Who wants to be dictated to by the State on how you support your children what, how and when?
Whilst many views float around arguing for and against child support, most decent fathers and parents would argue the issue is not whether or not they wish to support their children, but rather the often unfair conditions imposed upon them.
Simply, it's an attack on the nature of a father's freedom and how he best wishes to raise and support his children in the many different ways a responsible father can, which are often more effective and benefical to a child than any 'slap-bang' instrument of government and statism can ever be.
For a father going through separation/divorce, experiencing the loss of family and children, horrendous false allegations, litigation, uncertainty of where your children are and how they are doing, often causes ill health, work and life instability in so many ways. Also, the effects from not having a fully functioning and emotionally present Dad in a child's life can be equally, if not more devestating as their development can be hindered considerably.
Then if that isn't bad enough, along comes an assessment from the Child Support Agency (CSA) for an outlandish sum of money based on your capacity to work at the highest rate when you were fit and able and on fire, which is possibly a stark contrast to where your financial position is today, or will be in the future if you are unable to recover from the upheaval of a traumatic separation that's often compared to a fate worse than death.
From 2006 CSA powers in Australia have increased to not only garnish your wages, but directly withdraw from bank accounts any amount they deem appropriate, siezing assets of any sort to pay the often highly questionable and unjust debts. As Fathers are assaulted with such draconian measures, one can only feel a sense of dictatorship giving rise to a totalitarian society not a free Australia causing fathers to unite and fight for their rights and freedom.
As there are many issues surrounding child support and the effects upon fathers, children and families,
Something I found on the internet
"To a large extent we have had very little face-to-face contact. Normally, less than one per cent of our contact with separated parents and third-party carers has been face to face. There were some unfortunate customer aggression incidents that did occur that prompted us to review these arrangements"
No s...t I wonder why. don't your good honest employees like getting beaten up when they cause hurt and pain. Don't they like getting back what they deliver.
your staff didn't want me to produce information and blocked it for a reason. Am I right Campbell? They had already made their one sided decision for the assessment right in the very beginning so there was no need for me to provide anything. Am I right Campbell? They were going to give the mother whatever she wanted. Am I right. Open your mouth Campbell.
On the 10/2/2016 and on the 19/01/2016 and again on the 8/3/2016 I requested the following information.
How many woman are employed by the child support agency.
How many men are employed by the child support agency
I would like the same information for the child protection services and Centerlink.
I received a response that had nothing to do with my request. Why did your staff send me that email. It is meaningless?
Why does your agency employ these stalling techniques when people are requesting information from you?
Do you have something to hide? Are you trying to hide something? Answer.
I have put in a complaint with the relative authority in regards to your departments failure to provide the correct FOI information in a timely manner. Congratulations.
You seem to have all the answers to everything except when I am asking the questions. Campbell cant you agency respond correctly and in the same time frame that they require me to response i.e. 9 days and 3 days.
These are just bloody blocking techniques are they not? You made my response time short so that I cannot provide a proper defence then you delay matters to a ridiculous level when I want answers to slow things down. Why?
Why are you so silent. Your agency causes grief and harm to fathers and you head this agency. Why do you do this? Why do you cause men to kill themselves. Again why do you deny children fathers? Why don’t you respond? Don’t get subordinates to talk for you. Open your mouth.
You are silent too. You want to stop family violence then get rid of the root cause. Remove the incentive for woman to screw their partners over. That incentive is the child support agency and the family court system. You put men’s backs to the wall and they react that way. You government says you are trying to stop family violence.....but your laws and interpretation of the laws are part of the problem. Is it not? Are you that stupid that you cannot see that as being a contributing factor?
Remember Campbell you cannot enslave the sole of someone that is dead.
don't waste your time dealing will the individuals at the bottom flood those at the top with complaints and don't let up. crash their gender discriminatory system
send them lots of emails. as the head of this mob they need to be kept abreast of the havoc they are causing with peoples lives
send them emails lots of emails
Why do you allow the child support agency to exist.
You answer this question Prime Minister, don’t pass it on the very people that are causing the problems and allowing them to respond.
Why is this agency allowed to harass fathers and turn their worlds upside down? Who the bloody hell do these people think they are and who gives them the right to hurt people in the way they do? Why are you allowing this to continue?
I am going to ask this question again because I haven’t received an answer to it.
How many men commit suicide because of the direct involvement of this agency? How many men does this agency kill on average per week through their involvement? How many children don’t have fathers because of this agency?
You have no bloody idea, do you Prime Minister? You know it is a problem, you know people are killing themselves because of this agency but you do nothing Prime Minister. Am I correct?
You go on about domestic violence on TV but I haven’t seen you do anything about this. Are woman’s lives more important than men’s lives? Is it okay for men to die Mr Prime Minister?
I recently received a letter from a CSA manager dated 15/2/2016. Clearly very little consideration has been given to the points raised, and this letter is just a brush off. This is a concern and shows a pattern which one can liken to that seen in the assessment.
In this letter I was directed to speak to people further down the chain if I had any further enquiries. Effectively what she was saying was that I am going to respond with dribble which you must accept and if you don’t like it talk to someone else because I don’t want to know.
