Martin Jan, from CSA Birmingham, brags about going to Disney Land

August 4, 2014

Martin Jan, from the CSA in Birmingham, has sent out an ‘out of office’ reply from his email address to parents struggling to make ends meet bragging how he, and others at the CSA, are off to Disney Land in February next year.

It’s quite common to set an out of office on your email, so people emailing you know they’ll have to wait for you return to get a reply, but it’s also quite common to set a different one for internal and external emails. This way, Martin could have told parents who are unable to make ends meet financially that he’s away from the office and will reply to them on the 2nd of August, and could have told people at the CSA that he’s off to Disney Land, do they want to come along.

But no, instead Martin bragged to people who cannot afford Read more

Maria Miller, former CSA head, using tax payers’ money for her parents’ home

December 24, 2012

Maria Miller and the £90,000 second home for her parents.

It was nice to see the disgusting ex Minister of the CSA finally getting found out about claiming this money for a home her parents live in, tax payers money.

After overseeing the disgusting department that has cost the economy a small fortune and denied any working NRP an opportunity to a life following divorce, I hope she goes to jail, also our new minister Steve Webb has previous in this area.

How in Gods name can anyone vote for these people, Government morals are long gone.

They say it’s ok as it is legal and allowed for an MP to claim this. Time they changed the law then as this in the current climate is totally unacceptable Do you not think?….

Court ruling leaves child maintenance authority ’emasculated’

November 1, 2012

Absent parents failing to give financial support to their children could escape threatened jail time after a governmental group lost a court case to pursue arrears of child support.

Experienced judges said the lack of authority would mean the regime of enforcing child maintenance payments would be “completely emasculated”.

A ruling from The Court of Appeal showed that “muddled” processes that the Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission (CMEC) used in two different cases of absent fathers had gone so far as to affect the human rights of the fathers. The Court of Appeal ordered that urgent steps should be taken to correct the procedures.

The ruling threw out the possibility of jail for the two men and was made, according to Lord Justice Ward, with “considerable reluctance”. The two men were alleged to have owed around £13,000 in unpaid child maintenance.

Ward acknowledged that the ruling was likely to remove the clout from the CMEC but added that these powers were Read more

Ex paid CSA but I never received money

August 27, 2012

I contacted the CSA after I divorced the father of my two children, as advised by the local social security office. My ex husband made the relevant payments to the csa, but I never received any payments from them. It amounts to almost £900.

I have rung them on too many occassions to list, and have been told to seek legal advice as to getting the payments. I have told csa I will persue it legally but they still did not move on it.

My ex-husband has also contacted them on many occassions requesting the money returned or paid…its almost two years now and still no joy.

That money is rightfully belonging to my children for essentialas for their care… yet CSA still havent paid it!!

Where is the justice in that?
