You do not need to tell him anything. Child support services will do that for you (all the working out on how much he has to give you). And it goes on how. much he earns. I would not be giving him any information at all about what you get. Hope it helps.
Go through CSA and it’ll be done correctly. They have access to all this information
First of all, how crazy that you have to engage with him after suffering abuse from him - it’s ridiculous!!
It is just your taxable income the CSA needs to determine your level of child support - so no need to include rent assistance and FTB just the jobseeker payment is taxed. So, try to estimate what your overall taxable income will be for 19/20 - including the income from your last job.
Also, the more child support paid the less FTB you receive.
Good on you for creating a new and safe life!
Hi,, the first $17,000 or so that you earn is considered for supporting yourself. So just tell him what you get - or given that Centrelink and Childsupport are linked, those agencies should be able to get that information. Or tell him to look it up online, that you are just getting basic jobseeker payment. I'm not sure how it all works now that the jobseeker payment has doubled. I hope that you are also getting rent assistance mate. Please just be honest with him, tell him what he asks regarding your income, and then put him out of your mind. I congratulate you one your decision to keep yourself and your son safe by leaving him. Good luck xx
ps. just look on the centrelink website for calculator and you can put in info for how much you get, how much he earns, the care etc.
Thank you so much for replying me.. It was an emotional abuse, financial abuse, physical, technological abuse, spiritual abuse. etc.
He just messaged me minutes ago. We agreed previously, for sharing the child me being main carer as I got 70%.
I was a uni student that time , working part time. My earning was less than 15000. He earns 105,000. Within weeks after move out, I lost my job, which put me centalink job seeker income. No, I don't get any payments other than those two. Only , I received my first support payment of $750 for corona virus situation .
He hasn't paid any seperation payment or any child support except $750 which he paid 3 weeks ago . That was when he wanted me to care the son continuesly due to corona virus situation . I agreed for that as thinking I can keep my son in home safely as dad has to go to work in cbd and I don't have to go out.
Then he just messaged me now, saying as I kept my son for 3 weeks continuesly , he is gonna leave him 100% for me..
I feel lost, crying and shivering while typing this right now as I want my son to have both parents ..
I don't know what to do..
He is using current situation against to me....
He is a great dad to my son . My son will be lost if he hear his dad doesn't want him. We don't have anyone in Australia. My parents, all siblings are in another country , and I can not even go there now..
