Martin Jan, from CSA Birmingham, brags about going to Disney Land

Martin Jan, from the CSA in Birmingham, has sent out an ‘out of office’ reply from his email address to parents struggling to make ends meet bragging how he, and others at the CSA, are off to Disney Land in February next year.

It’s quite common to set an out of office on your email, so people emailing you know they’ll have to wait for you return to get a reply, but it’s also quite common to set a different one for internal and external emails. This way, Martin could have told parents who are unable to make ends meet financially that he’s away from the office and will reply to them on the 2nd of August, and could have told people at the CSA that he’s off to Disney Land, do they want to come along.

But no, instead Martin bragged to people who cannot afford Read more »

CSA payments are stopping me from seeing my daughter

Hello i am dealing with the csa since may last year when i found my wages short, after contacting my payroll, i was told that there was a attachment of earning against me of £147 a fortnight, thats £294 a month.

When i contacted the csa regarding this, i was told that they had been trying to contact me for sometime, i told them that i had not received any correspondence from them, and my ex partner, their client had my mobile number and address.

I also told them that i could not afford to pay that amount has i was only earning £498 a fortnight, so i was left with £351 to pay rent, gas, electric, water rates, council tax and food, plus bus fares to see my daughter, in the end i had to give up my home and move in with my partner, really before she was ready, has my rent was £450 a month on its own and having only £700 left after the money from me, leaving £250 to pay everything else, basically £62.50 a week for bills and food.

The csa told me that they would not change the amount and how i live was not their concern, getting money for my daughter was, i understood that i have to pay for my child’s upkeep, but not at the expense that i could not see her, due to not being able to afford to collect her.

I have paid in the region of £2058 in seven months, before my arrears were clear, i was paying the mother directly but found my money wasn’t always going on my daughter, but i didn’t have a my receipts or bank statements a few payments could not be confirmed.

I have recently found that you have up to two years to pay back arrears, which my partner found out during a conversation with the csa, now that she is dealing with them too, during any of my conversations with the csa, or letters from them, did they mention the two years to pay back arrears, even when i told them that they were placing me in hardship.

Mistakes

I’ve been paying for a year and 12 weeks too long

I am a widow with a 12 year old son. Before my wife was cremated the CSA got in touch with me stating i will have to pay £33.41 for my 18 year old son from my first wife. They started taking it straight away out of my wage. As soon as my son started university I rang the CSA to ask if my payments would stop. On the phone I got ahlady how said thay it would not stop till he is 20 years old and that was that .

I new it would stop at the end of august two months before his 20th . So wones a gen I rang the CSA and asked why the payments had not stopped they said I was not on the list for payments to stop he didn’t now why so he said he will check why and said it will tack a while all the checks can be made now it as been 12weeks and I have not herd nothing I have phoned CSA 4 times in the 12weeks and thay say the same thing I will have towait till they received a letter from his mother and the benefits office.

During this time i was looking at the CSA web page according to them wones a child going to university all payments should stopstop i am not 12 weeks late i am a year and 12 weeks late. Can eney one help me . Thanks
