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 »

Advice

What does the CSA base payments on?

Can you advise what the CSA use as a basis for my ex partners earnings?

His contracted earnings is around 8K less per annum to what he actually pulls in i.e. on his P60 and this obviously makes a huge difference to what he has to pay for our child.

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

Complaints

I’m sure the CSA is paid to fob people off

My ex is self employed as a painter and decorator, I know he earns anything between £75-£100 a day.

He has been paying me maintenance to the tune of £38 a week for two children for many years.

He lives with his girl friend who ISNT a high flier and they both regulary go abroad and we arnt talking Spain we are talking Cuba and Jamaica.

Made numerous buys for the home, new suite for the lounge and has a drug habit too.

I’ve contacted the CDA numerous times last time today where I was told if they call him and he says he hasn’t had a change in finances then there isn’t anything they can do yet he gets paid half cash in his hand and the other half into his girlfriends bank account. I’m giving them the information they need but fob me off telling ME to call the inland revenue which I have also done in the past with no avail.

It’s my girls who are suffering and dipping out on the things they should require. Without “mum” having to keep saying “I haven’t got the money”.

The government needs to step up and investigate these so called employed at the CSA because I’m sure they get paid to fob people off, I guess it would be a different story if the ex was on a contract and paid monthly as it’s easier for the CSA to deal with.
