CSA taking us to court for thousands

February 3, 2012

I am speaking on behalf of my ex partner, he paid the mortgage on his and his ex partner from November 2006 and April 2007, she has confirmed this and asked him to pay this instead if her receiving child support. However the CSA have decided he should pay support anyway on top of this and have taken a case out against him. Then as a self-employed bricklayer he could not provide exact earnings, so they asked for estimates until his earning where given. I have always agreed to pay CSA and always given them the earnings they need to base the payments on. We have suspended out payments for the last thirteen months until the sort out these issues but just claim as a working man he should pay what they want based on earnings from years ago.

I have attempted to call them several times and I am just meet with rudeness and stupidity and false information. One person says one thing another person says something else. We really need help in getting this situation resolved, we are happy to pay as long as it is fair and they are reasonable.

They are now taking us to court and claim we owe thousands despite the fact we have over paid far more but they claim it is not their legal obligation to repay the money. If we owe them we have court letter and suspended passports and bank accounts they owe us and its just ok!!

    What date did the CSA become involved?
    How many children is the CSA case for?
    How many children live with you & your OH?
    Was the PWC on benefits between November 2006 and April 2007?
    Does you OH have any legal/financial rights in the property?
    Although your OH hasn’t paid the CSA, has he put money to one side during the past 13 months for child support?

    A NRP is still responsible to continue paying the amount calculated by the CSA whilst waiting for a revision or CofC to be calculated, at which time any over or underpayment can be adjusted.

    on thursday my husband was in court with the csa as they went for the final charging order on our home, because we cant pay back £18K of arrears that we supposedly owe because they say we never informed them of a change of circumstances (long storey) we have a 2 yr old and a 5 week old and for the last year we have been making payments to the csa to show willing but obviously not at the amount they wanted (my husband is self employed) hence them just bulldosing ahead and threatening to take our home and then 2 days before xmas the letter arrived with the court date.

    Anyway the charging order was granted but the judge did assure us that we wouldnt loose our home as long as we carried on making the paymets that we have been.

    i cannot believe how we as a family have been treated by the CSA, they have just put us through two years of hell. Our children havent mattered to them, they have just threatened us with “dont worry we will take your home”

    so yesterday as we begin to pick ourselves up and realise we will be paying this debt off for the rest of our days, my husband gets a phone call, he mouths to me “its the CSA” They are carrying out a satisfaction survey !!!!

    Anyone reading this, please inform the CSA of a change of circumstances and never do it by phone call, that was our mistake as they now deny ever receiving the call, just wish we had done it by letter and we wouldnt be in this mess with them. You live and learn.
