Change Child Support Laws

35 Signatures Goal: 100

The Honourable Attorney General Mr P. Ruddock, The below signatories have committed to appeal for changes to the child support system. These changes are primarily focused at altering the methods used for calculating child support. The current method unfairly prejudices against the payer by removing any opporunity of making a decent life for themselves and their children, after relationship breakdown, by forcing payments that in most cases forces them to survive on next to no income. The objection process and financial hardship rules need an overhaul also to at least take into consideration ALL financial aspects and not fob off some expenses as ordinary. These changes would be greaty appreciated by all paying parents and with luck may even have the positive effect of encouraging ALL paying parents of taking up their responsibilities to provide for their children and not avoid those responsibilities by hiding away.

    Current system is severely flawed with too many loop holes for parents wanting unfair financial gain from the non-custodial parents who are dying to be in their childrens lives but are shut out unjustifiably AND it allows other non-custodial parents to avoid their responsibility by not chasing up claims about cash in hand work or investigating complaints properly. NONE of this is in the children's best interests which Child Support is MEANT to be for.
