Ex won’t let me pay direct so I have to pay CSA to take my money!

July 6, 2021

I have 2 daughters since feb one moved in with me so the csa had to work out the new payment both ways. they got back to me in 2 days told me what I had to pay. however it took 12 weeks to sort out what I was to receive which was 20 pound a month because she has aa zero hour contract and has been off for 12 month because of covid however I know she has been payed cash to help them out. she has refused to give me her back details so I can not pay her direct. I have told the csa this but they don’t want to know and have have started taking it direct out of my wages and they r charging me £35 a week for doing it. How do I stop them and only want a fair chance like she has but they seem to not care and have sided with her all the way. I did tell them they are a sexist organisation they disagreed but I have had every bit of proof I sent to show how she is been obstructive rejected anyone have any advise ????????????????

CMS office is always closed!

June 30, 2021

Nailed for not making payments without evidence. I supplied proof and also asked for it to to fixed. Put on collect and pay instead, now I cant get rid of the arrears this system has created. Payments went from £659 to over £1000 a month. Im in big trouble…

The office is always closed and cant speak to a case worker. Takes weeks and weeks for them to start looking at my case. My daughters are 17 and 19 and being encouraged to work cash in hand while taking classes for 8 hours a week. CMS legality has destroyed my children’s education and bankrupted me. Pure evil and perhaps the single reason why there is a gender pay gap.

CMS hell: the worst organisation!

June 28, 2021

I have equal shared care of my son since he was 4 now 16 and still battling on with cms. They don’t believe it have equal shared care even though I have a county court order in place for the last 18 months my son s been living with me full time and still they don’t believe me and getting stung by them all the time.

It’s cost a small fortune which would be better going to my son and daughter instead you can’t talk to them or get hold of them there services are appalling it should be shut down I am on with my mp and also the independent case examiner and the government body that my mp has written to as they are costing me money taking money with out my concert and you can’t actually go somewhere too sort the mess out face to face they are scum of the earth sjwils.

CMS not taking pension contributions off gross earnings

June 21, 2021

My CMS review came round at the end of February 2021 and to my surprise even though my earnings had gone up £2,000 I was hit with a monthly increase of £125.

Unfortunately I had received shares from my company that had matured and I sold some of the shares to pay the tax. The rest has stayed invested. Very little money came my way. Also when I did the calculation on the CMS figures I found out the pension contributions had not been dedicated. The two amounts had added £6,000 to my assessment for the year. My P60 was showing over £33,000 gross pay.

I phoned CMS to query the figures every week for a month and added messages on the online forum. Documents were provided with breakdowns. More calls followed. Was directed to HMRC wrongly for a fix. Letter was sent, followed by another to appeal decision.

Now over 3 months later and hours of calls and messages latter written and also sent online, there is still no fix. CMS want the figures re-submiting to HMRC by my employer who has no idea how to do this and payroll department is in India. Again, hours of time spent on a fix. citizens advice had no answers. Employer’s would not send a breakdown to HMRC as CMS said they needed. HMRC did not reply to my letter asking for help. P60 only shows the tax paid and not a breakdown of all earnings as CMS said they needed, despite me forwarding my payslip for week 52 that contains all this.

I have now sort an accountant to see if we can re-submit using UTR SA302 and ask HMRC to register for a self assessment. I will be writing to CMS telling them of my actions and informing them I wish to go to a independent court of appeal. All this has taken its toll on me and affected my work and relationship with my girlfriend. It is costing me money I don’t have and I now don’t sleep and suffer from depression. I was also in an abusive relationship when I was married and this situation not being fairly dealt with in a timely manner brings back all the painful memories of why I had to leave.

I don’t know if this can be fixed and eventually I may leave employment. Their booklet highlights the pension contributions should be dedicated from the gross figure but they will not do this. I have missed lots of relevant info in this read, but wanted to highlight the barriers and poor service cms give and the tricks they use. My employer Amazon is of no help either and lacks care or compassion. Hopefully I can get a fix but I doubt I like so many will achieve it. Something needs to change as the system is unfair.

CMS taking mother’s side despite evidence!

June 18, 2021

My partners Son attended college for just 8.5 hours a week and we had written confirmation from his college tutor which we sent to both CB and CMS by recorded mail . CMS will not remove his Son from the case all the time CB is being paid and CB have not responded to 4 letters.

We filed an appeal at tribunal in Dec 2020 , involved our MP ,complained to ICE and reported CB fraud . In the meantime CMS have issued a deduction order against my partners bank even though we have been disputing maintenance liability for over a year. CMS ALSO FAILED TO RESPOND TO COURT DIRECTIONS TO FORWARD A RESPONSE TO HIS APPEAL WITHIN 28 DAYS LAST DECEMBER AND HAVE NOW BEEN ALLOWED A FURTHER 28 DAYS TO APPEAL SOME 5 MONTHS LATER … What a joke!!

We have so much supporting evidence to prove national eligibility rules which are clearly defined on GOV.UK which state CB will pay for a child up to the age of 20 who remains in full time education of more than 12 hours per week.

There is a serious flaw in CB POLICY which doesn’t require any evidence from the receiving parent that the child attends college for more than 12 hours a week.

My partner has been desperately trying to resolve this dispute for over a year in an attempt to avoid wasting valuable court time.

By receiving CB the receiving parent is then entitled to working tax credits , child tax credits and child maintenance.

This benefit fraud is not being recognised.

