Currently over 230,000 Australian children are owed over $1.2 Billion in outstanding Child Support. Individual debts range from $300 to anywhere close to $500,000. Today's announcement by the Attorney General to not cut funds to community legal groups assists individuals pursuing these debts. However, a Parlimentary Review specifically directed at the 'Child Support debt' and the subsequent privacy laws, failures of the Australian Tax Department and Child Support Agency's obligation to collect, inter-departmental communication in relation to debt-cases, safety of children and primary parents pursuing these debts is urgently needed. The Parlimentary Inquiries of 2014/2015 availed none of the recommendations to correct these specific failings. In pursuing this action it would be helpful hear from as many current outstanding debt cases or anyone who would like to assist. :idea: :idea:
