Attention any parents who are liable to pay Child Support and have estimated their income more than once during a Child Support year:
You are being assessed on a total income GREATER than what you actually earn. IRD are failing to apply a specific Section of the Child Support Act to their calculations and this is resulting in every parent who estimates their income more than once during a year being OVER-ASSESSED for Child Support liability. I am currently in the process of legal action to force IRD to change their process and to repay all overpayments.
If you are or have previously been a paying parent and have estimated your income more than once within a year please contact me at
