Hello,

Would anyone have any advise on attempting to take ones superannuation as an “asset” for unpaid CSA debt? Especially in a case were they pay $35 per fortnight as of recently which stops CSA taking assets. However this is on top of the fact CSA have never found anything in his name, his entire family assist hiding his income which is approximately $180,000 annually but as no trace and a different state nothing has ever eventuated! Many ATO and CSA flags of the facts no tax returns have ever been actioned in 16 years to no avail. The child is now 19 with a current debt without updated reflections of doing tax returns is currently just under $20,000. I know he holds a super of approximately $150,000. Super feels like the only way our child will ever receive what they were entitled.

Any advice would be great

sadly I don't fancy your chances.

When one parent is overwhelmed with the desire to avoid payment, they're gonna succeed
