When does the CSA put on a Departure Prohibition Order: Unsubstanstial comments

Sec SPCA

I apologise for the offence you have taken.

My post was meant to explain the unaccountability that the system applies to people the csa have decided are in arrears.(plenty as it turns out,mostly fathers.)

And how a DPO is applied to these people without official notification.(you find out at the airport departure point.)

My member name sums up a lot that is wrong with the FL system .

I am beyond help from this site as my children are now adults but I do not see that as a reason to allow other children and families be abused by the system.

I appreciate you are walking the legal path please accept that some of us are over it.

That path has done nothing for my kids and it pains me to see honest parents sent down that path of litigation in the name of the best interest of the child.

When does the CSA put on a Departure Prohibition Order: C$A Terrorism

How appropriate to point to the C$A guide because it exposes the injustices of the system.

This is guilty till you prove I proove myself innocent stuff.

The biggest problem for me is I am an Australian without multiple passports so I get reamed accordingly.

Howabout you officially let me know where I stand.

Just a quick question RE- CSA Arrears: Dpo,s

Hey Mike do you consider that it would be a fair thing that people where advised that a DPO has been applied against them.

Just a quick question RE- CSA Arrears:

I repeat they have no right to demand your partners income.

If they insist tell them when they provide you with your ex,s full financial situation you will consider providing a further explaination of your situation.

This situation is really peeing me off.

The system cannot have it both ways.

C$A pursuing personal details from employer after obligation has ended and all payments made.:

I have never paid regularly (did originally when I thought it was for the kids) despite their best efforts, they have known where I live, despite them denying this.

Portraying me as a hinderance to their income really set the tone.

Soft targets is a interesting comment because public service employees fall into that box.

I cop the "your a tradesman so being a home maker does not cut it" argument.

Making up figures seems to be par for the course.

What I wish I knew before:

The mere fact that CSA has a gifting policy shows the inadequacy of the system.

One in all in or rack off.

I can not comprehend that this is even considered.

It equates to" I gift my children to the state."

C$A pursuing personal details from employer after obligation has ended and all payments made.: The truth exposed

This example exposes the vindictivness of the system.

Why indeed would the csa persue such a pultry sum.

I personally will see the CSA,s failed accounting out as well because they are incompetent and vindictive.

The best interest of the children has no influence here.

This is all about a Government Agency flexing their muscles over clawed back money nothing more and nothing less.

I would suggest that Silas Stingy factor in the cost of this harrasment and vindictiveness and sue their a#se.

Failing that ask for an apology.

I do not hold any hope for that as the agency has proved in my eyes to be utterly vindictive and incompetent.

I think $200 is very important to this discussion and any one who suggests we just let it go is showing their true position.

Heres a funny story (although we're not laughing): The truth

Trust me CSA is dodgy.

I had a debt to CSA, which I admit purely my fault, my ex passed away and I gained full custody of my son, CSA continued to garnish my wages even after they had been informed and confirmed that my wife was deceased, and when I asked them where that money goes seeing as she is deceased I was told, they did not need to explain that to me.

Only after contacting my local MP was something done at which point my wages stopped being garnished, and I was sent a form to wipe debt, that still unfortunately leaves about $1,000 sitting in the governments pocket that they can't pay as ex's back account closed and they refuse to acknowledge when I became sole gaurdian, but oh well that's a government department for you.
 

I am bumping this up as it speaks volumes of the inequities and bias.

Lest they get away with it.

FACT sheet Self Employed Persons: Full accountability

If someone is illegal minimizing their taxes it should be the ATO that act and not the CSA.

The main point is the only information the CSA should get is the bottom line number and other information the law say they can have i.e FTB and net investment losses etc.   They should not have access to the whole return  or information on a new partner.
  I'm in two minds about this. Completely agree that info about a new partner has no bearing, but I do know that there are many ways to reduce your taxable income when self-employed that do not always reflect your financial resources. Not saying all self-employed people do this, but many do. And let's face it - under our taxation laws it is the right of the tax payer to LAWFULLY minimise their taxable income.

I think this is where C$A has a little tanty. And becomes rather confused and overbearing. Unfortunately, they can rely the wording of the Child Support (Assessment) Act. http://www.comlaw.gov.au/ComLaw/Legislation/ActCompilation1.nsf/framelodgmentattachments/4DD635996AEF61BFCA2575E6000A2E17

58  Registrar determination of adjusted taxable income
             (1)  For the purposes of assessing a parent in respect of the costs of a child in relation to a child support period, the Registrar may determine, in accordance with this section, that an amount that he or she considers appropriate is the parents adjusted taxable income for a year of income.

Note: The Registrar is required to amend an administrative assessment made on the basis of such a determination if the parents adjusted taxable income is subsequently ascertained or the Registrar makes a later determination under this section (see section 58A).
(my emphasis)

To my mind the biggest problem in developing a fact sheet will be having C$A establish standard procedures in dealing with self-employed parents.
 

This is the problem. CSA should be bound by the same laws we all are.

If they have a problem with an assessment the ATO should be the first stop towards sorting it.

Not some unaccountable agency that quite often make up their own accessment.

Is the CSA stating the ATO is incompetent.

That is the pot calling the kettle.



Why should people have to defend themself when every other dept. in the land considers they have done no wrong and yet the CSA can call them out to defend themself against questionable procedures without questions asked against their motives.

FACT sheet Self Employed Persons: All being equal

The short answer here is CS should be calculated from after tax income.

I see this as almost the whole problem ,the csa get in on the ground floor which allows them to manipulate the figures as they see fit. Right or wrong.

Radical I know but fairly obvious in my mind.
