I totally agree with you!my partner pays his ex over $100 a wk and we know the kids get nothing,they come to us with crappy clothes,no shoes etc.And then I only get $14 a wk from my Ex.The system is just not fair.
That is just crazy I used to have a friend aswell that her ex was on the dole and getting cash jobs and he had 3 kids with her and I dont think she was getting anymore than 50 bucks for the 3 maybe not even that it was something ridiculous..
These days 7 bucks would just buy a loaf of bread and milk..
I hope you get it sorted rissy I feel for mums doing it on there own it is not easy and sure isnt cheap..
The ppl that sort all that stuff out prob arnt in your situation and wouldnt have a clue cos if I was working there I sure wouldnt give a single parent a measly 7 dollars, and who cares if the ex is on centrelink he/her wanted a child so now they have to live with it and support that child till he/she is old enough to support them selves..
All the best rissy x
