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

Is there any way to reclaim the money the CSA falsely took?

I have recently found out that my daughter had been kicked out of home by my ex wife when she was 16 . I contested the csa decision to take payments from me , as part of my divorce settlement was that if I did not contest the divorce and provided for my kids out f my own pocket she would not involve the CSA.

She remarried a couple of weeks after the divorce and soon after I started getting letters from the Csa demanding payments . I informed them of the divorce agreement and was told it wasn’t worth the paper it was written on!!!

When I told them it was passed in a court of law , I was told “they were the law” and if I didn’t pay I would be imprisoned ! I contested this for five years , until they finally took me to court and got a detachment of earnings , taking 40% of my wages .

During this time I lost contact with my children , because of the problems it caused with my ex and her husband . I hadn’t seen my kids for 5 years, my daughter now 21 and my son 27 , and was told by my daughter she had not lived at home since she was 16.

I have payed nearly £20.000 , th total arrears being over £21000. My daughter has been claiming benefits since she was 16 and received no financial support from my ex , yet when I informed the csa , they told me that because I had not told them at the time they wouldn’t do anything . When I pointed out there rule that states my ex wife should have informed them my daughter had left home I was ignored.

They are still takin payments and have told me , if I don’t pay , I will be arrested and imprisoned . I am in debt and living in temporary accommodation , is there anything I can do to reclaim the money I have paid?

Mistakes

CSA tells me I am £25,000 in arrears but can’t explain why

I have a debt collection agreement to pay arrears originally £11000 which is now £8000. I am unaware of how these arrears came about so contacted the CSA in April, 2014.

After months of contact and getting my MP involved I have today received a letter with no breakdown but now my arrears are £25752 ????? I spoke to a lady at the CSA who had dealt with the complaint and had sent the letter but she couldn’t explain how the arrears were no so much nor was she aware of the debt collection agency.

How on earth can we deal with these people it is a shambles. should I go to a solicitor ?

Complaints

I now have to pay CSA dodging, sorry excuse of a man

My daughter is now 18years old. She lived with me until earlier this year when she moved to the Glasgow area where here father lives. My daughter left school in December 2013 when she was still only 17 years old and moved in with her father in March 2014.

Her father and I separated when she was 1 year old. Until she turned 16 years old her father successfully dodged the CSA by quitting jobs and moving house if the CSA ever caught up with him. I on the other hand worked full time, and in 2006 started a successful career as a civil servant.

I worked extremely hard to get where I am and missed out a lot of the time on my daughter growing up and still encouraged her contact with her father every weekend. The CSA were no real help to me- it was a financial struggle the older my daughter got.

My daughter started a non-advanced course in college in Renfrewshire in August 2014, totalling in an 8 month break from education and turning 18years old in that time too. You can imagine my disappointment when I received a letter from the CSA informing me that the dutiful father had put a claim into the CSA against me.

So it has been decided that I have to pay father of the year £2786.05 a year as long as my daughter is in education. So father of the year has decided he wants a direct debit arrangement set up on a monthly basis.

The sad, sorry excuse of not just a father but a man too is now laughing all the way to the bank with my hard earned cash – I will point out that he was eventually made to pay me a grand total of £512 in my daughters final year at school- a tiny fraction of what I will now have to pay, given I had no financial help during her schooling prior to this.

So my experience of the CSA is extremely negative. My struggle feels like it was for nothing and just because I eventually got a successful job which included a promotion I worked hard for, I am actually being punished.

Her father is a waster and never wanted a full time or well paid job purely to avoid paying for his child. Completely disgusting attitude from the CSA to me, delving into my business eg my earnings and details of my future pension. I am absolutely shocked of the CSAs treatment to me and now treating my daughters father as the poor victim. Dispicable!!!!
