Sorry, but can you elaborate a little on a few issues:
- How your debt arose if you have been paying child support for 10 years?
- When was child support first claimed against you?
- How did it come about that you ended up paying for school fees and for computers, but were not up to date in your child support payments.

I am lost.
You were paying child support to the father and during that time you accumulated a debt of $9,000.00?
Are you asking if you can avoid paying it?
I did read it but need clarification that while you were paying the child support the dent arose.
The reason being your superannuation is not clear either but that is not the issue.
It is whether you were assesses at the time and you owe the money?
Ok they are deeming that as income.
Did you object at that time with them for that new assessment?
Have you spoken to your ex about him waiving it?
At the time you were assessed did you fight it?
I completely sympathise with you, but being a long time you cannot object to it now.
Even bankruptcy is not an option with Child support.
If he agrees to waive it then they can wipe it but he has to tell them and provide the request in writing,.
