    Yes you can make a private arrangement between yourself and your ex partner so that you do not have to use the CSA. However, you should be careful about how you go about it. Make sure that you have a signed and witnessed document detailing how much you will pay, and when. Also, make all payments either by cheque or by bank transfer so that there is a record – never pay by cash.

    The CSA should be informed as well – both parties should notify them by letter sent by recorded delivery, and request that they confirm receipt of the letters.
