I’m wondering how I go about making sure my ex can’t see the baby with out me there.

Where is the fairness in these arbitrary dates?

November 29, 2014

How is it fair that if a case is opened before 2003 that the partners income is taken into account and after that date it is not.

Where is the fairness ant what is the rational for that? It’s an unfair system.

CSA maladministration has left me out of pocket

November 29, 2014

After several letters of complaint, I received a letter from CSA this morning.

It states that ‘….liability for child deductions ended in October 2013.’

It also stated that ‘….investigations need to be carried out to see if any arrears are due.’

Point One- According to their letter, CSA have been carrying out unlawful deductions from me since October 2013 to date. This amounts to a few thousand pounds.

Point Two – How can there be any arrears considering a few thousand pounds are owed to me.

Additionally, CSA recently sent me an annual statement indicating that arrears is zero? THERE was no mention of reimbursement or compensation in the letter.

Should I be paying CSA if the child lives with me?

November 29, 2014

I pay for my son’s maintenance via CSA and have done for 14 years, not a problem I’m happy to pay.

Three weeks ago I got a call from my son’s school (he’s in 6th form aged 16 1/2) saying that his mum didn’t want him back as their relationship has broken down. I agreed that he could come and live with me until things are sorted, or permanently if required.

My question is should I be paying CSA if he’s living with me (allbeit maybe temporarily – I just don’t know what’s going to happen she says she won’t have him back until the social services get involved and that seems to be taking a while)?

At the moment I’m paying his mother via CSA for his keep, but keeping him myself!

Many thanks in advance.

How can the CSA take so much from my severance package?

November 28, 2014

I am a nrp my children the oldest being 23 the youngest being 21 I have a csa debt they are collecting 4months ago I was signed off sick from work with back problems I’m awaiting an m r I scan.

The csa did an attachment to earnings order on me and gave me a protected earning rate of £204.00 but have been unable to collect as I’m on sick pay.today I was notified my company had not renewed my contract so played me all monies owed including holiday pay so after 4months of living on £87.00 a week I thought the extra would come in handy as I have 3dependent children living with me including my 5year old twins.

So I checked my wage slip found I had been paid £669.67 gross then looked what my take home was £199 so after tax and insurance the csa had taken £343.27.

Now how can this be fair when challenged I was told even if you have over paid you probably won’t get it back if you owe a debt.

What happens if the CSA does not follow procedure?

November 28, 2014

CSA has strung me along

November 27, 2014

I called for a dna and they said i had to wait for paperwork which still to this day i haven’t recieved .

My mother started calling csa on my behalf as i am not confident talking on the phone and need help to understand what’s going on every week we have called and still have gotten nowhere as i received a letter via facebook from my ex showing a letter that claims from the csa that i denied a dna test which i didn’t.

I said when i first called up that i would pay for dna test my mum then called up again as we have never denied dna test we just want to know whether i am the father to this child which i am confident i am not.

Every time my mother asks to speak to the caseworker who runs they are never there until today when she spoke to him for the first time and he said it was the first time he had seen this case which he and only he is the caseworker for . we have received no letters other than threatening debt collection letters which i shouldn’t be receiving as i am paying for my 2 children privately to there mother herself.

My mother asked to speak to a manager as we are so frustrated and upset by this whole ordeal caused by the csa about the dna for this child and they are now telling me it’s my fault as i have not provided evidence why i’m not the father and i never heard of this until today they are also not putting us trough to managers they are apparently always in meetings.

I feel because i am the person of the receiving end trying to sort my problems out they are neglecting me. all i want is to prove this child isn’t mine and move on with my life and do right for my 2 children who i pay weekly for and my step daughter . now i have to wait for more paperwork to come through the post which i am worried won’t turn up like so many letters they have claimed to send to me.

It’s been 10 weeks since this started and i am so stressed out by this and nothing is getting sorted is there anyway you can help me?
