CSA say I owe them £30,000

June 23, 2009

i have 2 children who i used to pay CSA for then i lost my job and things got messy so i didnt pay I do not dispute that if i have to pay thats it but recently i received a letter saying i owed £30,000 i wrote to them but no reply I then a couple of months later got a letter saying i owed them 14.500 and they were going to take it from my employer monthly approx £400 a month.

I have now received as letter saying that i have to pay £8,000 within seven days or they will get an order for this. I phoned them and got the jobs worth answer. (we are following procedure because you owe more than £13000 we are obtaing an order to recover £8000 imediatly, unless you can pay this by debit or credit card within 2 days (of the call I was making) I was polite and asked for an expanation to this i got you can attend court but we will get the order as a matter of course.

i asked what happened then and was told we will then need to arrange to collect it by direct debit or in full. i asked what happens if i dont have it to which i was told it will be passed to an agency to collect i once again explained i dont have it and he skirted the answer but basically sound as if they will then take goods to the value of (not that i have that much)during the conversation it was difficult to get him to say this *000 was part of the 14500 or extra and he also said well there is a 5000 outstanding i asked how many more figures were they going to come up with and of course he said he was only following procedure.

Im totally lost my children are now 24 and 27 during part of ther egrowing up i was out of work. no doubt if i die tommorow the CSA will be at the funeral to collect the money

    Hi Ian,

    When you lost your job, did you notify the agency?

    As with other cases on here, we need more info before advice can be given.
