AdviceWhy did the CSA ignore regulations?
After separating from my wife in Sept 2012 I agreed to give her £50 a week and take the children 2-3 time a week.
After 6 Months I decided that I need to get my social life back on track so I informed my wife that I would take the children every second weekend and every Thursday (overnight)
For some reason my wife called the CSA and told them that I have never given her money and that I take the children every second weekend only, as I have paid the £50 every week through a bank transfer I was able to prove my wife had lied so my weekly payments fell from £134 to £92 (and just because I could proof my wife lied)
The next hurdle was to prove that I took the children when I did, all the lawyers letters were ignored as my wife said no to everything I submitted in a legal deceleration.
After a year of correspondence the last step was an independent tribunal, which I had no faith in as every truth I had told was rejected my the CSA.
When the day came around for the tribunal I was 50/50 on whether to attend due to the many knocks I have taken over the year but I thought I have came this far so what do I have to lose.
After only 20 minutes in the tribunal it became clear to me that the CSA had failed to follow the regulations in that if the children stay overnight then that does count as an overnight stay, this is because the overnight stays count whether they are agreed or not.
As my complaint was that the children were staying over more than agreed they should be taken into account, to my complete surprise the tribunal agreed with me that the children do stay more than I was being given by the CSA as all overnight stays count “whether they are agreed or not” as my wife thought that overnight’s had to be agreed she had already said that the children stay more than agreed time, this meant that she could not change her story and the tribunal agreed with me.
Why the CSA ignored this regulation I have no idea, so all I can say is to any parent is to follow this through, especially if they think that agreed stays count only, as I said one year of hell was cleared up in 20 minutes.
Should this fail then go to social services who can call both parties in and help decide what is happening and draw up a document that can be sent to the CSA and used as proof.
Hopefully there might be information in this correspondence that may help some people who are being basically screwed by the CSA, don’t give up the fight for honesty, it will be hard but for me it was worth the year of knock backs to finally get justice.
MistakesI will have paid off the arrears within 400 odd years
I have been waiting years for the CSA to sort out my case. In 2010 I had a DEO for £150.48 per month. This amount is deducted from my NHS Injury Benefit which I have received since 1994 when I was pensioned out of the ambulance service.
I claim no benefits and survive on my pension and what’s left of my Injury benefit. The Nice lady at the CSA informed me today that they have treated me as self employed! My arrears according to the CSA are £30,000 so my £150.48 is £87.91 for child and £62.55 off arrears. So good news is I will have paid off the arrears within 400 odd years! Bonus!
The nice lady promised that she will ring me tomorrow. As I pointed out that CSA’s own website says that they don’t class injury benefit as income. They won’t ring back as they haven’t done for the last four years. But I will continue to ring them weekly to check progress on my case!
