CSAhell.com is on Facebook again

January 28, 2013

After a lengthy hiatus CSAhell.com is now back on Facebook with its own Facebook Page, Facebook.com/CSAhellcom.

We were on Facebook a couple of years ago, where our page grew to over 1,000 ‘fans’ before the Child Support Agency complained to Facebook about the content of the page. It seems it’s fine for their staff, such as Jamie Smith from Belfast, to say the most abhorrent things to fathers but it’s not OK for fathers to say them back – at least not in the eyes of Facebook or the CSA.

Anyhow, we’re back on Facebook with a new page and, this time, we’ll be behaving ourselves – even if the CSA staff get on there and start abusing us again. Incidentally, as a warning to the CSA staff – we do know who you are and can identify you quite easily, so don’t think you can come on here, or on the Facebook page, and starting insulting people in a clandestine manner. We can tell who you are in a variety of different ways, just as we did with Anna Lewis on Twitter – the CSA employee from Birkenhead who immediately deleted all of her Tweets when we pointed out we knew who she was. So don’t waste your time, you’re not allowed to misrepresent yourselves online and we know who you are.

For those of you who do want to find help, advice and hear from others in the same position – you’re welcome on the CSAhell.com Facebook page, so come along and join in.

CSA Caption Competition

CSA worker attacks father

CSA worker attacks father - give us your caption for this picture!

This photo was taken by a father making a peaceful protest against the Child Support Agency earlier this year. During his protest he was attacked, verbally and physically, by this woman who works for the CSA.

We’d like you to caption this picture with your best, wittiest and most apt caption. What do you think the CSA worker is saying? What do you think the photographer might be saying? Perhaps the woman in the purple coat has something to say as she walks by, or maybe the two young women on the right of the picture have something on their minds?

Enter your caption in the comments box below. There’s no prize on offer, just the satisfaction of a job well done. Oh, and you can read the original post about the attack here.

Divorce Advice website partners with CSAhell.com

October 31, 2011

It’s a sad fact that divorce is an all too common outcome of marriage these days, and that anyone involved with the dreaded Child Support Agency will most likely have also had dealings with divorce lawyers, and have gone through the turmoil of a divorce and a financial settlement.

It can seem that you’re on your own when you’re in a divorce battle, and everything you do seems to result in expense, anger and resentment. There are plenty of places where you can get help on divorce though, but most companies offering divorce advice are very Read more

July 31, 2010

If you missed the radio show last week where CSAhell.com was represent by Darren Jamieson to local radio stations City Talk and Radio City in an interview with Pete Price, then you can listen to the segment right here.

The sound quality isn’t perfect unfortunately due to the way in which it was recorded, but you’ll get the gist of the interview and how CSAhell.com came across on the radio.

Do let us know what you thought of the interview, and if you listened to the whole talk show itself – or even if you called in to the show (as we know that Sue from the Child Support Agency, and who wrote this post, did).

CSAhell.com taking part in radio show about the CSA

July 26, 2010

Tomorrow evening, Tuesday July 27th, you’ll be able to hear a radio show in the North West of England on both Radio City and City Talk that discusses the problems of the Child Support Agency, and how many parents with care are not getting the money that is owed to them. Darren Jamieson, from CSAhell.com, will be speaking on the radio show about the website CSAhell.com, why it was created and how it is offering advice and help to both parents with care (PWC) and non resident parents (PWC).

You can listen to the radio show on either Radio City or City Talk, between the hours of 10pm and 2am. Radio City is broadcast on 96.7FM, and City Talk is available on 105.9FM, and on DAB.

You can, if you prefer, listen to either of the shows online at www.radiocity.co.uk, and at www.citytalk.fm.

The show to look out for is called ‘Late Night City with Pete Price’, and anyone who is having difficulties with the Child Support Agency is welcome to phone in to the show and share their problems on air.

We hope to see you there!

Just Search SEO CSAHell

July 28, 2008

Since CSAhell.com went live we’ve been climbing up the ranks of Google and Yahoo for child support agency related phrases. This has really helped us to help others who are being persecuted by the CSA, but now we’ve got the SEO company Just Search to take on our SEO work. This means they’ll do their search engine wizardry behind the scenes and makes sure that our website ranks even better for CSA related phrases, and that the CSA themselves become more aware of both our website, and the trials and tribulations of our users.

We’ve only had Just Search working on the site for a few weeks now, and already we’ve seen the difference in terms of traffic that we’re getting.

Thanks to Phil at Just Search for the work he’s done on the site. Now we should be able to help a lot more people in their dealings with the CSA.
