How do we form a group?
Can the single parents group take this up? As well as the PPS issue?
It also would help in cases where the father is violent because the miscreant doesn't see any change to their day to day life and so is less likely to ramp up their violence to the mother and children. They'll just have to add years to their working life. You know, like women who raise children during their working life already have to.

And I also agree that its time to put pressure on the Gov to review the inadequacy of the CSA. The system as it stands is overly complex and I'm not sure how succesfull an overall overhaul would be, but I think we need to at least demand that there are real consequences for non payers - for example so it affects their credit rating, after all, my credit rating is shot to pieces after not being able to keep up with a couple of bills, but the ex who owes $46,000 can just keep racking the debt up and nothing happens to him.
Instead of a collection agency the CSA needs to have the same powers as the tax office, which means removing the prohibitive privacy laws that the child support avoiders manage to so easily manipulate in order not to pay.
I'm going to start working on a letter, and I intend to make an appt with my federal "member" and take it to them for a discussion. I will also send it to the other appropriate FMP's. It's gotta be done!
Hi, Can you let me know if you had any success further to this?
