I’ve had to leave my property – what now?

January 10, 2022

CMS taking £900 a month. Won’t drop from my earnings my company car benefit saying it’s £15,000 a year, but I don’t take that home! I actually pay out of my wages for my car.

Paid for my child all her life now her mum wants it going through these animals a month as she knows she will get more.

Had to leave my property and move in with my parents who are almost 70 years old, covid around and I have to go out for work endangering my parents. How is any of this fair? Surely there is something we can do to end all this?

CSA rejecting our claim – help!

January 7, 2022

Not sure if you can advise, we are at our wits end with the CSA. Grandaughter’s father stopped contact back in July and has not paid for her since. The CSA are going around in circles telling us that as he was not working for 1 week in August (he has been ever since) they are rejecting our claim. They can see he is working and have also confirmed to us that they can see this. We also know where he works. The CSA now want to raise yet another change in circumstances (4th one so far) which will take even longer for them to tell the same thing again. Any advice would be appreciated. Even getting through to someone is a minor miracle and if they don’t cut you off, that’s a bonus!

Is your latest tax calculation evidence of earnings?

December 16, 2021

Hi guys

I won’t go through to much of a spill as the majority of my plight is similar to the rest, safe to say I also have an evil ex partner who has very few morals and hell bent on causing as much anguish as possible.

I went self employed in 2020, which obviously caused the other party to throw hissy fit after hissy fit, at first the cms advised I would have to continue paying the calculated amount from the previous tax year, which I disputed, as financial speaking my taxable income dropped significantly. They then advised I would have to show evidence of what I’m earning or may earn to which I responded with an amount and certain evidence!

This has fallen on deaf ears now for nearly 2 years, now 56 letters , 78 text messages , 41 phone calls , money stolen from my bank , and threats of asset seizure and passport / driving licence bans later in no nearer solving there mesmerising equations on evidence and financial prof !! ( those figures are real )

So last month I obtained from HMRC exactly what I earnt and what I was taxed in the form of a tax calculation and promptly sent it over on the online portal. This has now ( today ) been rejected as evidence – my argument with the inept employee on the phone was “ this is exactly how you calculate your yearly reviews , through HMRC tax calculations “ I was told we can do that but you can’t !!!! I asked what exactly can be handed over as evidence of earnings if a tax calculation cannot – I was told my projected earnings , which I’ve sent over 9 times now !

So question is guys ,

1 : is your latest tax calculation evidence or not of earnings ?

2 : am I legally obligated to sign on the doll ?? As I’ve been told now I can not “ just not work” as they will still accrue what they deem I owe ??

Absolute madness !!

I’ve contacted my local MP ( who I’ve now found out has interests in this scam continuing – much like David Cameron)

I’ve also made at least 10 complaints to various authority’s who don’t really want to know !

We live in an age of equality ( what is equal about charging a man 20% fees and a woman 4% ?? It’s a total farce and the more people who ignore this rubbish the better .

Court order vs CSA!

December 14, 2021

Background information my ex left me for the 4th times x2 adultery. We was together 15 years married 12 years. I have 2 children aged 8 and 3. I have had constant problems getting access to my children and went to court to get this.

I am cutting this part very short it’s unbelievable what she’s done and doing I could write a novel.

Just like the many cases I have read on here, my experience of the CSA is very similar.

I have a court order stating I have equal joint custody although it is made up of 5 overnight stays and x2 evening. Over 2 weeks. So 50% custody.

The CSA in my experience are a law of there own. Every person you speak to gives you different answers, there advice has been wrong on numerous occasions. It is a very 1 sided service, I contacted October about my court order it is still unactioned. I purposely with every intention of paying back my arrears did not pay this month, so my ex would contact the service as they was not responding to my messages. I was contacted the day after she contacted them, yet my request had been ignored for 2 months.

I have sent numerous messages and evidence supporting my claims of how and what I do for my children. Including my court order.

I then finally get a response and my letter does not indicate any details on what it was about how they have investigated or anything really, it basically just said we have investigated your claims and your ex partner does not agree with your claims.

So basically the court order I sent in is fake and I am a liar as my ex said its not true.

(if my ex said the world was flat it must be true because she said it is).

If you don’t agree with this letter you can appeal.

That’s great if I knew what I was appealing against and could resubmit the evidence.

I am getting nowhere with the CSA. My next step is my local MP.

Any more advice would be appreciated.

The CSA are the worst organisation I have ever been involved with, the staff are rude, unhelpful and like I say can make up there own rules. I will keep battling.

Good luck all.

Is there any point carrying on?

December 13, 2021

So I have been forced out of my home, because my wife decided she didn’t love me anymore (denied me sex for 3 years, forced me to work a 2nd job while she cut her hours down) I only see my kids for one weekend in two, they can’t stay overnight because of the awful council tenants causing noise 24/7 above my father’s maisonette (where I am staying.

I am paying off debt accrued during my marriage, and trying to save for a deposit to move out.

I paid, in a private arrangement, 400gbp per month for my two girls (who I miss so much) and I stopped for one month in an effort to get my wife to sign the Financial agreement I had drawn up as part of my divorce.

