How can the CSA just assume that I’m the parent?

January 28, 2015

I have been presumed as the parent of a boy who is now 10 yrs old. I found out last year that the original documents sent out to me was sent to an address I had not lived at for over 5 years.

I was not aware of this and only found out the csa was involved when money was taken from my jsa as I was unemployed at the time. I never got the chance to acknowledge nor deny parentage due to them sending the documents to a wrong address.

I have been in contact with the csa so many times but they do not want to help. I have not been able to afford a dna whilst unemployed but the child’s mother would not let me either. I was not in a relationship with his mother not married to her and not named on the birth certificate.

How can parentage be assumed because I’ve not done a dna test due to the fact the mother will not let me. A declaration of parentage will cost me £365 to take to court money I haven’t got.

I feel sick that I have to pay so much money out of my wages when I have 3 children and a wife to support. The csa tell me I have no right to complain or appeal the claim against me. I feel I should be able to appeal.

How can I get anything sorted when everything costs so much money. I’ve been paying maintenance since 2005 and have never been able to get any help or advice. I have been long term unemployed so had no funds nor knowledge of what I could do or who to ask for help.

What can my partner do to see his kid?

January 28, 2015

Hi I was just wondering where my partner stands. My partner has a son who is now 6. The last time he seen his son was when he was 1.

My partner pays csa faithfully every month for his son but whenever he has asked his ex for contact she refuses. Is there anything my partner can do?

How will my partner know if someone has adopted his son? He feels as though he’s waited too long.

Surely the CSA can’t reverse its own decision?

January 27, 2015

Last year I decided to start paying AVC’s into my company pension. I spoke to the CSA to see if the figures I proposed would be allowed, as they were quite high. After some consideration they said they would allow it in my case (because of my age).

Now 9 months later they have ‘changed their mind’ and say I must pay retrospectively – I’ve gone from zero arrears to £1000+ overnight.

Surely they can’t just reverse their own decision?

I can’t get the money back out from my pension now!

Can the CSA be charged with harassment?

January 27, 2015

Hi guys csa,cms contacted my work 6 months ago told them they was taking £179.80 direct from earnings each week.

After many calls to the CSA about how i have to pay so much for one son was beyond me and they said I have £4000 in back payment for the last two years witch I knew nothing about.

I split with my sons mum 5 years ago after2 weeks she got married and stoped me from seeing my so so had no contact and she lied to the CSA I told them the truth and they just said we dont believe you then I received a letter stating my sons name is now changed.

Then on November 28 2014 a new case opened for a potential daughter just paid for DNA test not got results but now they have joined the two wanting £90 a week being harassed by the CSA I’m now self employed witch make them more determind to get the money for a daughter that prob isn’t mine but the mum said I am even tho she got a injunction when she was born against me a son that name has been changed I have been told on his birth certificate having many chats with CSA over last month I’m now 5000 I dept …witch they have just pulled out there ass as they don’t even know earnings or any thing.

I find the CSA a total joke and a wast of time and they lie so much …can we get csa done for harassment and other question is if the CSA dont pay money out how can I owe them and I pay tax’s and they get child benefit and every thing els dam there better of Tha I ever will but cant she kids but hell have my money.

I want to pay less CSA to avoid claiming benefits

January 27, 2015

Hi, i want to move in with my girlfriend who is on benefits as she is a full time carer for her mum and i work full time and pay £104 a week csa for my twin boys who i don’t see.

I thought that she could stop getting benefits and i could pay the bills and the csa would take into consideration my ex wifes circumstances and see that she lives a great life and we would struggle if i still have to pay the full amount to the csa.

This is not fare both parties should be looked at as she works and does not pay tax and i pay far too much.please help us pay less csa so we can not claim benefits thankyou.

How can I get CSA over with?

January 26, 2015

Can the PWC accept a lump sum in Full and Final satisfaction of arrears and reinstate them in the future?

How can you protect yourself from this happening?

Is it enough to pay the lump sum to their account and get them to sign an agreement which will be sent to csa.

CSA told us to max our credit cards

January 26, 2015

Csa have recently got in touch with my partner about reaccessment and came back with an amount which he agreed to pay.

A few weeks later they got intouch again saying thr previous assessment werent done properly and that he had to pay more to which he arranged a higher monthly payment..they then said that his arrears were in region of £1800 and that they need payment.

After working out our finances we are unable to pay too much a month to clear this but he has offered to pay what he can..they have said its not enough and to max up his credit cards to which they checked up on,and that they will send enforcers round.

In my mind if he is seen to be paying something off arrears what exactly can they do..also can they only sieze goods that only he owns or can they take mine too because we live together??

Please can you let us know where we stand as hes worried to death over this..thankyou.

How should we deal with the CSA?

January 26, 2015

Hi, my hubby has a child from a previous relationship who he saw every weekend for 12 years with no problems, when he met me she decided to take him to the csa.

Then in nov 2010 my hubby had £113 taken directly from him wages without him even having any correspondence, the csa said he owned £15,000 in arrears??

They told him that it came under the old rules as a document had been sent to an old address that he hadn’t lived at for many years??, my hubby is honestly on the verge of a nervous breakdown, for 2 years he paid £60.00 a week which he paid with no complaints, apprantly his ex had told the csa that he has never seen the child?

Even though we have many many photos of my hubby and his daughter together, even photo’s of myself and my hubby’s daughter, i’m so worried about my hubbys welfare, is there anything we can do??

I also have a disabled child is there a reduction for this please i could do with some advice. Many Thanks.

The CSA should be shut down

January 25, 2015

Im a father of 4 and have very little dealings with the csa cos when i have it has been a compleat nightmare.

I have allways paid for my kids direct but when i have lost my job for what ever reason (not for long tho ) my exs went to the csa which was real hard to convince i dont owe monie i havent erend and cos there was a assesment in place and no change of sercomstancess was changed they dident care and wouldent change this even tho there was no payments going through them at all.

Not intrested unfair and not right it doesent matter how when and where if the monie hasent been erend csa can not dedmand the payments hence paied £76 csa must pay £ 85 really any way thats only the start in a nut shell im a father of 4 vwith 3 mothers i get on and have a very good relathionship with 2 not my ex wife mother of elderst only in the last 2 years tho ive allways paid.

Sometimes late or out of work but allwyas caught up my latest and my self wanted to go through the csa as it was sopposed to be easyer and convinent what a compleit cock up not only have they payed the money that should have gone to my ex they payed to my ex wife which i have had no dealing with for many years and on that point i took parental charge of my daughter for a year in 2011 and make a claim from my ex wife for payments and still to date not heard a word no chase up no letters no claim.

All i get is we are looking into it the agency shouild be shut down put back in to the courts a real person look at the claims ect csa are a joke a disscrace and ruiend my exmas 2012 cos of their mess ups my ex got no payments befor christmass but so much pressure on me many arguments and i was sopposed to spend christmas day with them due to their incompadence and lies this did not happen many thanks the csa no wonder so many mums and dads do a runner cos csa cors even more upset.

To put it blunt im a real p*ssed of dad that gives a toss about his kids.
