Appeal from the SSAT is an appeal ONLY on a question of law

Appeal from decision of SSAT Tribunal found to have properly considered the relevant period for the departure application otherwise appeal found not to be an appeal on a question of law appeal dismissed.

Essex & Essex (SSAT Appeal) [2011] FMCAfam 688

Of interest:

An appeal from the SSAT, as noted, is an appeal on a question of law and is not a review of its decision on its merits. Accordingly, the additional documentation provided by the appellant cannot and will not be considered by this court on appeal.
I am satisfied that the decision of the SSAT as to the payment of school fees for [Y] in 2008/2009 was open to the Tribunal on the evidence before it. Accordingly this Ground of Appeal is not established.

What I can see is tipical of the SSAT in there findings and nothing is Fair just and equitable .

179. The Tribunal also decided that as Mr Essexs income represented about 55% of the couples combined child support income at the time that he should be liable to pay 55% of the cost for music lessons of $2,800, which is $1,540

The SSAT cant make a person pay extra because the other party requires music lessons for there kids.
