This is our sixth case study.
This is Robbie’s story:
Robbie – Please tell us about your situation?
I have three kids living with their mother and my partner has three living with us.
Under the new system, my CS has doubled where as my partners has remained the same, if she actually receives any.
How much did you pay on the old formula?
$620.00 per month
On the NEW formula what will that amount be per month?
$1400.00 per month
Are you happy with the new formula?
What are your main reasons for not being happy with it?
It is going to financially cripple us.
If child support was a set amount per child split between both parents for the basic necessities, what do you think is a fair amount per month per child?
What else would you like to say?
The new formula needs to take into account dependents such as step children.
One size does not fit all and no parent should be expected to stay single forever should their marriage fall apart.
This new system is not fair and is bordering on social engineering.
The other flaw is even for single people you can not live on 17k a year.
It costs more than that just in annual rental here in ChCh.
