Mark Miller now in private practice

Filed under: Child Support — JohnPotter @ 4:07 pm

Hello John

I understand you are the owner and administrator of Menz.org.nz. My name is Mark Miller and I am a practising barrister and have been a child support review officer for IRD for over 12 years. My work with the IRD is highly regarded by the department and my name is mentioned regularly in the Menz website for my work as a review officer.

I am leaving IRD as a review officer & intend to utilise my years of experience & knowledge as a review officer and undertake private work in the child support area. (more…)

Politicians frightened to admit fathers are vital

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — MurrayBacon @ 12:35 pm

Conspiracy of silence on value of marriage: Politicians frightened to admit fathers are vital, says top family lawyer. Supporting marriage has become a ‘no go area’ for our politicians says Baroness Deech.

She says an absence of fathers is ‘harming’ the next generation of children. Politicians are ‘too afraid’ of offending cohabiting partners or single parents.

Maximum percentage of CS tax based on PAYE income

Filed under: Child Support,General — Had_Enough @ 2:14 am

Hi All
I remember hearing somewhere that IRD CS aren’t allowed to take more than 25% of a liable parents income per month. Can anyone confirm if that’s true or not? If this is so is it based on gross or nett income? The other thing I was wondering is about arrears? Is arrears regarded as a completely different tax or should child support + arrears combined also have a maximum per month total for the liable parent. The reason I ask is because on the 1st of April my assessment will be $1750 per month + arrears of 250 per month. I have been told that there is no way they will accept less than 250 per month for arrears.The total figure of 2000 per month will be more than a third of my nett income so I’ll either have to give up the house or stop eating. Does anyone out there know what the maximum they can take is as a percentage of monthly or yearly income including arrears. Thanks guys.

Paternity testing when father is deceased or not available

Filed under: General,Law & Courts — Karl M McDonald @ 4:30 am

Paternity testing is carried out as a proof of biological relations between a child and an alleged father. In a normal case, obtaining a sample from the said father is as simple as a swab from the mouth. If the alleged parent is deceased however, the entire process is a bit more complicated. Fortunately, it is still possible to find out the truth even if this is the case.

CYF, do they do anything useful??

Filed under: Child Support,Gender Politics,General,Law & Courts,Sex Abuse / CYF — Had_Enough @ 1:13 pm

OK, this is probably a rhetorical question and I would imagine that the answer is ‘no they are completely useless’ , but my daughter is at risk and I don’t know where to turn.

Here we go again …..

Once again a man dies and the headline is about his wife and child. Typical feminist journalism at it’s finest.
