This is case study number 80
This is Jason’s Story:
Jason – Tell us about what is going on with your situation?
Was paying $67 a week.
With in the last 3 weeks gone to $89. $127. $189. Now $343 for one child.
I only get $680 in the hand.
I have a parenting order to say I can see her but cant as her mother paddocks the gate and won’t return phone calls.
All my family are blocked on Facebook and cannot communicate with my daughter.
Rang Ird on multiple occasions to try sort it out but get told that I need to do an admin review which takes up to 12 weeks to process.
How much did you pay on the old formula?
On the NEW formula what will that amount be per month?
Has anything (outside of the new formula) changed that may have contributed to the change in amounts that you will receive/pay?
I have taken up an apprenticeship building earning less income and separated with current partner. To which had three step children.
Are you happy with the new formula?
What are your main reasons for being not happy with it?
IRD not being realistic with people’s situations.
The way I was made to feel over the phone was disgusting..
It’s like all they worried bout is getting the task completed to get there stats up.
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 stress and hardship this has caused me is a lot of restless nights and uncontrollable emotional feelings.
If I was a lesser person within I would have topped myself over this.
Lucky I have friends who have supported me with food and gas to get to work.
