I am a parent in a blended family. As a parent who receives child support and now repartnered with someone who pays child support, I can assure you that it is equally frustrating from both sides. The system is so ridiculously complicated I have found it a rare occurrence that even those who have answered our many, many calls know what is going on or how to explain it adequately. The system is merely a calculator to work out who owes what to whom and that is all, don't ask them to deal with any problems that arise, because it is ineffectual and ill-equipped to do so. Serious review and reform is needed.
