CSA demanding funds from 1995 even though ex-wife confirmed private arrangement

March 5, 2017

I have just received a demand for £30,000 and a request for detail on finances covering the period 1995-1999. I have never entered into an arrangement with the CSA but did receive a demand from them maybe 16 or 17 years ago which was resolved by my ex-wife confirming that we had a private maintenance arrangement and I was paying her funds in excess of the CSA recommended amount to her directly on a monthly basis. I am shocked and mystified as to why this would surface now after all these years. I now live in Australia and have a new family. My older kids are 26, 28 and 30 this year!! I don’t know what to do as I don’t have any of the documentation from this period – I’m fearful that if I get in touch with them that they will step up proceedings to pursue these funds which are simply not due. Can anyone offer any advice?

    If they are asking for details, it means they don’t know what you were doing during that time. So, going by that, tell them you were unemployed and on benefits. They can’t prove you were working, so don’t tell them you were.

Got something to say?
