CSA intend to deduct payments from gross pay
June 11, 2010
Hello, this is more of a question than my experience of the ‘system’, which I have had to fight, and pay, to secure access in court and so on.
However, having been made to pay the maximum contribution on child maintenance from April (as opposed to an affordable amount), I have read with much horror the intention to take payments at Gross pay not net. As I will also fall into the higher pay bracket at Gross I will be deducted at a rate of 28% from Gross, paying my ex-wife some £1,160 per month, leaving me with around £120 per week.
Yet my ex-wife chose to leave her employment and has her own business – i.e. assets and needs are not taken into account.
How can this be, and how can we stop this from happening from April 2011? I have’nt slept properly for the last two nights once I had read this.
