CSA demanded 8k or they’d send me to prison
January 7, 2013
About a year ago I had a phone call from the CSA demanding that I pay £8,000 or I will be sent to prison, this isn’t the first time that they have demanded large sums of money from me and just like the last time my family almost killed themselves to get the money together.
I earn £12000 a year as business has truly gone down hill and was even at one point claiming JSA but they refused to take that into account.
since then I have been paying £40 per week despite the fact that even my employer wrote to them and informed them of my earnings.
I have now amended my payment form £40 per week to £16 a week as this is the rate that I should be paying, and have written a letter to inform them that I have changed my standing order.
I know that they will come back to hit me hard claiming that my ex wants more money and that I will have to pay £1000′s again as some sort of form of punishment for correcting my payments.
I’m feeling very desperate at present, as you can imagine myself and my family haven’t had a great Christmas as I have been handing out all my spare money to keep the CSA of my back and there demands has also depleted my parents cash and they are retired.
Please can someone help
