It Should Be Based On Ability To Pay – Case 42


This is case study number 42

This is Bob’s Story:

Bob – Tell us about your family?

Paying CS for 1 child. Has gone from $200 monthly to over $800.

I have nil income due to a work injury here in Aussie where I am living.

One thing that has never come into CS payments is the fact I supported someone else s kid for 13 yrs while her father worked doing cash painting jobs and never filed a Tax return, while his partner at the time was on DPB denying he even lived at the same address.

He skipped over $40,000 of child support.


How much did you pay 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?

Struggling to survive with nil income due to injury, likely I will never return to paid employment.

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?

It should be based on ability to pay.
