CSA take a woman’s word over a man’s

July 29, 2010

I am a nrp since 2007 and have two children. I gave my wife 70% of our assets and moved out. I payed maintenance Voluntarily calculated at the CSA rate. But surprise, surprise I got a letter from the CSA saying I had to respond or they would take me to court for non payment. Luckily I had proof as I had paid by cheque. Why did my ex report me 1. She thought she would get the money twice over 2. She was greedy and was hoping for more.

I then told the CSA how many nights I had the children and they lowered maintenance slightly. It suddenly went up again without any notice. When I rang the CSA they said my ex had stated I had them for 3 nights when infact in this period of time I had them for nineteen nights. Fraud! Did they do any thing? Warn her, send her letters. No!

I had to prove I had them for those nineteen nights which I did which took a lot of time. I work fulltime as registered nurse. My Ex does not work (she does not need to), although she did when we were together.

The CSA are useless they do not look after the best interests of either parent or more importantly my children. I want to support my children not be taxed for them. My ex has a large chunk of my income every month and I don’t believe it is being spent on the children.

The CSA are totally incompetent and I believe our children deserve better.

    my husband was paying his ex wife £100 a week for over a year he had a receipt book which he had her sign every week when he gave her the money and even his fiend took it to her a couple of times and got her to sign the book. she was getting income support and still is then csa contacted him and said he owed a years back dated sent off the book proving we had paid her and in actual fact 3 times over what csa said he had to pay her, but she said he didn’t and even with the receipt book they took her word over his and he had to pay back all the arrears he had already paid her. now he is self employed and he pays his taxes which pays for her benefits and he has to pay her maintenance on top so he’s paying for her twice how is that fair she gets to keep all benefits his tax pays for and she gets to keep all maintenance why should she get a job like the rest of us and the goverment say they want to stop people getting benefits
