Ground 8 (Her Income)
Just wondering if anyone out there has ever had any success with an Admin Review based on the increased earning capacity of the custodial parent. The custodial parent in my case has recently received a rather large inheritance and is doing well for herself while I am still expected to pay her about $1500 per month in Child Support (for 1 child) which I can’t afford. I believe that under the new regime the custodial parents income is also taken into account. I would appreciate any tips on this as I want to do an Admin Review on her based on Ground 8 and her improved financial situation. Thanks in advance.
Ground 8 – The child support assessment doesn’t take into account the income, earning capacity, property and financial resources of either parent or child (or children)
You can use this ground if you feel the child support assessment is unfair because it doesn’t reflect the true income, financial position or earning capacity of either parent or the child.
One party’s financial position has changed significantly.
Assets which are capable of earning income aren’t doing so.
