How do I know if my child is in full time education?
November 18, 2009
CSA payments for my child should have ceased in September of this year as this is when his child benefit should have stopped. I contacted the CSA to let them know about this because contrary to belief they do not stop your CSA payments unless your ex partner informs them of this.
Anyway back to my story. After about a six week wait i received a letter from the CSA that my child had started college then left and has gone back to school so i will have to keep on paying until he has left full time education or until his nineteenth birthday whichever comes first.
Now the problem is that i am unfortunately not in contact with him as my ex partner moved away quite a few years ago not leaving a forwarding address.
I would be very grateful if anyone could give me some advice as to whether the CSA would get any proof of education as she has been in trouble for Benefit fraud before and any ideas of how i can find out when he leaves.
Many thanks in advance.
