What to say at CSA Tribunal?

July 27, 2010

My ex husband and I split up in 2008 despite solicitors requests for maintenance payments he wouldn’t pay a reasonable fixed amount, so I went to the CSA. He didn’t fill in any paperwork so they estimated his salary at £17,000. I said this was far less than he had ever earnt. They said I could appeal but as I knew he hadnt filled in any tax returns I had no evidence.

In January 09 they asked him for some evidence. He produced two payslips that said he earnt £118 per week!!!!!!

He is doing an extension around the corner. I appealed and because in his response to my appeal document Read more

CSA case workers are rude and ignorant

July 26, 2010

I’ve been speaking to the CSA on behalf of my partner who has had a real rough time and isnt well enough to be dealing with vile CSA case workers. The woman on the phone said to me repeatedly ‘that little boy’s had nothing from his father‘.

I told her to stop saying that – and explained everything that we do our end i.e he has a full wardrobe here, we take him on holiday, we have him 3 days a week so its not like we only see him twice a month… he is spoilt rotten and has a damn site more compared to most kids!! Again the lady kept repeating that little boys had NOTHING from his father. So I told her she was insulting me and I’d worked very hard to make sure he was properly provided for at his father’s end. In the end, she backed down and said it Read more

Chef beat ex-wife to death following Facebook CSA taunt

July 26, 2010

A court has heard how a chef brutally killed his ex partner following taunts she had written on Facebook after reporting him to the CSA.

Jurors attending the Old Bailey were told of how Adam Mann, of Springfield Road, Bexley, used a hammer to cudgel Lisa Beverley.

The 30-year-old sustained appalling wounds to her chest, neck and head. Her body was discovered by their son, who was five years of age at the time, on September 16th, 2009, who then contacted his grandparents by phone.

The couple were wed in 2001 and divorced by 2007, with their relationship deteriorating even more in the following two years. Mann, 29, who was employed as a cook at a Dartford based Harvester restaurant, is accused of killing his ex partner following the receipt of a demand from the Child Support Agency to pay £400 arrears.

Ms Beverley had contacted the CSA for help and updated her status on social networking site Facebook the day prior to her murder. It said:

“”Now who’s laughing? You have got done big time by the CSA so now leave us alone for good. Your son hates you and so do I.”

The following day, Mann contacted the CSA and claimed Read more

CSA won’t take our private agreement into account

I’m out of work at the moment & my husband brings home £1100 pound a month. Our out goings for the month are 970 so we have been left in financial hardship and cannot afford to pay what we owe out. We rang the csa & told them Read more

Payments made direct to ex ‘do not count’ says CSA

July 24, 2010

I agreed to pay maintenance direct back in 2006 to ex, but csa updated there system one week later to say i should be paying them.

Then in oct 2009 recieved notice of over 4k arrears. They went down the DEO route. I have tried to complain, done the independant case route, but still no joy in getting this sorted.

They have given me the right of appeal but csa state that any payments direct to ex will not be taken into consideration as i did not keep reciepts. Can anybody give me any advice on what route to try next?

CSA case worker hung up the phone on me

July 24, 2010

My daughter is sixteen on the 25th of July. Despite contacting the CSA when she was three years old, I haven’t received a penny from her father. She is almost 16 now and I have brought her up on my own entirely.

It has been a struggle and I am disgusted that someone can bring a child into the world but not feel any responsibility towards their upkeep. As for the CSA I stopped bothering them as they didn’t do anything to get the money off my ex-partner because I was working and not claiming benefits. At one point, someone put the phone down on me saying they were not paid enough to ‘take this shit!’

The CSA have let my child down big time; although she has had everything I could provide, she would have had more if she’d just received a little bit from her ‘father’ – I use the term loosely!
