My partner has been separated from his ex (which he has 3 children to) now for 11 yrs. I’ve been with him for 9 yrs. he has always paid maitenance since they were born. Unfortunately he had been very slack and never done his tax return since separated from his ex but was still paying a great sum of child support every week. I’ve been on his case to get it done and to also contact CSA about the extreme high amount of maitenance he’s been paying considering 2 of these children are over 18 and working and the third one is 15 yrs old, working and not even living with the mother and is living with his older brother.
So 3 weeks ago he contacted CSA and the guy he spoke to was very rude. When my partner informed the guy that neither of the children are now living with the mother he replied with..”Well it’s her word over yours and we’ll take her word anyday.” The guy also informed my partner that he also has overdue payment of $44,809.00!!!!!… Then a week later he receives a letter saying his payments have now DOUBLED and he now also has an overdue payment of $53,929.42!!!.. That’s an increase of $9120.42 in just a week. My partner has also supported me majority of the time we’ve been together as he likes me to travel with him and his job. With the amount he now pays her barely leaves enough money just to cover our rent but leaves nothing for food or day to day living. And what’s made it worse is Xmas is only 3 weeks away. We usually have the kids every Xmas but simply can not afford it this year. He has also finally gone and done his tax but seeing as his ex will end up with it all he has to firstly pay to get it processed and there’s no money left to do that. I’m now looking for work again but is concerned that my pay will once again increase his child support payments.
I find this hard to swallow as I’ve been on the other side of the fence where the father of my child has only started paying child support since my child turned 16. And the only time I do get paid is when he is unemployed and they deduct his Centrelink. I get a whole $44.00 a fortnight. When he’s working I don’t get a thing. The system just gets me angry as hell. It works overtime for some and not at all for others. It’s wrong!!!. So could you please tell me if I work will my money get taken to pay his ex?

I have recently been on the phone to the CMS and got no where with them. I have arrears from when i was out of work and now i’m back in work the blood suckers are after all they can, i agree that farthers/Mothers should pay and support there children but i dont agree with is paying CMS as well, it should be the parents who have the children full time and the ones who set the claim up with CMS that should pay the 20% and the ones who are paying the CMS should get to pay the 4% that way the ones with full time care will leave the CMS out of it and go straight to the paying parent.My EX don’t care about paying the 4% it only works out about 56p a week for her but for myself its about £12 a week.if they swapped it around everybody would leave the blood sucking sods out of it .

I’ve been paying CSA for the last 10 years and do not have a problem with any of it however…..Challenge them at your peril!.
As soon as they make a mistake they act like they are God!.
My existing arrangements has been ended and I’ve now been contact by the Child Maintenance service despite the CSA providing a shcedule for me to pay up to next July.
The new service has contact the HRMC and used my last year Salary. I have informed them that I changed my job over 15 motnhs ago and no longer earn the amount they have been told by the HRMC. I’ve even told them that I can provide my payslips for 15 motnhs to prove this. Their repsonse is to advise that because my new salary (which is £7,000 less per anum) is “within 25% of the figure they have been given” they cannot alter it. I’ve been through the entire legislation with a fine tooth comb and found that if there is a material fact that is incorrect they MUST change it. they do not appear to use common sense or logic.

I have just received a letter from the CSA in regards to arrears that I owe from 14 year’s ago. I paid child support to the courts before the csa took control then I paid them via my pay. At one time I did have arrears, but when I returned to work this was cleared, I carried on paying until my child was 18. ?
I had closure of this by post and thought this was the end of that.
About 3 months ago I received a letter from them stating that I owe monies, I called to them in had paid all that was owed and they girl told me it was a computer error and to eqnore this.
After two more months again I had letter from them, I put this in the bin as probably an error again. One more month passes and yet again you guessed a demand letter. I called to be assured that I owe arrears, puzzled I tried to explain that I had paid all owed, but no resonning with this person, just threat to take direct from earnings. Please can you tell me the dates of the areas no comment just you owe. How much do I owe “2500 “within a second but couldn’t give me data. I have told them that I am willing to pay if owed but would like a complete breakdown of dates the arrears, to this you will have to pay asap and we will send correspondence when we have them.
Is this anyway to treat people?
Can anyone help me with correct procedures to take, as soon much time has passed I don’t have any paperwork regarding this.