We have spoken to CB helpline several times and they always confirm we are correct and that CB is not eligible under 12 hours per week supervised study, but that’s as far as it gets . They cant even provide an email address or direct postal address for us to send all the supporting evidence again to ensure the facts are acted upon.

CB and CMS simply believe the Mother is telling the truth based on ZERO evidence.

Still hoping justice will prevail eventually , but the stress and anxiety this has caused is overwhelming.

CSA: a thieving, government-run scam!

June 1, 2021

What a total fuck up this csa is, as to be expected it is a government run scam, that takes monies from fathers, sometimes mothers too i hope bank accounts. WHY!!! Because they think they have the right to do what they want when they want with no repercussions.

WELL!!!! Its about time that all government employees stand up and take responsibility for their actions be they right or wrong. With CSA it appears to be more in the wrong. How you bastards can move the goal posts when it suits you tells me two things, one is that you are incompitent in your job roles, or two, you like to ri[ hard earning people off, by taking what isnt yours you thieving bastards.

Be reasonable – 25% of your wage is fair!

May 24, 2021

I feel the 16% I pay for my two Children which equates in reality to 25% of my wage once tax is deducted is fair!

Thats right guys 25% of your wage for your Children to live a healthy and good lifestyle makes absolute sense.

But I also pay the Mortgage which means I don’t have enough to live on myself, but hopefully the courts will settle the matter soon.

I guess what I’m getting at is even if I was to go self employed I would still give my ex 25% as I will feel like I have failed as a parent if they didn’t have a good lifestyle.

I just wish my ex took a bit of pity and Mercy in my current situation and gave me some financial relief, as if I was a different person I may have quit my job or committed suicide by now.

But I know it won’t be forever and if my kids have a good roof over their heads and all I’m paying is 25% of my wage, then I can finally and almost emotionally move on with my life, just a shame its taken 4 years to get to this point!

Just try and be reasonable and when emotions run high, remember your children matter most.

Greedy wife earns twice as much and is financially crippling me!

May 17, 2021

I split up with my wife February 2020. We came to an arrangement of £255 a month maintenance I have two kids who are three and one she asked me for a recent wage slip so she knew I was paying the right amount. She asked me for £285 another which I cannot afford so I decided to go through CMS get it sorted properly…. BIG FUCKING MISTAKE… they worked it out to £291.91 and told me she had no right to ask me for a wage slip and advised me not to make a payment in May 2021 and start paying her by direct debit starting from June 2021.

I informed my wife of this she wasn’t happy and asked CMS to recalculate it that are now saying I have to pay £295 a month with £374 arrears… after I’ve paid my rent together with CMS payments I’ll have less than £500 a month to live on and that’s before utilities and food is taken out its gonna cripple me… my wife earns nearly twice as much as me and tells me she is struggling for money but sends me pictures of my three year old daughter having her ears peirce costing £50 and a new car on finance and is going on holiday twice this year I just feel like I’m being taken for a mug.

CSA: men-hating feminists!

May 4, 2021

Having spent over £12,000 to actually see my kids, the mother of the children then went running to the CSA to see how much more money coud be extracted from me, even though she said she wouldn’t..

The CSA have been persuing me for years now, even with threats of prison, they put a charging order on a property I was investing in for the kids and even stole over £8000 from a bank account and are still persuing me,even though the kids are looked after financially by me and want for nothing.

The property I had the charging order slapped on was an investment for the girls but even so, I stopped paying the mortgage as I thought this was a massive injustice. When you speak to anyone of the arseholes that work for the CSA, it soon becomes pretty clear that they are not at all interested in the children, just money, pretty much like the mother of my kids.

As with every institution in this country, men are seen as the lowest of the low and consequently are treateed with absolute contempt.Facts and the well being of the children are irrelivant where the CSA is concerned, just as with most of the claimants.

I would like someone in government to do a study to find out how much the CSA has actually cost the tax system in this country, because I know of people who are prepared to sacrifice their jobs and careers just to escape the clutches of the CSA and its grasping ways.

The CSA should be disbanded immediately as all it does is ruin lives and relationships and I dare say with some conviction, costs the country as a whole millions in the tax take.

High CSA payments mean I might have to quit work!

April 16, 2021

I split with my wife jan 2020, first 4 months I gave her 180 for my 2 sons. Then lockdown happened and I was furlonged and also lost my shift allowance in work.

We were on speaking terms then and because I took them out everyday and treated them she agreed that was fine as she didn’t need it as her social life was zero. I then lost my job then got another one as a keyworker. I immediately got my own little place for me and my 2 sons. I work everyday Monday to Friday then I have the boys Fri, Sat and Sunday night. I clothe, Feed them and make sure they have the usual things. The ex has never asked for money and we have always said if the enevitable split did happen we woukdnt go down this route.

She has a new bloke how is moving in with her after 6 months so she will loose her universal credit.

Seems like I’m the cash cow.

She has them the 4 nights during the week. I cant as I work shifts and it woukd mean them being on their own which I woukd never do.

And she has everyweekend free to do whatever. She never calls or text the boys. Out of sight out of mind.

So I’ve been hit by the csa for just over 500 per month. I earn 1600 a month. After my rent, car (which I need to get to work) bills, petrol, food cloths im just about getting by without this CSA payment.

Do they listen though? No.

Its no wonder there is so much mental issues and suicides.

I have to probably quit work as its just not possible to pay.

It all seems unfair and it seems there’s no help whichever way you turn.
