CSA sent us six letters which arrived on the same day
January 28, 2013
A year after mine and my husbands first child was born we found out he could have another child with his ex (there was 5 possible fathers). we went through csa for a dna test it came back positive. so my husband took responsibilty for his daughter and saw her brought her nappys etc.
Then it turned into us having her every weekend and pretty much all the time it all got a bit too much like being babysitters. in the end my husbands ex did a moonlight flit up north to live with her new partner and did not tell us. my husband continued to try to pay csa and agreed for them to take payments out of his wages which they failed to do. yesturday we got six letters all come through at once the earliest dated 26/01/2010!. explaining how much he had to pay.
My husband calls them all the time to sort things out but gets told he has to speak to his case worker who suprise suprise is never there when he rings. he gets told she will ring him back then nothing!. hes not allowed contact with her as the mother wont allow it he dosnt know where she lives nothing!, and because she stops him seeing her she gets more money as he dosnt have her overnight i think there system is great if it worked on cases as individuals not just in general!.
We cant afford 140 a month we pay full rent no benefits i stay at home and look after our two children and my husband works but seems we would be better off him not working.
