So for the last few financial years his income has of course been $0, however in the last week, he has managed to get himself a fulltime job earning $40k.
I want to do a COA based purely on the fact that his income will be going from $0 to $40,000 per annum. According to the CS calculator my CS payments will be reduced by $40 a week.
Do you think the CSA will re-assess and reduce my payments based on him now being employed or would they argue that they can only go off 'the earnings for the last financial year' and wont reduce my payments until the end of this financial year when he puts in a tax return?!
I also argued with them over the fact that I object to filling out the details of all my expenses , loan balances and cc balances on the COA application, particularly when they said that my ex will get a copy of my application including all the financial details. I dont at all object to the CSA knowing my financial details but I most strongly object to my ex and his defacto partner trawling through it.
Firstly, do you think I have a leg to stand on with this COA considering he has only just started working ??? Do you think I should just lump it for now and wait for him to lodge his tax return at the end of this financial year eventhough he wont have been working for a full financial year? Do you think I should try to lodge the COA application with a N/A crossed through the section asking for all my financial details?
I dont see why I have to disclose balances of bank accounts, credit cards and loans when my income hasnt changed and Im only seeking the CS payments reduced based on HIS income changing significantly.
Hope Ive made some sense, Im still reeling from the shock that the CSA think its fair enough to withhold my address and phone number from my ex as its a privacy issues (despite the fact that we already call each other and do drop offs at each others places lol) yet think he has every right to know how much I owe on a credit card!!!
