    Did you notify the CMS that you stopped working?

    They’ve assessed I have to pay £27 weekly which is no problem, but they’ve told me I have arrears from 2016 and so monthly in total would be £260!! In 2016 i stopped working so that i could take the ex to court to reinstate contact with my daughter, which I won. I advised the cms of this but they say they have no record to show this!! They won’t budge. So ive requested records of my employment from HMRC. Which I’ll pass to cms. If that doesn’t work I’m in contact with my MP. Who probably won’t care either. The system is an utter joke and discriminatory towards loving Dads

Got something to say?
