Okay so I am caught up on my child support. I have a big job opportunity that requires me to have a license. I have everything I need to get my license except for a note from the Colorado Child Support Agency saying i am in good standing. I have been trying to get ahold of my caseworker for 4 weeks now with no luck and tried to contact her manager with no luck. The deadline to obtain my license is today and I have still not gotten a call back. Can I file a lawsuit or something!? When my ex-wife calls her she gives a response the same day or day after.

I THINK IT SICK HOW WOMEN AND THE CMS TREAT MONEY AS A SOCIAL RIGHT, MOST WOMEN BREAK UP RELATIONSHIPS FOR THE OWN TWISTED SELFISH Ways.Men are treated like animals and just seen as cheque books and chewing gum on the street have if all abuse cases are a false and just away for women to get rich and move on and destroy mens lives, fathers are better parents than mothers today and change will happen we live in a liberal globalisation time but like all good things it will come to an end.

I am not sure anyone will read this but i guess i need to vent to anyone that will listen. I dont hate my ex i understand we were no good together and in effect hurt the kids by being together i also have no problem paying what i need to as i brought them both into the world. But what i dont understand is that there is a law in place to make fathers pay that want to see there kids but are not allowed all i am entitled to is i can facetime and call them and if they ask me for money i am allowed to buy them things but as soon as i mention about seeing them all hell breaks loose.
What we need as a law in place that if the father poses no danger at all they should be allowed to have contact. So many dads are in my boat if not worse i have not seen my children in so long but am still expected to pay i dont really understand how money would benefit more that seeing there dad i guess as per normal the goverment are missing the point. Also i will be branded a bitter dad if i said anything so i will stay quiet and miss my children and see them through a screen and try not to rock the boat just so i can hold onto the hour i get a week if i am lucky. I believe one day these laws will change but until women who do this are held accountable and their money stops they will keep doing this as it is far to easy.
One last thing i know so many dads that are not working or getting round the system in order not to pay as a result of not seeing their children and who could blame them. If this changes fathers would be more than help to pay it should be 50/50 after all it was when the babies were made. I am still going through this but will remain positive after all she thinks about the money so much but it will stop very soon and her hold on me will end and i will show my children all the letters,texts and everything to prove that i never stopped thinking about them.

I have been paying regular payments to my ex wife since we split up about 8 years ago, initially it was via the old csa system and when it folded we had an informal agreement which i increased as my wages did, I also paid for my eldest sons phone alongside all of the additional activities that they wanted to do, this continued until the start of march 2017 when she approached the csa to see if she could get more money as she won’t get a job (I presume).
My problem is that they are going to assess my payments on a gross yearly income from the 15/16 tax year which I no longer receive and because my pay drop hasn’t quite equated to 25% they will not review this or reduce the payments accordingly. They have also said that at the end of the year I will not receive the over payment back.
Please can someone advise, up until now our arrangement worked well and my children were able to just come and go from my home as they pleased but the amount of money that they are looking to take from me now is going to place a huge financial strain on me and my 2 other children as I no longer earn that wage!!!

I receive a war pension payment and following my divorce 2 years ago, have managed to find work too. On my calculations it has my earnings, plus my war pension payment (a prescribed benefit under child maintenance calculations regs 2012) added together to my earnings, giving me a gross calculation of 20k.CMS have stated that they are allowed to do that and my monthly payments are calculated on this basis. Is this correct because CMCR state that WP only attracts a £7 pw payment?

My Son is now 23 years old but the CSA still owes nearly £17 000. Terrible failures and lack of interest in recovering money despite me chasing with help of MP. I believe CSA pretends acting on my behalf. I would not have a job if I was working like they do – my Employer would not keep me! Lost confidence in justice as the case was looked at by ICE and I was awarded £75 for maladministration of the case. I don’t know where else to go to get this resolved.

My son is now 9 yrs old – I have been fighting the CSA for last 7 years, through a spiteful ex partner that basically wants what I have , that I have worked hard for since I was 17 I am now 48.
As well as the constant battles for contact since he was 1yr old. The story in short I remortgaged my home ( which I had before I met my sons mother) just before my son was born to purchase a 4 bed family home in a better area . We split when the child was 4 months old , the mother was still at her home 2 bed. When we split her last words were if I leave this house (the new 4 bed) you will never see your son again! Then the hell began. I started to send cheques for my sons care as she denied me access , I then explained I would have to go to court for regular time with my son as I hardly got to see him. When the application was made the mother was on my doorstep tearing a cheque up and threw at me in pieces then started to angrily to slander me in front of my new neighbors.
csa was soon in touch like vultures and have made my life hell from then on. This has been inventing debts, ccjs tribunals court appearances financial investigations and most corrupt of it all using a high powered balif to commence proceedings to sell the 4 bed house for up to 75 % of its value to recover a debt that the CSA had invented. They have caused me nothing other than financial ruin as I am self employed and have suffered with health problems as a result of these merciless meglomaniacs. They work close it seems with the mother to punish the father how can they get away with this.
Does anyone else have similar stories or feel so strongly that the CSA have done them wrong.
We should then collectively file complaints on their conduct as now it seems again from experience that this last month dealing with CMS it’s going down the same path.

One thing people should know if you brake up with you ex and CSA phone you or call you don’t give them you are National Insurance Number, Bank Detail, Employer Detail. You know why?CSA can get you are detail from HMRC, DWP every penny you earn. without National Insurance Number they sitting in the dark this is because more than 15% people live in Britain had the same first name and last name. So this mean they can go to HMRC for me e.g. Mr Steve Price detail. so if CSA call and ask you to confirm you are NI and Date of Birth just hang up. If you tell them you are NI that mean yeahh… GINGO!!! for them they can start taken payment even so you don’t want them to.