It all started back in 2011 when my husband got a letter stating he would be required to pay csa each week for child x. He wasn’t aware there was even another child that “was his”. He called them immediately to ask why they were deducting x amount from him for this child when 1 he wasn’t aware there was a child that was his and 2 there was no evidence proving he was the father. The csa told him they had tried to make contact several times via phone and letter but had no response so they take this as he is the father and have the rights to act.
Well on there system it apparently says he ignored there letters etc but in reality he had never had a single letter from them until they wrote requesting he pays x amount. We have been battling now for over 5 years with this awful company for a dna test to which they say we have to pay for as he has already “refused one” utter rubbish!! He’s never even been offered one. Now, the mother is awful, she tells everyone the child is his, she herself is refusing a dna test and has told us take her court! She knows we cannot afford this but because she had all the power she gets away with it.
He already pays csa for 1 child who we see regularly who we know 100% is his but this one he’s never had contact with, never seen him, only seen pictures on social media. Csa refuse to help him but social services said he shouldn’t be paying a penny for that child until a dna test proves he’s the fathers. They are bleeding us dry, have now wrote to him saying he has nearly £1000 in arrears which isn’t his fault. They are ready trying to say he was employed during a time he wasn’t, that’s another issue were in the middle of sorting out.
The other mother has said she will end her csa claim but we have told her not to as the mother with child in question will just get the lot. We have also been warned if child x turns out not to be his he won’t get any money back what he has paid. Utter nightmare, why do women use kids like this!! I’m a mother myself and would never use this company.

My partner pays csa, is not allowed to see the children so why do the csa company only concentrate on one side, I have never heard of such a one sided thing in my life, you don’t seem interested in the children’s welfare just money, I also know people who are self employed and don’t pay a penny, you don’t chase them, you only chase the easy catch, the csa needs to be blown up and started again, with some very fare rules unlike what that have now, only interested in the money, don’t care about mostly dads who can’t see there kids for years, can’t say anymore cos nobody listens anyway!

The cms are now not answering my phone calls and when they do We are only following government guidelines Which it’s not because they have a moral obligation to be fair and to show fair practice It’s just a nightmare the whole contact vs support payments A code of practice which every company is governed by and a standard of practice which are both government legislation Cms are in breach of both Of course all parents have to provide it has to be amerceable and affordable Being employed a home owner and paid taxes and regular contact counts for nothing because it’s a law to its self Then the child support reforms needs amending Putting able parents out if employment for excessive chargers is not what child support is about The principle of chikd support is children’s needs If an employed father cannot provide because a company can deny a living wage Then the children suffer they may gain with pwc having my living wage Is that fair on my children to be denied Xmas birthdays or even a holiday because daddy is a bank My kids know I’m poor but they can read can engage in activities that don’t cost money riding a bike local urban farm the local park or the beach But that does not give them treats or rewards The lack of dignity the lack of respect If you cms want prosecute me then ok Enough is enough Your action against me is fraud being instructed by dishonesty Says your cms is dishonest.
£55 reduced to £33 per week with £22 removed from the bill I’m not arrears and I’ve paid all action is fraud Dismiss my local mp involvement the judges decision in a tribunal Letters of grievance stating your companies action against me is abuse.
£84 a month has risen to £378 a month in two an half years My wages have not grown by this much £7.77 and a 140 hours a month contract.
I’m suffering and my mental health is being effected by cms lack of moral obligation That my children are people not numbers to exploit money from me for the hostile abusive ex partner who has out hatred into my children’s heads Who has denied reasonable contact with each other Threat of being arrested if I go and see my children My son and daughter sing denied contact on their birthdays with their dad Because the hatred in the mother but can exploit my wages backed up by the cms.

