Why am I still paying CSA if he’s in the army?

September 30, 2014

Have been paying for my 16 year old son all his life without fail. now he just joined army, so phone up and told them and was told theyd look into it.

Just had call of them to say I still got to pay cause he at army college. I said hes getting paid to be there so that cant be right. I asked who i pay money to and was told his mum even though hes staying in barracks.

I told them he’ll be earning more than me so how is it right and all I got was hes in further education.

CSA was OK until I asked about stopping

September 30, 2014

For the last couple of yrs the relationship between my daughter and me has become strained, she is 17 and i hardly see her now, infact she ignores me and treats me like a normal customer if i go to the shop where she works.

She has done a year at college but ive been told she dosnt want to continue with it. She works part time however i suspect as its the holidays she is working more than 25 hrs a week , ive been told she has had an interview to start an apprenticeship with a one day college release.

I called CSA and put this to them, the first time ive ever experienced attitude from an agent in yrs, normally theyre ok but then ive never mentioned stopping CSA before. I got speaking to a b*tch who contracticted everything ive been told before and was told “lots of kids do extra work on holiday periods waiting to go back to college”.

I dont know if this women had her ex by the balls or what but i felt a bit belittled, she went on to say it was upto my ex to keep child benefit informed of changes, knowing her she isnt going to do that, also if she did would benefits tell CSA?

Im confused as i feel im being taken for a right mug. I always mention to CSA everytime i speak to them for the record my ex had the affair not me and up until 2 yrs ago i had my girl half the week since she was 8.

CSA incompetence is hurting my child

September 29, 2014

My ex husband for the past 18 months has been lying to the Csa about the amount of time my son spends with me.

He stays every weekend fri and sat night and every school holiday. I contacted the Csa a year ago and told them the information they had was incorrect and that he stayed with me as above. They told me they could do nothing about it until I’d kept a diary for a year to prove this was the case.

So I kept the diary. Feb I contacted them back and said that I now have the diary and could they adjust the payments. They asked for a copy of the diary which I sent in. I waited and waited to hear but nothing happened.

I called them again to be told that they had never received it. So I sent it again and waited. Nothing. I called again to be told that they had contacted my ex and he said that he didn’t sleep over and they always believe the parent with care.

I said I had witnesses to prove that this was untrue so again they asked me to send in a copy of my diary. I sent it they lost it AGAIN!!!!! I’ve just called up to see what’s happening and it seems like they just don’t care.

I have another child that I care for that is now suffering hardship due to the incopentance of these people . I’m getting to the stage where I don’t know where to turn for help as no one seems to care. Please help me.

CSA is pushing us into arrears with their fake claims

September 29, 2014

My partner has been assessed again (his ex likes to have him reassessed every few months) by the CSA based on Apr 12 – Mar 13 accounts (he is self employed) as paying £170 per month plus they want over £200 per month for 4 months for some magical arrears they’ve just come up with.

They do this all the time, we went to court in 2011 as they sent letters saying he owed £7,000 then £10,000 etc. We won, he only owed £700. Now they have invented some further arrears from 2006!

The problem is most of that work was at the start of the tax year, since December 2012 until now he’s really struggled for work. If you look at his income since January 2013 he’s brought in £129 per week before tax. Based on just over £500 per month actual earnings before tax and rent, bills etc he obviously can’t afford to give them over £300 per month.

They say they have to take tax years though and have ignored my submissions of his actual earnings this year. Can they do this? We are now racking up actual arrears because he genuinely can’t afford to pay.

I refuse to pay it myself because his ex is a raging psychopath who has a caution for harassment against me and I won’t give her a penny of my money. I am currently covering his bills due to how little he is earning.

Why aren’t I receiving any support?

September 29, 2014

I’ve not seen my 2 sons for 2 years, due to a nasty split, the boys were turned against me, even though he had the affair.

Anyway i’m now having 500 pounds a month taken away from me, I have a third child to support and I have not received a pennies help for her.

Fed up because I’m struggling to provide for one of my children, when the ex and his partner both work full time and don’t want me in my sons lives……it’s all wrong.

Why can’t the CSA see what’s obvious?

September 28, 2014

WHY?????Cant my daughters “father” pay a penny for her????

WHEN iv told CSA he works fulltime+claiming incapacity benefit..his wife works fulltime+claims benefits..my child was receving £5a month csa+it has recently STOPPED!!

CSA told me he makes LESS than £5A WEEK!!!!!BLOODY JOKE!!!!WHEN my child+anyone in the world can see ALL OVER THE INTERNET that this “MAN”working..driving fancy cars..living in a fancy home..spending a fortune on the wifes KIDS..lavish holidays 5-6 times a year ect ect ect!!

If we can see all this* my god*WHY CANT CSA?????

Can she have back pay if I’ve never missed a payment?

September 28, 2014

Hi my ex wife wants more money off me for our 13 year old or she is going to the CSA.

This isn’t a problem but she wants 5 years back pay.

Is this realistic as I’ve not missed one direct debit in 5 years?

CSA penalise the wrong people

September 28, 2014

Hi looking through all of the comments above im shocked at how unbalanced all 5his is m partner who I have been with 12 years and 3 children 2 his and one from a previous relationship found out 3 years ago that he has another daughter who was 8.

At the time he was 14 when the child was conceived and wasnt told till 8 years later shocking !!so we have our family unit and this came as a total shock for u only for the other mother to decide that after 8 years and after acusing 4 other boys of being the dad because we did a ibternet dna test that came back positive that she wanted his money!!!

He had a good job which thanks to tue csa demands of £80 a week for a child he has never met he has stopped and gone self employed it was the only choice we had my my eldest son is is disabled so they was calculated all tax credits ect on this which is absolutely discusting.

Its now 3 years aftrr he found out and the csa still continuously harras him he has been put on anti depressents because of all the stress og it all my my family are suffering whilst she just swans around and d9snt see she has done anything wrong my piont is the csa are Sh*t and penalise the wrong people bit we will f8ght them all the way.

Locked out of my own CSA account

September 27, 2014

I have contacted the CSA today gave them my nino date of birth of my child etc . I am the parent with care I haven’t had any money from her father for over 2 years now.

He was unemployed but now i have heard that he’s working. the CSA wouldn’t continue with my case because they said I answered the security questions wrong? its been that long that i have probably forgotten some.

I am stuck on what else to do now as my child’s father isn’t paying anything for her.

Can you please advice me on what I should do next?
