CSA Arrears Hell

September 18, 2009

Can anyone help with any advice. My partner split with his ex; with whom he has 1 child 9 years ago. His ex partner hasn’t worked since she had their son and had another child with someone else 4 years ago but is on her own claiming benefits.

We have been together for 8 years and I have 1 daughter who is 9 from a previous relationship.

My partner has been paying the CSA through his wages for over 5 years through a DEO. They obtained a liabilty order against him ‘just incase he defaulted’. I have supplied my earnings details 3 times to them as I work 18 hours a week and he works full time. He has a good job he’s a train driver so he earns a respectable wage. He has been paying £400 since day 1 as the claim was back dated; even though cash payments had been made but there we go.

The CSA have now contacted and said they will now be looking to take 40% of his wages because the arrears are £10k. 6 months ago we offered an extra £50.00 per month as they were ringing every week wanting more. We’ve been paying this but its not enough for them. We have involved the Citizens Advice when the liability order was thrown at us and they were involved when we offered the extra £50.00 towards the arrears.

We have a mortgage payment of £900 pounds a month before we even start on council tax and other monthly bills. I’m just looking for any advice that may help; or are we best sticking with the Citizens Advice?

Thanks in advance.

    i would just like to say, how can c.s.a cause so many problems,for dads,an second familys an hide behind rules that dont make sense in the real world, we all live in, its as if caseworks live in a visual realality, where they are P.M an crime is 0%, everyone is in a good relationship, broken relationship is a thing of the past,everyone person has a job the welfare benefit has been dissolved, dealing with the c.s.a is like “the prisoner” where common sense fear to tread. unhappy c.s.a victim treated badly.

Got something to say?
