Dear Sirs,

I have a very complicated Centrelink benefits question:

Many years ago, I married a widow who had an 18-year-old daughter. After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a  number of times, and he fell in love with my step-daughter. My father eventually married her.

As a result, my step-daughter legally became my step-mother and my father my son-in-law.

My father’s wife (also my step-daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband  of my step-daughter’s mother.

This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father. And, as you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the  mother of my father’s wife.

Therefore, it appears that I am also my wife’s grandchild.

A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my father’s brother-in-law, the step-son of my father’s  wife, and my uncle.

My son is also my step-mother’s brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my  own grandfather.

In light of  the above mentioned, I would like to know the following:

Does my son,  who is also my uncle, my father’s son-in-law, and my step-mother’s brother fulfill the requirements for receiving childcare benefits?

Sincerely yours, 






Of course you qualify Mohamed!

We have arranged to start mailing cheques to all of you, just as soon as you arrive here in Australia.


Our Sincere Regards,

Bill Shorten & Sarah  Hansen-Young
