave accrued which was paid out when I left the business. I don’t understand why I would pay more child support for annual leave that I didn’t take due to being too busy? If I did take annual leave then my CSA assessment would not have been increased? Where the logic????

    • Andrew Lancaster (admin)
      | Reply

      There is some logic here.

      1 – If fringe benefits were not included as part of a parent’s child support income, parents could reduce their child support payments by converting salary into non-monetary employee benefits.

      2 – Annual leave payouts are a form of income that can be used to help support a child.

      The philosophy here is that anything to maximise payments “to the child” are seen as good. Whether that is true, or whether the practices are fair to parents, are debatable issues.

      Note that you can lessen payments if your income is inflated for one year by submitting an income estimate early in the next financial year.

      Our preferred approach is to limit child support payments by higher earners, which would lessen these problems. Large payments often hurt children by encouraging parents to reduce incomes or try to dominate care.

    Hi I am wondering if CSA share your address with your ex when they send out their letters, as electronically I notice that they send the letters addressed to both of us but I am worried that if he reads them it will reveal my address which I don’t want him to know as there are no orders in place. Thank you.

    • Andrew Lancaster (admin)

      Isn’t your address also the address where his child or children live? Shouldn’t he know that? So, you want him to pay but don’t want him to know where his kids are? Hard for me to get past that. Kids need fathers!

      But, in answer to your question, CSA protect privacy. I’m confident they wouldn’t disclose your address.

    Can you split a payment into a child’s account if they are over 16?

    • Andrew Lancaster (admin)
      | Reply

      No is the answer if I’m reading your question right. Child support is just a transfer from one parent to the other. Any arrangements to do with handing over money to a child can only be done outside the system with each parent’s own money.

    Hi,

    I was hoping if you can help me out. My ex is demanding me to buy things for our child and is telling me how to spend the support because he is the one giving me the child support. Is he allowed to do such things. I have followed the law wherein i am providing food, clothes and shelter. He is also teaching an 8 year old to demand the money from me. Please advice. Thank you

    • Andrew Lancaster (admin)
      | Reply

      Child support is just a cash transfer. Unless you have some sort of formal agreement, your ex has no say in how you spend the money.

      If you are co-parenting, you need to cooperate in some way to ensure your child gets what they need. Generally, the parent who has the child more should be spending more on day-to-day things. In other words, spending should be in proportion to how much time you have with your child. Large expenses (e.g. braces) are often split 50/50. But there are no rules as such.

    I have an abusive ex who has said he wants to financially destroy me. His employment is precarious and would quit in order for me to be paying him child support. I am currently primary carer, but for complex reasons I am considering 50-50. How can I avoid the scenario that he will create in order for me to pay him? I am open to 50-50 if he can waive all child support subsidies and we each take care of our own half. Help! Does the binding agreement child support agreement commit to this?

    • Andrew Lancaster (admin)
      | Reply

      Yes – You need a binding child support agreement. It can be quite simple. You could use words like “Where parenting time is shared evenly, from 45 percent to 55 percent of nights for each parent annually, no child support shall be payable by either parent.”

      To make it binding, a lawyer needs to sign off on it. That should be cheap if the agreement is already drafted when you contact the lawyer.

    My ex has a child support debt of $29,000. I dont understand how this can happen? Child support is supposed to be a collection agency. I have always worked to support our Son and also receive family assistance yet I live pay to pay, zero savings and have struggled financially without help for years. The debt just keeps growing month by month, year by year. The most confusing thing to understand is hearing male friends who are being cleared out financially by paying child support and they cant understand how my ex gets away with paying zero????? One extreme to the other! There is no logic to it all…….

    Hello,
    my ex husband is a Managing Executive of a company earning in excess of $750,000.00 per year without his performance bonuses. He has not paid child support periodic or non periodic payments relating to our Binding Child Support Agreement (which is registered with Child Support) in over 12 months. Child Support have a debt raised against him and he is still not paying and every month the debt keeps increasing. When I call Child Support they advise me they are not able to advise me of the current status relating to my case for privacy reasons relating to my ex husband but are working on my case. They have said that they are prepared to place a DPO against him, but I have to advise them when he is travelling, which i am unable to do as i have no contact with him at all and am not aware of his movements. I am about to loose the home that i have for our child due to this and the school are about to advise me that he is unable to remain there due to my ex husband not paying the school fees as per our Binding Agreement for the last 12 months. Is there anything that Child Support can enforce?? Thank you for your advise.

