CSA Bolton is a disgrace
July 12, 2010
My daughter’s “father” is what is known as a job hopper by the CSA and yet they do nothing to speed up their change of circumstance process in order to minimise and reduce the benefits of evading payment. My ex has only ever paid £1000 of a £9000 arrears since 1998 in the meanwhile he’s continued to father children all over the place!
Unfortunately for me my case is clerical and “processed” in Bolton, (I know you feel my pain)! In any case it has taken 5 months to process a CoC and submit a DoE! My ex-partner simply leaves his place of employment when he gets a whiff the CSA are on his tail again. He owes over £8000 (which I am unlikely to ever see). My daughter is 20 years old but I refuse to give up. It’s only right that Dead Beat Dads should provide for their children. It’s not like I frog marched him to bed with a gun at his temple! He and his chav family refused to have anything to do with my daughter when she was born and he only saw her for the first time when she was 7 years old but still never supported her emotionally or financially. He likes the title “dad” but never quite lives up to it. In fact he’ll leave paid employment in order to avoid paying maintainence to her. Like you, I refuse to give up. I did it on my own for 19 years I’m sure I can go for another 19!
As for CSA Bolton…THEY OUGHT TO BE SHUT DOWN! How dare they consider themselves competent enough to manage cases? They couldn’t manage their way out of an open door! AS you probably already know, they are a private complany contracted by the CSA to process clerical CSA cases. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU OR YOUR CHILD. Instead they employ incompetent, pre-pubescent, dregs from the bottom of the gene pool, to assess cases and make important decisions regarding people’s lives and that’s if you’re lucky, if not, your case is resigned to a filing cabinet never to experience the light of day ever again.
I’ve just found out, following numerous complaints and intervention from my MP, that my case is being transferred to Falkirk! Hooraah!
My ex has a comittal hearing in a few months and will have to explain why he has left employment once again. He would be within his rights to respond “because I can, your Honor”, considering the lack of serious attempt to obtain funds from DBD’s, made by that complete debacle, otherwise known as the CSA!
Now my case has been transferred from Bolton, I have no guarantee that my case will have a successfull outcome but at least I now have a fighting chance. Although I am by no means at the end of the road, my advice to anyone suffering in the hands of the CSA (especially CSA Bolton) is to complain, complain, complain, to anyone who will listen, in particular your M.P. It’s about time the problems with CSA were addressed once and for all.
I’ll keep you updated about the committal hearing when it happens. I hoping it will have a postive outcome, (either payment of the arrears or he’ll be picking up soap in the shower cubicles for the next six weeks)!
