How Can The Amount Of Money That He Pays Be Reduced By Two Thirds? – Case 64


This is case study number 64

This is Tracy’s Story:

Tracy – Tell us about what is going on with your situation?

I have full and sole care of my 11 year old son, his father lives in Australia with a very well paying job. He has seen his son only a handful of times.

How much did you receive on the old formula?


On the NEW formula what will that amount be per month?


Are you happy with the new formula?


What are your main reasons for being not happy with it?

How can the amount of money that he pays be reduced by two thirds?? Nobody will give me any answers!!


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?

I pay ALL expenses, school fees, uniforms, trips, sports etc and so I should when I get paid $1500 a month but now $500 a month will probably pay his food and accommodation.

  1. What sort of stupid comment is that. Where does it say she is on a benefit?! your made a wild a cusation based on dacta you know nothing about. This mother has her child full time! Sure $1500 is alot of money a month but she has no support from the father who never sees him!! Your missed an entire point of how can it go down?!

  2. Hello,

    I really would like to leave a comment regarding this. Thinking that when a solo mother(father) gets only $340(tax yet to be paid) a week when they apply for a “solo parenting benefit”. they don’t get anything more if they had 1, 2 or 3 children.
    Looking that your son is 11 years old and goes to school, this allows you to have easily a part time job, so there would be a nice extra earnings above the $1500. So for the time that you have been receiving it has been pretty good. So yes you can say that there is a big drop in payment but there are people out there that have it much worse.
