CSA payments have crippled me

March 23, 2010

I was divorced just as the csa came into force and the payments i had to make crippled me.

I had started a new realationship and this killed it. I then remarried and had two children,but this marriage didnt last mainly because of the money i had to pay the csa.So now i had two cases,and for awhile i didnt pay due to unemployment and other issues,last year i had a letter saying i owed £15000, and if i didnt pay i would have a libility order against me. I had one paying in slip with the letter as if i could make one payment,its a joke.

I had the order served against me and was paying over £500 a month, then i was made redundant, i had a phone call saying the bailiffs were going to come round etc etc. I cant afford the payments anymore as iam on job seekers allowance. They expect me to pay £50 weekly which leaves me nothing. i have had csa hell since it came out, i have had two broken marriages, debts and a bankcrupt order against myself, i have had enough, my new partner has had enough!

Can you help i just cant go on anymore,there is no peace or calm in my life,i hate it.

    You cant win with them whatever happens. Im annoyed that my ex now pays via the CSA all the money I should have got to a women on benefits (never worked and another child by another man also, that he was with briefly, whilst working and her claiming etc) and uses another name, I never got any of that money to support my children and I worked and she gets all her benefit money too, in fact she is probably better off then me and even though I have told them what he is up to, no one cares.
