What action can I take or should I just give up and close my case?
February 14, 2013
I am a PWC. I was awarded 5 per week MC as the NRP is self employed. I raised a variation due to the fact he only declared 450 pcm income. In reality he can earn this in one morning, depending on job size. While his daughter gets 5 per week that is what NRP’s on the dole have to pay, I am obviously not happy she is being denied support.
Before I get slated for being a money grabbing bitch, I am not after taking him to the cleaners, i am after a fair amount. I work myself all the hours I can and would be happy enough to have enough off him to cover dinner money and music tuiton fees (about 100 pcm) He says he will get anything she needs, but when I ask him, he always has excuses or promises her the money that never materialises and I have to find it out of a everdecreasing pot of silver.
I have contacted csa and first off I got told the variation had been passed to complex case worker, and take 6 weeks to complete. One month later, it was still being ‘assessed’. 4 months later i get told caseworker will contact me. No contact. Yesterday, and 5 months later, I get told it hasnt ever been actioned, they dont know why,(theres no ‘tab’ on the system apparently?!) and later on in call that the person who was dealing with variation had left! I would like to know what further action I can take before I ultimately just give up and close my case, when a department isnt even capable of sending out a letter requesting information from NRP, what chance have we got. My daughter has been failed.
