Recently I have received 2 payments from child support of $400ish which has taken the amount owed by my ex to zero. He normally pays $30 a month which is direct debited from his account on centrelink payday unless he can get the money out before they can take it. As far as we know and child support know he’s not working and has told them he won’t work because it means he has to pay more child support for his 4 kids (all to different mums). I know he couldn’t afford to pay the 2 larger amounts that I received through child support as they are more than one fortnightly centrelink payment, and if I got 2 larger payments than his other exs more thank likely got larger payments to clear his debts to them too. I am wondering if anyone else has got 2 larger unexpected payments from child support and if they know where the money comes from?
