How do I appeal a decision made by the CSA?
February 21, 2013
I informed the CSA that I was starting work and that my 2 children were living with their dad by court order . I gave all my work details to try and support the process to be done as quick as possible for my children. CSA was informed and given proof that I also pay by court order a contact centre to see my children.
So CSA said that I could fill in a form to say that so my CSA payments could be less as I was already paying to see my children. I currently pay £360 a month to a contact centre and I pay for my travel, packed lunch for the 3 of us each week and gifts for my children.if we go out of centre or have more time to get her for an activity the free is extra £30 each hour and then additional costs if we go out of centre. I took my time to fill the form in for CSA.
I was shocked and horrified as I barley get though each month financially that on 30/1/13 I was informed that none of the above matters or counts and I should pay £61.00 each week . Total of £244 a month. So in total I will be paying a minimum of £605 a month if we don’t go out any we’re during our contact other wise it could be lots more with the 2 additional costs for workers time and if we go out.
I do not agree with this as I won’t be able to afford to live and iam already struggling. I won’t be able to go out with my children or buy them any treats.
How do I appeal . Please can you help me. Please.
I want to pay for my children but that isn’t affordable.
