    My partner may have committed fraud against Centrelink by claiming the single parent pension while we were together. Am I liable for any conviction? And what would happen if she states that I knew and went along with it?

    For your sake let's hope she has not defrauded Centrelink with your help.

    If you did anything to help her commit fraud, you are also guilty of fraud. If you are a cleanskin with no priors, you may end up with a fine and good behaviour bond. If your record is not good, jail time along with fine is possible.

    Did you know about what she was doing? Did you have any involvement in the fraud?
