Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting).
Our political party is also known as “The Equal Parenting Party”.
(Note: Please click Summary for a full list of web-pages contained in our web-site).
The Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) is an Australian political party registered with the Australian Electoral Commission.
The party’s membership mainly consists of divorced and separated parents, their spouses and partners, grandparents, relatives, friends and anyone else who believes that children have a right to be cared for by both their parents.
Everyone is very welcome to join the Party – this is regardless of your marital or relationship status – i.e. whether it is of a different or same sex background.
All parents, spouses, partners grandparents, relatives, friends and any interested persons are encouraged to join our political party. We are the only political party that specifically supports family law and child support issues.
Our membership application form can be downloaded in either pdf format or MS Word format.
Membership is completely free.
We have been advised that we have passed the AEC 2015 Membership Review. We wish to give a thank you to all our members for their support. Without this support, we would not be a political party.
This is a link to George Christensen’s Committee’s “Report into the Child Support Scheme“, that was released on 21 July 2015. We are very impressed with the possibilities contained in the report.
The NCPP(EP)’s comments to the Committee, on capping child support payments, were noted in item 3.59 on page 60 of the Report:
“One witness called for the table to be drastically reduced, with an income cap introduced at $70 569 (2014 dollars), rather than at the current level of $176 423. Under such a recommendation, the maximum yearly cost of a single child in 2014 would be $11 291 (aged 0 – 12 years) or $15 878 (13+ years). (ref 43)”
ref 43. Mr John Flanagan (NCPP(EP), Committee Hansard, Sydney, 27 June 2014, p. 20.
Overall, there are 25 recommendations contained in the Report into the Child Support Scheme. We are particularly supportive of recommendations 5, 9 and 10 from that report.
We are hopeful that these three (3) recommendations and also the above comments on capping child support payments, will be adopted into the legislation.
2. Our Aim and Main Objectives.
The Aim of the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) is to:
a. Minimise government interference in decisions that affect separated families.
b. Maximise the initiative of individual parents to make those decisions.
The parents and the guardians of their children are the best people to determine what is the right thing to do for their children – not someone from either the Government or the Family Court.
b). Main Objectives.
The main objectives of the Non-Custodial Parents Party (Equal Parenting) are to:
Change Family Law legislation, so that children have the right to see both parents and be involved with their children.
Change Child Support legislation so that child support is fairer.

Too often have we heard from our local Members of Parliament that they are looking at the issues (and then not doing about the issues).