      The ways that child support debt can be retrieved by the Dept of Social Services include: intercepting tax refunds, raiding personal bank accounts and garnishing wages. You may be able to help the DSS do the latter two by supplying relevant info. Beyond this, there’s not much you can do.

    Hi Folks,
    Another example of how the existing system is flawed:
    My ex had her income set at roughly $70K as she was not declaring any of the benefits she was getting through her business. A month after that decision, she changed jobs and her income increased. I’ve only just found out about the job and income change now 9 months later.
    I emailed her and asked if she was updating her income with CSA, she said she called them twice to discuss but nothing came from that.
    Basically, either she never actually told them of the increase in income (actually unlikely in this case I believe), or CSA has told her she doesn’t need to update her income as it’s been set by the previous process. It required me to put in the change of assessment – special circumstances if this was to be reassessed. The only problem is, I’m not aware of any of that information till now!
    Struggling to understand how that aligns with anything like a fair and equitable process.
    Cheers,
    Mark

      Private school fee costs can be shared if both parents agreed to the children attending a private school. For example, both parents signing the enrolment form can be used as evidence that the costs should be shared. If the other parent is not contributing, you can apply for a change of assessment (reason 3). The normal cost split is 50/50, though it can be adjusted based on income.

      See here for further details: https://guides.dss.gov.au/child-support-guide/2/6/9

      I believe private health insurance would be considered a choice made by you, meaning you are up for the costs. Stop paying or remove him from the policy if you don’t like it.

    I have a partner(ex-wife) who has restricted my access to my children to not allowing me to see them at all. She has got them to send me messages that they no longer want to have any contact with me. I have found this extremely disturbing due to two reasons firstly making the kids send me messages to the effect which must be very hard for the kids to deal with and the second being they live in Sydney and I in North Queensland. I have had limited contact with them due to Covid restrictions and to now have that opertunity to see them taken away for no other reason than its a concern to her financially. I am currently having to make payments which I have never missed but now she has sent child services after me to get more money. This will add additional financial stress and make it so much harder for me to afford to get to Sydney to see them.There has been no concideration that I allowed them to move away as she no longer wanted to live up here and I now have no opertunity to have any involvement in being in in their lives. So how do I get access to my kids if the financial burden is to much for me to afford the travel and accommodation in Sydney.

      You can apply for a Change of Assessment (Reason 1) if your travel costs are more than 5% of your adjusted taxable income.

      The fact that you allowed the mother and kids to move far away could have the kids feeling abandoned by you in some sense. That is something you may want to address quickly.

    Hi there

    I work as a sole trader doing contract work with my income changing unpredictably each week and tax year. What happens when tax time comes around and my income for the year ends up being less/more than the previous years income meaning that too little/too much child support has been paid? Will I then be in debt and owing child support for the previous year because I earnt more? Will my ex be required to pay back any overpayments if I’ve made less than the previous year meaning I’ve overpaid child support?

      (A) The assessment for the current financial year is based on your tax return for the previous financial year. End of story, except for Part B.

      (B) At any time, you can put in an estimate for the current financial year. The estimate takes effect from when it’s made. Once you’ve done an estimate, the tax return for the previous year is forgotten. Then, if your income turns out to be higher than the estimate, you will be hit with a bill. If it’s lower, too bad, so sad.

      Strategy: Do nothing unless you think your income for the current financial year will be less than last year. In this case, put in a low estimate as early as possible. Save some money for the bill if and when your income comes in higher than the estimate.

    Did you name your article on “How To Avoid Child Support Legally” to get a rise out of a bunch of people? What a ridiculous name for it. Although you may somewhat be explaining the facts, why can’t you rename it “What affects your rate of child support?” Or the like? I am the least triggered person out there and even this got my goat.

