With the changes in the Childcare payments 2018 what does it look like for single parents- do they combine your income with your ex to calculate the rate? My child's dad earns a bit less than me but she is in my care full time. I'm tempted to get him to sign up to the new Centrelink changes so that we get more of a return and so that he pays straight away rather than me chasing the money from him. Any advice would be appreciated.
