Ex put in for a COA with regard special needs of one of the children.
CSA decided to allow her application. Csa disregarded all information i put forward with regard her application, disregarded that i showed she was purpusefully remaining on an extrememly low income,disregarded the 20% medical rebate and a few other things. I did not contest that the child needed the medical procedure, only the circumstances surrounding the mothers circumstances.
CSa then instructed that my income was not $xxxx but was $xxxxx as they had checked my wifes company ATO records and had decided as i was the principal earner and my wife did nothing, that the supposed profit figure that the SCO came up with was mine and has as a result put me on an income that i am not. This resulted in a decision by the SCO that the new payment amount would be 4 times higher than under a normal assessment. This assessment goes for the next 22 months at a rate i have no way of affording.
The SCO in his decision clearly states that he got the information from the ATO after conference. The SCO also accepted further documents from my Ex after conference. The conference was on one day, the decision is dated the very next day. I was given no right of reply to any of the information the SCO obtained or was presented with and did not know about it till i recieved the decision in the mail a few days later.
The SCO did not request information from my wife, did not have permission from her to acess her company records and he certainly did not have permission to put supposed figures he obtained from the AATO into the decision.
The SCO did not tell me that he was going to review my income through a CSA initiated change of income, he just did it. My EX did not ask for a change of income in her application. For the last several years the CSA have been happy with my income amount.
I did not, either now or in the past ever try to hide my income or do anything that could be construed as attemptintg to lower my income. Everything has been done above board and openly from day one.
there are a few other things in the decision that i will not post as it may be a tad to revealing.
