How can a proven benefit cheat make false CSA claims?

December 22, 2014

Hi am after some advice. I had a phone call from the ex laughing as she said the CSA had told her i owed her so much money if i had not paid her any maintenance so as she likes to try and mess me about as much as she can she told them that i had not paid her any at all which as she admits to me is a lie but they beleive her.

I pick my son up or did every other week as per a court order but she always makes me give her cash before i am aloud to take him she refused to sign anything if i did not give her the money i did not get my son. This has gone on for years.

A couple of times she needed money (we lived 109 miles apart) so i did pay into her bank account. As I had not got any signed notes or had not got the bank to put on transfers for child maintence payment they say it could have been for anything and i owe the money even thou she has been done for benefit fraud twice they just take her word for it and that i am guilty of what she says.

I must add that when i asked the guy on the phone he said and i qoute to be honest your an easy target, you work. I refused to pay and had not heard any thing from them for years until this year when my son turned 19 saying i owed over double what they said.

1st how can they phone her and say she is owed money 2nd how can someone with a proven record of benefit fraud still make false claims like this and they listern. 3rd how can the amount have to pay go up when my son has not lived with her since he turned 16 as she kicked him out as new boyfriend did not like him and has been in care with social services and now in a homeless shelter as he will not move to were i live away from his friends.

And lastly how come they stopped contacting me for years and then suddenerly say i owe over 5k when i pay every month until he left home. I have now been hit with a direct payment order which will cripple me as i now have a 3month old Daughter which they say does not matter as she was born after the case was closed.

So i they are taking money to pay for a child i have already paid for which means i cannot feed the child i live with, how does that work?

Any advice would be very helpful. Cheers.

Being left on hold by CSA

December 22, 2014

Hi, I have been trying to contact the CSA by phone for a couple of days now to no avail.

As it is 08 numbers they use I am being charged to be on ” hold ” for 5 10 and even 15 minutes.

I have probably got to pay £4 so far in calls and I have yet to speak to anyone.

Can I apply for CSA?

December 21, 2014

I have lived on benefits for sixteen years my son is age sixteen goes to collage full time and is disabled.

My ex has never paid a penny matienance.

Can i apply to the csa for matienance payments?

The CSA is designed to extort

December 21, 2014

The Saga continues… 4 weeks ago the CSA told me that the child was no longer eligible for CSA payments. This had been the case for over one year.

A few days ago, the CSA took their normal monthly deduction (approx. £300) from my earnings. Yes, the DOE is still active and no arrears are involved.

I would like to say that the CSA is an enigma, wrapped up in incompetency and tied together with mismanagement.

But they are not. Their system is designed to extort and hold on to as much money as possible, regardless of rules and regulations. They are just another legal racket.

The CSA is not fair to good fathers

December 21, 2014

My partner has his 2 children 3 times overnight one week 2 overnight back after tea, in my view is shared care he takes all local public hoildays a week at summer and over Christmas.

All there clothes they have at my house i have bougth etc. he pays for his kid but his ex wants moreand more now i feel bad for thinking the csa would be far, because the his ex has put in a counter claim and thats it.

They benifit the mothers and it not fair on good dads.

December 20, 2014

Will I still have to make CSA payments in full if I am declared bankrupt?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for helping us to escape the CSA

December 20, 2014

Just to update everyone on the situation with regard to getting our money back from the CSA.

My husband badgered them on the phone once a week every week since they told us our money was ‘in archive’. This eventually paid off.

We received £53.38 back on 1.12.14.and £110.57 on 15.12.14.We now never have to deal with the CSA again as our case is now closed.

Thanks everyone for their advice.
