CSA have increased CS payable
1. 1/11/10 - 29/01/11 - $160.00 per week for 2 children aged 17.9 months and 12.10 months.
2. 30/01/11-??/02/11 - $175.00 per week for same children
3. ??/02/11-31/01/12 - 130.00 per week for 1 child
I got on to the CSA website to calculate what the CS would be for 1 x 13 yr old and their calculator told me $100.00 per week yet their estimate states $130.00 per week.
I rang CSA and was told that CS is not solely based on income, it is also based on the age of the child and that when a child turns 13 the amount payable increases.
I have NEVER heard of this before. I always thought it was a percentage based on the wages less self support income.
I have been to their page with the support tables and quite frankly it is just gobbledegook, but even there it states 23% for one child.
Can someone please explain this to me in simple english why the amount of CS hubby pays increases when a child turns 13.
HimaandMe, I've changed the dates as this indicates the child's actual birthday which could perhaps be classed as identifying the children.
