CSA fraudulently take money incorrectly claiming change of circumstance

July 18, 2018

My story starts way back when this crook run organisation starts. In a nut shell.

At any point in time when ive come off benifits or they have been stopped, these crooks have been ASSUMING i was working because i didnt tell them of a change in circumstances. My fault you might say. But i never went into employment at these times. So to me my circumstances havent changed. Ive gone from unemployed to still unemployed. But csa then look back 5 years in your employment history to calculate a figure ( as if your still in work) and let you rack up a massive debt behind your back.

How is this even legal. Firstly i feel they play the entrappment card which is illegal for even the police to pull off. Secondly is that fraud.

Please someone help me because otherwise this country will see the birth of a new guy faulks that will not fail.

CMS emptied my friend’s accounts twice unlawfully

July 17, 2018

The CMS were deducting payments from a friend’s wages until he lost his job. He was suffering from severe depression at the time and it was six months before he managed to get the CMS to accept that he was no longer earning. In that time he was living off a redundancy payment (less than the threshold for income tax). After another three months he got some one-off consultancy work which gave him a lump sum. He still takes a small monthly wage from that. The CMS did not accept his changes in income and emptied his bank account last November to pay arrears. Since he found dealing with them so difficult due to his mental health problems, he nominated his lawyer as his representative. The lawyer has tried to resolve the matter and has both provided them with tax returns and wage slips, and submitted a complaint but the CMS do not communicate with him effectively and send contradictory letters. My friend has just had his account emptied again. How can we get through to the CMS that his income is not what they think so they now owe him money? There is only so much his mental heath team can do if he continues to be persecuted by a state agency. Any help would be very welcome.

CSA keep taking more money so I’ll probably be better off on JSA

July 16, 2018

I don’t mind paying but your taking to much.im not on the birth cirtificate I don’t see the child it’s a joke. I was paying 220 a month now they want nearly 400 a month. My bills are more than I have left.only get 300 less signing on .Well probably be better of signing on .it’s just unbelievable.

CMS are going to bankrupt me and they don’t care

July 15, 2018

ELP NEEDED – I have been bulldozed and bullied by the CMS stating that I owe x amount of money a week, due to them taking my earnings from HMRC however last year I had just become Self-employed and my accountant only just submitted my end of year accounts. So what are they basing their information on? Being self employed I have a lot of outgoings and I responded to the CMS by supplying them with my monthly budget I can only afford to keep up my normal maintenance weekly payments and not the extra amount of arrears on top.

I phone the CMS to tell them this and they said send in your accounts. Which I did via special delverly with a spread sheet of my budget and outgoings. A few weeks passed and I had no reply to my letter, just 3x letters sent on June 29 by arriving on July 5th stating that they have proceeded with an DEO (deductions form Earnings Order) Collect and pay. Last time they bullied me with collecting arrears it lead to my bankruptcy in 2015, which was very distressing and devastating. I lost all my assets. Which in the end was my car and any value of my ex-s house. If they proceed again I will end up bankrupt, depressed and it will destroy everything I had built up over the last 3 years as it will lead into my debt, and depressing and working 24/7 trying to stay afloat.

This is causing me a lot of stress in my life and with my new partner and the CMS are not listening to any reason and don’t care. My last conversation with the CMS, they stone walled me and said: “Thats our decision and its final and you cant appeal”. Surely I can do something about it? If don’t have the money I can’t pay. Does anyone know what else I can do in this situation?? Would a Lawyer help? Does anyone know of any legal or know what my rights are? Who can I turn too?

Can I claim backdated CSA even though my daughter is an adult now?

July 5, 2018

Not sure if there is anything i can do. My daughter is 23 now and her father never paid a penny towards her up bringing. I struggled bringing her up on a low wage,i found out recently that he had been living the high life. He is a professional poker player so gets thousands of pounds a year. If the CSA had of had more details about him years ago they could have been taking payments. I only ever recieved one payment which was a small amount,not even £10. I would like to know if there is legally any way of claiming back dated maintenance.

I lost my job so ex has gone to CSA and having new man adopt my kids

June 30, 2018

I split from my wife two and a half years ago but we stayed married for the sake of our girls until she met her very wealthy new partner, whose wife had died. I was paying her directly every month, for much of the time more than what the minimum CSA suggested (at the time I was on £40k).