    Hello,
    I am a single full time working mum. My son’s Dad work in the car industry which imvolves every weekend.
    Basically with his base wage and commissions combined he earns nearly double me. He instists that I have our son attend a good school, which I totally agree and adhere to.
    Because if his work circumstances he only has our son one night a week. He picks him up after work on the Saturday night and I drive nearly an hour to then pick him up on Sunday mornings in order for his dad to work.
    He is not able to have him hand the school holidays but rather 5 days for each term and ten days at Christmas.
    Despite earning nearly double my wages I only find myself receiving a little over a hundred a week from him for child support.
    I’m drowning under a the endless school fees, extra curriculum activities, medications, uniforms and everything else. I have moved to a cheaper area and can barely make ends meet. I don’t mean to sound awful but he buys designer label clothes, just bought a new car and eats at restaurants every night where he lives in the city. During covid whilst he was in job keeper I received no payment for literally months. He does lodge his tax returns on time . Am I not seeing something or doing something wrong ?
    I can’t work any harder and really don’t understand the imbalance or how to improve my situation

      The child support formula has a care threshold cliff at 1 day per week. Below this level of care, a payer pays the maximum amount. Above, and payments reduce significantly (and stay the same until you start getting closer to 50/50).

      If he’s right on the threshold, he pays relatively little considering that you provide nearly all the care. That might explain what is going on. You could get him below the threshold. But it would be better for your son if his Dad took on more care (and more of the spending).

      I assume you’re going halves in the school fees.

      This is just one reason why the formula should be fixed.

    Hi there
    As others and I have mentioned – thank you for the assistance you provide.
    My query is this where one’s income has been set via a CoA process (objection process, run) and advised that any further review / objection would be via AAT – when one submits their income tax return and there is (as can be expected) a variance from the income determined through the CoA process can the Registrar iniatiate an ammendment to the income level they determined. For example if through the CoA process they set one’s income at say 70k and actual income earnt in the period where income was set for CS purposes is say 100k – can s75 be used to initiate a review of the assesment. I note the CSS guide indicates that

    If the Registrar caused the error or substantially contributed to it, the Registrar is more likely to use CSA Act section 75 to correct the assessment rather than the objection process

      To be honest, I don’t think they would notice the income discrepancy or particularly care. You are now back to automated assessments, with a COA decision locked in and formula assessment after that.

      They could change their decision – as your research indicates – but it is probably unlikely and perhaps they would only be prompted to do so if the other party alerts them.

      The legislation only mentions “as quickly as possible” for the timing of when a COA decision must be made.

    Hi Andrew,
    First, thanks to you and your team for the past help you have given me – you have answered impartially and factually.

    It is awesome that you are able to assess the current system based on science and merits, rather than getting caught up in the sub-human intelligence of the creators, and champions, of the current cockroach-level-brain infested CSA system – It’s just a form of begging by free-loading commies from the higher earners.

    Sad to ask this, but the CSA system is creating ingenious circumventing actions: My question relates to renting a property within the zone of the child’s school in the future – If I rent out my current property to pay for the rent of that future property, is there a way I can avoid the rent received from leasing out my current property from entering the calculations for taxable income?

      Thanks Nic. It just makes sense to answer these questions since it can fairly quickly save people time and stress.

      In answer to your question, child support is based on taxable income. If you are earning rental income, that adds to your taxable income. The fact that you also pay rent on another property doesn’t enter the equation.

Law is a world unto itself and lawyers and judges seem to think they can make up their own rules, including where they break accounting principles. The law and social science graduates who populate CSA and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal are just as bad.

    Seeking advice

    Im curious are assessments meant to change frequently? Since December 2020 My actual required payable amount keeps going over the “Current Assessment” Amount. I do keep paying it however it seems a little backhanded to say that an amount is whats actually payable changes. It makes it very hard to consistently budget. Thx, any advice appreciated.

      Assessments can change often. They adjust every time a tax return is submitted, the care % is updated or a Change of Assessment starts or ends. You would have to look at the info provided to see exactly what is going on. You might want to check on my.gov.au that all the info is correct and up to date.

I’m not sure how child support could honestly think that Is fair when he doesn’t pay towards anything for his daughter we have her 60% he has her 40%

      Yep – ridiculous that your partner should be paying child support. The fact is that the current scheme has parents supporting their ex’s. It’s an “income shares” formula that was unfortunately copied from some US states.
