CSA terrible at keeping me in the loop

January 25, 2015

Csa Dudley dealing with my case twin boys of 16 not had a penny off these in yrs as dad was on sick so he didn’t have pay.

Got told they were taking 5 pounds off his benefits where is it as I haven’t heard off them in yonks.

Not very good at keeping myself updated. What can I do as I ant gettg no where?

Do the CSA’s own resolutions mean nothing?

January 24, 2015

Don’t know where to start really ! I’ve been battling the CSA for 7/8 years now over arrears that have always been wrong. At one stage they were chasing me for £34,000.

Last year my wife and I went to the resolution team and we finally got and admission from the CSA that they had got the arrears wrong. They issued me with a letter of apology and gave me £50 compensation.

We then agreed the arrears of just under £5000 and they said that they would be intouch to sort out a monthly payment plan. We heard nothing from them for months, when we did hear back from them it was the enforcement team chasing me for £13,000?????

We said to them that we had agreed the arrears with the resolution team but the enforcement team were not interested and everything we said fell on deaf ears. So now I’m back to square one the same place I was 8 years ago. Not sure what to do now as I’m banging my head against the same brick wall I was 8 years ago!!

How can we make the CSA listen?

My partner has recently had a claim put in December saying he should be paying £58 a week for his son and this is wrong.

We have sent payslips that prove this and come under their stupid 25% thing and they still wont reduce payments – what can we do to make them listen?

Would be easier if there was a face to face service then could shove the payslips in their faces!!!!!


Incompetent CSA means that I’m not paying the morally right amount

January 24, 2015

I have exhausted every single avenue to pay my ex wife for my two children. Currently i work for various agencies and the CSA had advised me to submit wage slips and a cover letter to them for re assessment.

I had done this at least five weeks ago to find out that they have been sent to another office or even lost , and advised to send them again. In the meantime i have been paying a flat rate to my ex for my two children which frankly is not enuff for me , but due to the insistance of the CSA , this is all i have to pay.

Untill re-assessment aftere AGAIN recieving my wage slips. With me being on a low income at present i feel that it will be a flat rate payment..but i have always been willing to pay my ex through a personal agreement..which i will use my savings to pay her..but she still refuses and also refuses maintenance direct. I dont know what to do.

I have offered her money directly into her acc but she does not want it,,,so it looks like flat rate it will be…which moraly hurts me..when i can pay her some more ..i just dont understand.

The CSA have been messing around with this for such a long time and it is now making me ill with anxiety.I paid my maintenace religiously for 6 years untill i became ill and lost my job. I had been on SSP and JSA allowance for a period and then some short time agency work , less than £100 pw..which still is the flat rate ,,but she refuses any more money from me..making me ill and anxious.

Any advise please? Thanks.

Does the CSA work anymore?

January 23, 2015

CSA is really becoming very difficult to deal with. I’ve had payments paid to me late and in some instances 2 months late. I’ve spent countless hours and money dealing with CSA to chase payment.

I recently spoke to CSA and one of the customer service agent told me very simply to take it or leave it and that payments will be late and that I should not depend on the money being paid to me.

Unfortunately the whole idea of going to CSA is because lone mums require that payment to make ends meet and I cannot understand why the service has deteriorated on badly. I’ve been with CSA for years and I’ve never had a problem however recently I’ve had to call and chase them each month for payment although payment have been received by them.

When I asked to lodge a complaint I was told very clearly that nothing will be done. Is CSA working and is it doing it’s job?

How can I set up fair payments while self-employed?

January 23, 2015

I’m really hoping you could offer me some advice, my ex partner left me a couple of years ago along with taking my 1 year old son.

She broke a £60 a week agreement we had in order to get more money from me through the childmaintaince , to cut a long story short they calculated I had to pay £100 per week.

I eventually got into a lot a debt lost my home because I couldn’t afford the mortgage i have just started to get my life in order and recently have gone self employed as a scaffolder.

Can you advise me on the best way to keep earnings and what the childmaintaince can use as income to re calculate my maintaince payments, for example should I set up as a limited company and pay myself a wage through the business?

I just want to be able to support my new family and also be able to pay a fair amount like £50 a week for my son I am no longer aloud to see.

Many thanks.

What will happen with CSA if my ex is not letting me see my child?

January 23, 2015

I have paperwork from the Family Court stating I have my 2 Children 2 times a week. and Pay the CSA,and have done so for 2 years.

Now My Ex Wife is not sending my Daughter to me ? Do I need to go to court to say the Agreement has been broken and will the CSA TAKE MORE MONEY OFF ME when they do there calculations for the Yearly Calculations as My ex wife could say Im not having my Daughter 104 days or more as i am meant to do and want to do but am being Stopped ??


Should I pay CSA if my child is claiming benefits?

January 22, 2015

Wonder if anyone can help me, so much misinformation about. If my son is going to college 15hours weekly, but also claiming benefits in his own right and child benefit is no longer in payment should I pay maintenance?

My son is 19 and financially independent due to out of work benefits. The csa are telling me that child benefit is not required as long as my son attends college and is under twenty.

Anyone help?

How can it be right that I have to pay this much CSA?

January 22, 2015

I am divorced have three kids two to my ex wife one with my ex girlfriend I am in a driving job that pays minimum wage.

I lost previous job then got another one straight away I’m a worker don’t like to b out of work anyway this other job was zero hours so I couldn’t afford Csa and the rest you know.

They caught up with me and now I’m paying arrears I pay nearly four hundred a month I hate to say this but I would b better off on the social I can’t afford to live I had to get overdraft out so I can pay the Csa.

So far in arrears I’ve paid nearly four thousand pound since June this can’t b right I wish somebody could help me I’m at the end of a rope going into depression thank you.

Why can’t I be assessed through the newer system?

January 22, 2015

I have been paying through the CSA for eighteen yeras. My one remaining dependant child is 15 ad I’m just being re-assessed.

I am assessed under the old 1993 system and asked to be assessed under the 2003 system only to be told that this wasn’t possible.

Could you please tell me why this is?
