I can't see anything new in his post.
D4E saidBriarRose I think you will find cam's post has been edited to include some information.
I said the mother is subsidising the daughter heavily. What I meant was that she appears to be using Cam's money and maybe some of her own to subsidise the new mother. Sorry if that was not clear.
D4E saidCam is subsidizing his daughter heavily not her mother..
D4E saidTruth is we can only answer questions in the way they have been ask with the information given and try to help the person with the support they need and in cam's case it is a way to reduce a questionable C.S.A. payment because he considers it unfair and wants others opinion as to if it is possible.
this is about cam not the mother.
D4E saidIt could be cheaper for you to set her up in her own place close to mum but independent, this may be the only way to reduce the extra income your X is utilizing for her own benefit.
Cam saidMy daughter has to pay her mother back for any baby equipment my ex-wife has bought (about $1,500 bucks worth) and is now paying board ($50 a week) to my ex-wife.
There is no evidence that the mother is charging for hand me downs.
MikeT saidSapphire, what is wrong here is not that the daughter is getting money for being a mother, but that the daughter's mother is getting CS for a child who as you say is an adult and that the mother is then also charging for rent and for hand me downs.
I don't entirely understand the figures, specifically how your income would add up to 46K.
LifeInsight saidSalary sacrificing to super reduces taxable income so child support and tax is reduced and FTB is increased.
In my situation if I was earning 50K and sacrificed 10k to bring income to 40k to get maximum FTB then I would get:
An extra 2k in FTB
Pay 3k less tax and get a good tax refund
Pay 1k less child support
My income would be at 46K
People on low incomes or those that have little super (due to divorce settlement) need to put more into super as they won't have enough to retire on so I see this change from the Labour Government to be against low income earners.
LifeInsight saidBigRed - did you lodge a change of assessment based on "capacity to earn" basis?
So, basically, you lodged a change of assessment application which was returned to you because you did not provide a statement of financial circumstances.
Bigred saidLifeinsight that was a "yes". They told me they wouldn't consider it if I didn't provide a statement of financial circumstances. I told them they had breached the Privacy Act and to reconsider. They sent my application back. I made a Privacy Complaint (they have 30 days to respond). I also lodged a customer compliant citing Ludwig's announcement and demanding they institute a review under reason 8 without further delay - implying they were operating outside their minister's express direction. This has all been done in writing.
MikeT saidKatie, Ive taken your advice and had a look at BB
It is there in the details, not the overview, but there is definite reference to males suffering post natal depression and the fact that it is supported by research.
MikeT saidAs I understand it, for a number of years PND in males has been recognised. Yet going through the PND section in BB there is no mention that I have found of it affecting men. The only section I saw fathers given some implied recognition was in the "Helping Others" section and then partners/ rathher than fathers come after friends and relatives.
Take another look at what I wrote, Mike.
MikeT saidYou mention about the recent Male as being the only potential sufferer of PND.
If that was meant to be a joke, I for one do not find it at all funny.
MikeT saidPerhaps the portion of funding given to Beyond Blue for post natal depression should be split between themselves and myself in a proportion similar to that of the proportion between females and males who get postnatal depression.Hey the CSA may back this as then it would mean more support for my son.
