Maria Miller and the £90,000 second home for her parents.
It was nice to see the disgusting ex Minister of the CSA finally getting found out about claiming this money for a home her parents live in, tax payers money.
After overseeing the disgusting department that has cost the economy a small fortune and denied any working NRP an opportunity to a life following divorce, I hope she goes to jail, also our new minister Steve Webb has previous in this area.
How in Gods name can anyone vote for these people, Government morals are long gone.
They say it’s ok as it is legal and allowed for an MP to claim this. Time they changed the law then as this in the current climate is totally unacceptable Do you not think?….

Absent parents failing to give financial support to their children could escape threatened jail time after a governmental group lost a court case to pursue arrears of child support.
Experienced judges said the lack of authority would mean the regime of enforcing child maintenance payments would be “completely emasculated”.
A ruling from The Court of Appeal showed that “muddled” processes that the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (CMEC) used in two different cases of absent fathers had gone so far as to affect the human rights of the fathers. The Court of Appeal ordered that urgent steps should be taken to correct the procedures.
The ruling threw out the possibility of jail for the two men and was made, according to Lord Justice Ward, with “considerable reluctance”. The two men were alleged to have owed around £13,000 in unpaid child maintenance.
Ward acknowledged that the ruling was likely to remove the clout from the CMEC but added that these powers were Read more

I contacted the CSA after I divorced the father of my two children, as advised by the local social security office. My ex husband made the relevant payments to the csa, but I never received any payments from them. It amounts to almost £900.
I have rung them on too many occassions to list, and have been told to seek legal advice as to getting the payments. I have told csa I will persue it legally but they still did not move on it.
My ex-husband has also contacted them on many occassions requesting the money returned or paid…its almost two years now and still no joy.
That money is rightfully belonging to my children for essentialas for their care… yet CSA still havent paid it!!
Where is the justice in that?

We’ve had an appeal from BBC Radio Devon. They want to hear from people in Devon who have been having trouble with the Child Support Agency. If you live in Devon and the CSA has been ruining your life, get in touch with Kirk England from BBC Radio Devon now and your story could be featured on the radio. They want to run the feature this week, so get in touch before Friday June 29th.
Over to Kirk England from BBC Radio Devon -
I’m researching a story on the work of the Child Support Agency for BBC Radio Devon.
I’m interested in several issues – including people being disqualified from driving OR facing jail – because of a dispute over late child maintenance payments.
Are you in Devon and have been affected by this …?
Perhaps you are in a dispute with the CSA over outstanding payments …?
If you are happy to speak to BBC Radio Devon please get in touch.
We need to hear from people as soon as possible as this story is for broadcast on Friday 29th June 2012.

For parents with care, trying to get payments out of their ex partners, one of the most difficult things can be dealing with the Child Support Agency – especially if their ex is self-employed, or manages to evade the CSA. The CSA tends to only chase payments when the NRP is in employment under PAYE, so they can use a DEO to retrieve payment quickly and easily. They don’t like investigating, doing the leg work or chasing NRPs that make it difficult for them.
So what can parents do if they’re getting no support from the NRP, and the CSA isn’t helping? This is the problem that faced Rebecca Jane, and she solved it by starting The Lady Detective Agency. Now Rebecca runs her own business helping other PWCs track down their exes and provide evidence of their earnings, lifestyle and living arrangements to ensure justice is done.
