CSA sent me to prison and still expected me to pay!

April 1, 2021

23yrs ago, ex accepted £27,500 as settlement of divorce. CSA got involved and you cannot imagine the amount of paperwork you have to fill in back then, you always felt it was a waste of time as they never seem to take much notice of you circumstance’s. however agreement was reached for weekly payment, always keep up to date. ex appealed, turned down, ex appealed again, turned down. independent hearing ex turned down. whilst this was ongoing, ex always withheld my access to the two children awarded by the courts, she was warned that the CSA should not be used to stop access.

my solicitor provided all documentation to prove the payments were up to date, it was the CSA that had not paid her. From then on it just went out of control the CSA were in a different world, claiming that the arrears were now £78,000 when i believe if my memory is correct based on a weekly income of about £250 per week. The CSA claim to have a protected income rate, so that you have enough to live on this was and is utter nonsense. When they deducted monies from wages, left me £130 below their protected earnings rate, As this would mean my out goings were more than my income and the CSA were not interested and would never accept their claim of £78,000 left the UK.

10yrs ago CSA said I would go to prison if I did not pay £42,000 went to prison for the maximum 6wks. Didn’t know at the time that if you are a murderer or rapist, when you come out of prison you are a free man, not so the CSA, you still owe the money. This is why the CSA is set up so wrong, in their Ivory towers lost all reason with the real world. They want you to pay, how do you earn in prison, threaten to take away driving license, probaly no work
