Corrupt CMS doing everything they can to get more money
August 9, 2016
Oh where do I start. When my ex wife asked me to leave, every month for the last 6 months of our marraige. I eventually agreed. We agreed as a maintenence payment I would pay the mortgage. After a few months I went to dig out the paperwork so I could negoiate a new fix term deal and found that it had gone down by £200 for the last 2 months. When I asked where the money had gone I was told it had been spent on a holiday. This happened again and again I had paid over what I agreed. So I went to the CSA and asked how much I should be paying which was considerably less.
So I told her that I would not pay her anymore until I had recouped what she had taken from me. So then she reports me to the CSA for non payment. When I explained to them they were not interested as they would only look at it from when they were contacted. We argeed for months and I ended with a DEO which in the first month left me well under the 60% as my employer made a mistake. I then lost my job and had varying wages they could not work out what I owed. I then went self employed and still had varying wages.
I offered to phone every month with what I had earned to pay the right amount but they would not do this. I went up and down from owing nothing to £95 per week. They continously forgot to account for my 2 children I have with my current wife. Eventually after complaining about the befast office I spoke to a man who agreed that if I provided my year end figures then they would calculate the next year from that and I would pay at this rate. I had during this sought a court order for contact with my children as the ex would stop me from seeing them on any argument we had. Due to the nature of my work it was agreed that I would provide a schedule of which weekends I would have the children and when I had them in holidays. So life was ok. Then the change from CSA to CMS happened.
They re assessed my income and put it at £2500 over what it actually was. I was not allowed to appeal as it was not more than 20%!!! So I now pay a rate based on an amount I dont actually earn and the agreement I previously had is out the window. We then dispute the staying contact. Me and my ex disagreed on how many nights I have them. I have produced the court order and the calendars she has been sent with the weekends and other times I will have my kids as per the court order I have got and this, even though she has not produced any evidence that I have them less, is not good enough.
I had worked out what I should be paying, with the discount, as I will not over pay her as I wont get it back. So as I wont pay what they say I should pay, even though she gets money from me weekly, they have put me in their collection service, charging me 20% and her 4%. Therefore making money from me and her that should go to my children. Now also as they have re assessed my income, which I can not appeal, they have back dated this and I am now over £1000 in arrears. I have continuosly asked them to take me to court so a judge can decide but they refuse to.
So I am all of a sudden massively in arrears, am underpaying as they wont accept my evidence, even the evidence from her saying its fine to go with what I have told them for over night stays. Have another DEO given to someone I dont actually work for!!! I give up with these people. They are clearly out to make money from people as everytime I have attempted to speak with them, I am over spoken and have words put in my mouth so that they can get their own way. I have never not paid, always responded to phone calls and letters. Not once have I tried to hide from them. This month so far I have 8 letrers from them!!!! 8!!!! This is yet another corrupted government department and there seems to be nothing NWC can do to stop them!!!