I’m tired of the excuesess it’s law you have to pay £5,000 out of a 15,500 a year income With no benefits or support It’s being used as another way to alienate parents from their children Backed up by hostile vendictive women The law states an oblingation of paying chikd support nothing about increasing it to abusive practice of fraud or dishonesty If the pwc refuses a direct payment plan or mediation then it’s just being used as another weapon of hatred towards nrp Xmas my kids will be more resentful of not getting presents from Santa than the ex and cms getting my living wage The system is an ass the mother is an ass And should be prosecuted for instructing a company for financally abusing me and my children Ok I should pay so should the mother when I have care she does not pay ??
It’s a tax on fathers to socially outcast them from children It has nothing n to do with children it’s a tax on low income workers being denied funds that they work for to spend on their children The mother can spend my income on her self It’s to put children out of poverty Ok I’m in poverty by your abuse To be informed that we cms is not governed by the consumer transaction act or the fair financal act or even the children act of 1989 We’ll the act is morally wrong It’s just another form of child abuse The process of appeal does not work the process of communication with cms does not work But stealing a persons living wage does How does money come before children’s needs with both parents That’s not about children it’s about profit The cms need 24% out of £378 a month I paid £90 was a charge And I’m still in arrears of £2000 even though £1500 has been a charge for them stealing my living wage
Again that’s about profit not children I’m a father and I’ve offered payment It was refused because I’m on a low income and I want to keep contact with my kids go to work and still be in the home I’m buying for my regular contact with my children By cms actions against me I’ve failed to pay for my home my Staturty bills And it’s all being shouted at being discriminated against I’m not a criminal so why and how does this company think I am I’m a father who has fought for contact in family court And now the financal abuse will stop me having regular contact The system of living and working a full time time job for less than part time wages When the pwc can claim £1000’s in housing and benefits It’s not a balanced or fair system it’s being abused and it is corrupted by dishonesty Is it moral to work for nothing Is legal to be denied a voice It’s not democratic and is against my human rights and is also child abuse if no money in my household how can I provide for another household It’s just stupid the law of chikd maintenace is stupid The duress and stress of being out into hardship Which in effect will pass out in normal living Because it’s nasty and boring to keep saying no sorry kids no money Food bills and the right to a life Cms 0-100=£7 100-200=£15 £200-£850 Is whatever they say I don’t earn £295 per week after tax Staturty tax has to be paid It’s just another stealth tax cms needs to be abolished on the grounds it’s abuse it’s morally wrong it’s chikd abuse And being instructed by dishonest ex partners to increase the void of being with our children If the cms want a 1950’s system the man the breadwinner we’ll let us earn a wage And if that was the case the mother would be the outcasts 5 kids to 4 dads That’s was not socially accepted back in the 1950’s either The cms constantly lie and are dishonest We lost your information or no we cancelled that and made a new contract We’ll without informing by letter then that contract is useless or repudiation It’s like serpents head just keeps coming back with more bs and more dishonesty I have no faith in its ability to pro form it’s task of being a fair and balanced system It is backed by two debt collection agencies To exploit as much as possible by dishonest means Now I just want to give up if I’m just a bank and a man with no voice To a bitter ex pwc who can use it in a coercive and controlling then it’s immoral and should be abolished.

I’m now up to a parliamentary ombudsman in health and social services Over the conduct of Cms towards myself I earn a my own living don’t ask the state for a penny I don’t claim I earn a wage to pay for a home I’m buying So I’m an easy target to be exploited by a dis honest company Being instructed by a dis honest person using the system in a coercive and controlling to de fraud me of a living Child support is an obligation not a punishment Two debt collection agencies to attack money that does not exist Is a very stupid law it’s immoral it’s illegal Cms is in breach of their own contract by being disorganised and shambolic It’s just a fraudulent company.

I was persuaded by the CSA to make a private arrangement with my ex for the backdated pay he owed, which was 6000 pounds. CSA said its better if we make a private arrangement. So against my better judgement I allowed him to pay me at a slower rate through a private arrangement, I also allowed him to just pay me 2500 and let him off the rest to protect his relationship with his son,(So he didn’t get angry) As soon as I made this a private arrangement, he sought legal advise and was told he didn’t have to legally give me even a penny now it was a private arrangement So after paying me 1200 he never gave me another penny. The CSA should have warned me this could happen, I thought I was still protected by them.
