How long have you been forced to wait?
The Child Support System continues to fail some of our nations most vulnerable families.
The system was originally set up to ensure separating families would have access to family income to support the financial needs of children, to maintain a lifestyle they were accustomed to prior to family separation.
What it really did was impose a draconian social penalty on paying parents, mostly fathers, who are forced into years of financial servitude to receiving parents, mostly mothers, who often ignore parenting orders and restrict access to their children to maximise the financial returns that they receive.
Child support is more spousal support that rewards custodial parents for acts of family violence against the noncustodial parent with policy providing financial rewards for the abuse.
Many payers are left emotionally and financially broken after years of struggling with payments that are often assessed at amounts higher than their taxable income while being provided with no contact with the very children they are expected to support.
The child support system and its tax payer funded staff contribute to the deaths of many thousands of Australian fathers, leaving our society to deal with traumatised dysfunctional children who become traumatised dysfunctional adults.
It is an unforgivable betrayal by successive governments who know well the damage caused.
We need your help to change it!

CHILD SUPPORT REFORM
Our reforms to the child support system will overhaul how child support is calculated and paid. We will remove the financial incentives that are paid to parents who withhold access to children while ensuring on-time payments for parents who have private agreements.

The Liberal National Coalition led by Scott Morrison committed $1.1 billion dollars as a package to improve mental health and domestic violence services during the pandemic.
What they government didn’t tell Australian families is that would not provide any more for crisis support for men and fathers who are victims of family and domestic violence.
The tax dollars of Australian men being spent on services that they are restricted from access because of their gender.
Another betrayal from gutless politicians who choose to ignore what’s happening in their electorates.
Do you think men and fathers should have access to the same services as women and mothers?
Here’s our #PolicySnapShot
FAMILY VIOLENCE REFORM
Our policy will enforce a zero tolerance approach to all family and domestic violence. Domestic violence legislation will be amended to ensure services and support will be provided to all victims regardless of their age, gender or sexuality.