•Why does this agency use these information blocking techniques to prevent effective communication? We have seen this is the assessment when I was blocked from presenting information.
•Why don’t you answer the questions and engage in conversation in relation to the questions?
My emails were directed at the Prime Minister, Ministers and The Head of the Child Support Agency. I get brushed off to this manager and she brushes me off to subordinates.
1.Why don’t the people in charge of this agency take responsibility for their decisions in relation to this agency? Why do you brush people off?
In response to the letter
I have serious concerns about the response and I question whether due consideration has been given to the issues. It is my opinion that this response is a meaningless brush off with numerous errors. Am I correct? Your letter is designed to complicated/confuse matters in the hope that it will become too hard and I will go away. I’m not going anywhere. There are serious issues with the CSA
You say the agency takes the welfare of “parents extremely seriously”. Your agency is the source of the hurt, and in some cases, suicides.
1.How can we take your comments seriously when your agency cont
............This letter continues but is too long for this space. The prime ministers, minister social services, minister human services and Cathryn Campbells address are all on the internet........SEND the lovely people LOTS of emails and demand answers and do so regularly The more people do that will cause this unjust system to fail. It will goo into overload and crumble. CC them all i.........
You can still go privite with your x even with CSA
Unless she has asked CSA to collect the money for her ?
CSA will send you a statement to tell you how much you have to pay throu privite aggreement and you pay itstraight to her
Not to sure why she was forced into the csa line unless the kids are over 8 then she can go to CSA and tell them to get the money for her as she wont be on gov hand outs
Advance Australia Fkn fair.
Would be interested to hear if anyone else has been threatened by her?
I'm in the process of going down this road at the moment so don't take on the CSA GIANT cause you are taking on the government instead take on the individual that is lying and intimidating you
Once one goes down then the rest will think twice before they bend and break the rules whenever they feel like
Please send all your stories of discrimination, abuse & harrasment by the CSA to http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/feedback.aspx
Surely if we flood them they will start to consider investigating.
Even send them to 60 Minutes 60Minutes@nine.com.au
Child support is a tragedy, just like the stolen gen, the blacks without a vote and many more. Your letter is quite correct men and women deeply affected by this need to make more noise.. to local MPs to papers and in rallies. Nelson Mandela continued to write letters for many years before he was released. cmon people get up and get angry.
Make no mistake - they are criminals. DO NOT talk to them or EMail or Message them... EVER. Get on GOV.AU web site and ONLY go through that. THey say shit like "Oh we can't SEND you documents through that etc etc etc" but when they HAVE to they can of course!! Then, you access it when YOU need to and when YOU have the best space and clarity and strength mentally....
Good luck (I have been dealing with for 15 years now and have another 12 to go!!!)
Don't give up ever on the hope that your kids can grow up and come back one day. I have grieved again and again the loss of my children except they are still (thankgod) on this earth, so every new photo that friends can sneak from social media is a treasure to me but I grieve again after looking at their faces. I keep positive and believe that while there is a future and my kids and I are in that future then something will bring us back together one day. I see it as though if I wasn't here and gave into the grief then my kids will never know the truth and will never have a chance to have their mum back. I also believe that if I want something to change or something to happen I have to set a goal and chip away until I'm on the path that will get me there. Some days just outright suck, the pain is almost unbearable but the future is still there and my kids will be there too. As for CSA and the so called legislation they are the reason my ex destroyed my kids relationship with me, he wanted money and has been relentless in his pursuit to lie and get as much of my money that he possibly can. Without CS I would have all my kids with me right now because it's all about the money to him. Keep your chin up, tread water as long as it takes you to survive, one day you'll be swimming wherever you want to.
Justice and fairness is the answer.
Look after your son. All the best x
No TV station will help you they're all part of the same evil. All this "deadbeat fathers" and political correctness/ homo agenda is all a govtard maggot psyops. All designed to destroy family's /morals/faith. They can tell you tomorrow's weather and economic forecasts and trends, but the can't see people committing suicide , children stolen, people killing each other ,year after year, for what??? Because of unequal rights given to one parent over the other, that's is why. You want ACA ? They report on more important issues like marriage equality. So don't bother with those maggots. Tune out from this social engineering. Don't drink , don't play up,don't take drugs, to get through.
Stay strong and healthy cause you will need to be to get through this. Your life will always be harder from now on. Cause the system wants to destroy you.
Just ask the 21 fathers who comitt suicide each weak or the women who are killed, ask yourself a question , who benifits from this???.
Maybe if we flood them with stories from multiple people, we could temp them, nothing to loose http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/feedback.aspx
Maybe someone who has a genuine case can present it to Current Affairs or similar tv program. Government agencies need some pressure from the media to take action.
I would suggest that www.childsupportconsulting.com.au is way more legitimate than the CSA itself. CSA actions are beggar belief! How anyone who works for them can lay straight in bed at night. The human misery they cause way outweighs their purpose.
NZ taxes you from the year before so it can take time to reduce the taxes however if you contract as a company to an employer you can move your income into other places than just your personal accounts.
IRd cannot rape a companies bank accounts
The Payment goes through IRD .Also any advice regarding tax for child support.
