How can I stop paying this unfair amount?
December 5, 2013
In 2004 my marriage ended. My ex husband, an Army officer sought 100% Residency through the courts in order to achieve the generous Boarding School Allowance. I was devastated when the judge awarded him this, for no other reason than schooling. I couldn’t afford to appeal. The family allowance was transferred at this stage.
My ex then went to CSA who then deducted full 20% from my salary. I work part time for an Airline (since 1986). It has been terrible, I have been constantly broke. When my ex retired from the Army this year (June2013) I petitioned the court to change order as he no longer was eligible for full residency & boarding school allowance.
The judge quashed the order as children now 16 & 18. I sent the new order to CSA & Family allowance (he no longer receives it as earnings too high) my ex also moved 400 miles north & I live a short walk from the School.
All previous restrictions have been lifted but yet the CSA refuse to stop taking full 20% from my pay.
My interest only mortgage has come to an end & the repayments are now 3x as much plus the children’s clothes, pocket money, tuck, mobile phones, toiletries & CSA is crippling me.
How can I stop paying this unfair amount to my ex who has big pension, a new job & who seems to get away with everything in the eyes of CSA.
I applied for family allowance some months ago & sent court order etc but have heard nothing & all phone calls to chase them up results in them telling me it can take 90 days!!
Please can you help.
I need some clear advice
