Adjustment of Superannuation Entitlements

Hi All,

I hope that I am posting this in the right area.

My ex and I were divorced earlier this year.  Prior to this we agreed on a split for all assets (except superannuation) via mediation.  There was no house/mortgage involved.

I have received a letter from a solicitor acting on my ex's behalf seeking to finalise the property settlement via an adjustment of superannuation entitlements.  The letter says that their client would like to resolve the matter by negotiating directly with her.  I have obtained details of my super balance at our date of separation, attempted to discount a portion of that balance that I had contributed prior to our marriage, and have a figure that I wish to offer her.

My questions is….If we are able to agree on a figure, do I need to obtain legal representation to finalise the settlement?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Can this be right? Increase under new scheme.

Hi all.

I just wanted to run a scenario by forum members which applies to a friend of mine.  Basically, the details are:

1 child >13yrs old

Payer: $55k, 20 nights care per year, 1 other dependent child (50% shared care and no CSA case)

Payee: $120k, no other dependent children.

The payer's liability has gone from $70 per fortnight to around $200 under the new sceme.

I am by means no expert, so I am only trying cast a 'logical' eye over my friend's scenario, but I can't see how this increase is fair or accurately represents the child's situation.  It should be noted that the incomes and level of care are the same as they were under the old scheme.

Does my friend have any options?

CSA Estimators/Calculators - The New Calculator: Non Basic Cases

But…..those of us with more complex cases have to try and plough through the manual worksheets and tables provided, or we can believe the CSA's wonderful reassurance, and I quote…

"If you have two or more child support assessments, the worksheet may be difficult for you to use and the estimator will not work for you.

But don't worry, CSA will work out your child support and issue you with a new assessment between March and May 2008. "

May 2008…We have to sit around for 3 more months waiting to find out how we will be affected!

Yet Another 2008 Child Support Calculator: Thanks

Thanks MikeT.

I suppose I should be patient and just wait for the CSA to send out the assessments, but with all the information (and mis-information) floating around in cyber-space, I was keen to see how I am likely to be affected.

Yet Another 2008 Child Support Calculator: Multiple Cases

Has anyone been able to model 'multiple case' scenarios and how payers will be affected by these under the new formula?

Enter the words you wish your result to include, with spaces between them.


The template search will find all entries matching the criteria. For example, a search with a criteria of ‘Manhattan’ in the field named ‘Description’ (assuming there is one) would find any entries containing the substring ‘Manhattan’ in the ‘Description’ field.

If there are additional categories available underneath a category then there will be a clickable ‘plus’ icon shown to the left of it. Choose your selection by clicking the label (you will see it get highlighted). Hold the ctrl key to expand all child categories also.