She has been stalling for months, and I have had to take such a paltry amount (after she lied about getting legal advice on the monetary amount she was due to give me).

She refuses to communicate, yet I withhold payment once, in a desperate effort to get her moving on the finances and lo and behold the CSA get in contact within 24 hours demanding.

Why on earth is the receding parents’ income not taken into account? She earns twice what I do, has a permanent roof over her head??

I had to cancel taking my girls to Peppard pig World as I couldn’t afford it, but the 400gbp I had to give my wife meant my daughters won’t instead with her. I was devastated.

If I get a promotion at work; I end up paying more (for whatever reason) if she gets paid more; it has no impact.

Who on earth thinks this is fair? The whole system is ramapantly semester, even the examples in the booklet the CSA provides is about a man giving a woman money – as if its a god given right?

It does not coat 400gbp a month to cloth and feed two children, who comes up with this garbage?

So currently I’m in a home that can be taken away from me whenever my father feels like it, I have no money to save for a deposit and can’t see my kids overnight due to the mongoloids that live above me.

Any point carrying on?

CSA: total rubbish!

November 22, 2021

They are total scams they take money and make up there own rules! As a paying father for 3 kids on doe I give them my years salary and they take the money. Then half way down the line in the year they want to double my payment and say your payment have changed because a low and increase has happened. Yes it has I not been well for 4 months due to my mental illness and health now they want to charge me double the amount I was paying before.

This is an absolute joke every child no matter what job or what you earn should get the same but if I was on benefits I’d have to pay 7 pound a week, but no I have to pay 800 a month and can’t do nothing about it unless I got self employed.

Please read to stop CMS corruption!

November 18, 2021

Guy’s further to my comment above. Please read article and follow and contact Brian Hudson who is campaigning to reform the CMS. He also has a pre-written letter to send to your local MPs. Guy’s we really need to take action in order to change the CMS with us coming together with significant numbers and persistently campaigning anything is possible.

Brian Hudson highlights the suicides the CMS are responsible for and the amount of money collected since 2015 till now through collect and pay which has increased from over a million to over 40 million. This agency is a corrupt govt agency to fleece non-resident parents, collect additional tax from us and drive us to suicide. Please read article and check out Brian Hudson and share letter with MP: https://www.stopcmsdrivingsuicide.org/read-full-report

This institution needs looking at!

November 16, 2021

My partner ex went with CSA so she can get more money off him even though she knew we will have kid so and we siad we go e £50 a week she went 5 year ego and we need to pay 100 a week for 2 kids, my partner can’t afford paying this because ;

Rent all bills and all food clothes and petrol his and hers dept she left him with 25k and she never paid a penny off it. His out going is over 2.500 a mouth but CSA won’t look on his outgoing. She bought house 2 cars got married 2 holiday each year and lot savings then she having her nephew fostering 2 disbllity benefits 2 maintenance one off them is CSA universal credit tax credit ect and now she work she won’t addmit she got Saving but he need to struggle she don’t need 500 a mouth off him.

Those 100 Go on her spending and her going out to pubs this is such not fair CSA need looking into dad outgoing not just income !!!!

Let’s band together and reform the CMS!

November 2, 2021

Guy’s we are all in the same boat and i believe all if not most of us are decent loving parents who just want to support our children and be able to live reasonably.

My gross income has been inflated by over £7k and that’s what my calculations have been based on which is totally unfair and my evil son’s mother is trying to punish and financially cripple me by using the collect and pay service. We all need to come together and find ways we can either act by civil protest or collectively push for the CMS to be fairly reformed we can’t sit here just complaining we must take some form of action.

Here’s my email whoever is with me please email and let’s get together to change this. Otherwise, we’ve all got a life sentence of being extorted and living a miserable life of depression life is way too short and I’m sure we all want to be able to create beautiful memories with our children but we can’t where we are living on the breadline and under constant pressure of enforcement action due to missed payments or threats of being evicted or having our homes repossessed.

Ex won’t take calls and CSA bankrupting me!

October 15, 2021

I split from my ex over 3 years ago, and have been paying £300 a month for my 3 kids. I walked away from the majority of the property we shared, taking a £12k payment off her and giving her and my kids the remaining £210k.

She has now sold the house and moved into a new property (£250k). My ex has never asked for any more money from me, but I’ve just had a letter from CMS saying they have now put in place an order to take the money straight from my employer. I live in a rented property with my new partner, and we hoped at some point we’d be able to save up enough to buy our own house, I doubt this is going to happen now.

The order (with the 20% I have to pay them) works out to just short of £600 per month. I don’t know how I’m going to cope, this will leave me with about £100 a week for food. My ex will only allow me to have my kids fri-sun every other weekend. I’ve asked her if she will accept direct pay again, but she is now ignoring my messages, so looks like I will have to just accept the 20% fee they charge me.

I’d rather my kids had this money, and happy to consider paying more, but how the hell and I going to live????? I’ve got to speak to CMS on Monday, but I’m not too hopeful