I lost my job in February, but still made the March payment. I explained to her that when I was back in work I would resume the payments, but she has gone to the CSA and they are now taking 40% of the minimum wage I am earning in temporary roles.

She has claimed to have an income of £139 a month from benefits, but is actually a company director living in a massive house, whilst I am living back with my parents.

She has got the council working on him legally adopting my girls and I really don’t know where I stand with anything at all right now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

CSA can’t see that self-employed ex is clearly lying to them

June 29, 2018

I have 3 children with my ex partner, he never paid a penny in maintenance for 5yrs. I decided to go through the csa, he pays me £30 a month. Hes self employed & claims he only earns £66 a week, so he pays the flat rate. How stupid can the csa be in thinking that a person self employed would go out to work for £66 a week & also be able to afford to pay for an extension on there house.

Ex avoids CSA with fraudulent documents and nothing is done about it

June 28, 2018

I tried getting child support from my sons dad when I lived  in London 2002-2013. But even though he was working  I always got a reply back saying he owes 0. This was because he would use different ni numbers I was to find out. They had his name dob and address but still wasn’t enough. I then moved to Denmark and the government here tried to find to pay child support through them but again nothing. I wonder if the csa has gotten any better with con artist like him ? He’s never paid anything , he’s a fraudulent person on other things . Fake passport etc. I did let the police and court system know when I went to court to be allowed to take my son to Denmark. But they never did anything . He’s always had access to my son but never done anything about it. How he can get away with not paying for a child for over 15 years is mind boggling.

Partner’s ex won’t pay and CMS aren’t helping the matter

June 21, 2018

I’m writing in desperation to seek your help in regards to a huge outstanding Child Maintenance Service case between my partner and her ex.

Around 5 year ago they parted company, and ever since, the payments he has been expected to make for the wellbeing of his children have been sporadic at best.

My partner and I have been together for 18 months now and in that time he has been absent from the boys life for lengthy periods of time and has contributed very little. When he has contributed it’s been in cash and less than the already reduced amount agreed between mother and father.

The CMS are aware and there is a case number outstand. The last outstanding debt amount communicated was circa £11,000. I count an additional £2,500 has been missed since that amount was provided to him and my partner.

The CMS recently took him to court where he lied, telling the court he was paying my partner directly and regularly. Previous to this he told my partner that he wasn’t earning even though we have seen many pictures on social media showing him enjoying nights out with friends and highlighting his new clothing purchases. As a further example, he was recently at Park Life festival yet still failed to provide any payment for his children.

Luckily for my partner I earn a good salary. At the moment I’m footing the bill to ensure their two children do not go without and to make sure our own daughter (7 months old) also gets the best we can possibly afford. Once my partner has completed her maternity leave, she will seek out a new role and go back into full time work. Until then though, the CMS payments that should be made, would be providing my partner with additional income so she doesn’t feel like she has to ask me all the time for money to pay for the boys school trips, football clubs etc.

To add insult to injury, there have been times when he turned up to our property and threatened my partner not to mention the numerous text and voicemails of the same malicious content when she prompts him that his children need income from their father too. Raising this again only today, my partner was met with more shouting down the phone saying he wasn’t paying for swimming lessons for his kids (I had advised her to speak to him about paying directly for the children’s needs rather than into her bank as a way of compromise).

This cannot go on. The CMS have already had over 24 months on this case. If my partner had remained a single mum she would have more than likely lost her home, car and job, all through ensuring their children were fed, clothed and had a roof over their head. Like many single mothers in the same position, she would have then been forced into claiming benefits, something she has never done and never intends to do.

I’m not sure what I expect you to do, but as stated this is now an act of desperation. I do not want my daughter, my home, my partner or my ‘step’ children having to go through this constant upset and torment because someone at the CMS isn’t moving fast enough and the Police are unwilling to ‘stop’ him from coming round here until he actually COMMITS an act of crime.

Where is the safety of good innocent people? People that pay taxes? Where is the justice for a mother who is constantly threatened when she tries to do the right and just thing by her boys?

I look forward to your reply. I hope you can at least provide some comfort or guidance as a minimum to help us get things moving.
