CSA just demanded almost 4 grand from me!

August 29, 2015

I’ve just received an arrears order from csa for nearly £4,000.These arrears were run up due to there inability to process changes in my circumstances. The first was a change in employment the second when I remarried.

The first I can accept but the second I can not .They maintained that my new wife’s earnings would not be taken into account in assessing my payments.As I’ve always been up front with them all information they required was given. My payment rose by £140 .When asked why they said it was due to household diposable income.

But they told me her wages weren’t to be taken into account. When asked about this they still maintained that her wages weren’t used in the assessment Read more

Why isn’t my husband in prison?

August 27, 2015

My husband walk out on me and his 2 children 15years ago, he left me in a lot of debt. I found out where he was and informed the csa but all they did was send letters to the address he was at, in return he wrote on the letters not at this address. nothing else was done he has not paid anything in 15years.

Why are the men who don’t want too pay left alone and the ones that do stung for everything? why has my husband not been put in prison like the csa state?

I get paid from Saudi Arabia – can the CSA touch me?

August 26, 2015


After years of hassle with the CSA and my ex wife who denied me access to my kids for many years, the boot is on the other foot (I think)

At end of April 2015, I received a job offer from a Saudi based company so I’m over there working. I’m not paying maintenance at mo and have heard that CSA can’t touch my money as there is no agreement with Saudi.

I’m paid monthly from Saudi into my UK account and have a flat in UK. I don’t plan to spend much time in the UK for the next 2 years.

Does anyone have a view on whether the CSA can touch me?


Is it worth approaching CSA again?

August 25, 2015

when I split up from my eldest sons dad 6 yrs ago I had to go on income support(for 3 months) I was told that I would not be allowed it unless I gave them details for the C.S.A about my ex which I did.I received a letter nearly a year later from the C.S.A to say I would not be allowed any money from the Ex as he earnt less than £5 a week. I phoned & was told they had done all their cheecks I did say how would he pay rent, food & ciggarettes on that but was told it was right. For the last 6yrs I have some maintence when he has felt like he is in a good job. Im not sure ewether it is worth going back to the C.S.A as I don’t know what they will say this time. my son is only 8.

CSA are the most dishonest organisation around!

August 22, 2015

I have paid through the CSA for my daughter for around 8 years without even a missed payment. The case was closed down ealrier this year as my daughter got herself a job. They refunded me £140 2 weeks after the case officially closed.

Now I find that they are chasing for arrears of over £300. I do not believe their numbers so I asked for a history of my payments and also the 7 refunds they have made to me (funny giving me refunds when I’m supposed to be in arrears!). They have been unable to provide this despite numerous requests and are now threatening an Attachment to Earnings Order for the +£300.

A guy from the CSA phoned my company and told them I had refused to speak to them, this is a blatant lie, I have spoken with about 4 different people over the past few months, non of which have been able to help.

The CSA have proved to be unprofessional, unhelpful, and, worst of all, fall way short of honest. They should be ashamed but hey, what can you do??!!

Can child maintenance disclose my confidential details?

August 21, 2015

My daughter has lived with me the past 7 yrs and when sure turned 18 she decided to re build her relationship with her mother who had left her at the age of 11. When she moved to her mothers I cancelled the CSA payments and thought that was that! How wrong I was …….

Her mother has decided to make a claim against me to the Child Maint Svc (CMS) and is trying to fleece me even though she never paid anything for 2+ years.

I received a letter from my ex wife last week which was vile and contained many of the usual threats she likes to make. However the main point was that she knew how much I earn’t last year.

I have spoken with CMS today and they confirmed that they have indeed provided my annual earnings to my ex wife which they got from the HMRC. The CMS stated today that they had the right to disclose my private and confidential earnings under the new legislation of the CMS. I am horrified by this as the CSA couldn’t disclose my ex wife’s earnings at all and I knew she “fudged” her annual earnings and she didn’t declare her 2nd job and what was annoying was that the CSA didn’t care about any of this.

On speaking with HMRC this evening they were rather surprised that the CMS had disclosed my earnings and they agreed that my details are confidential.

Has anyone else had this issue or even aware of the CMS disclosing annual earnings. I am investigating the matter of data protection as I have never been asked or advised that my earnings would be disclosed by the CMS and I do not see how they can do this without someone’s consent?

Any help and advise would be extremely useful …..

Is it not a crime to withold information from the CSA?

August 20, 2015

My ex telling the CSA I havent paid for 4 years, I now owe £4500, I have paid this money directly to her. After 4 years constant payments to the CSA 2004-2008. Now I face wage arrestment, and the funny thing is, I have had one letter regarding this, which I phoned to ask for. I can prove most payments as through my bank, but some, a small amount can only be traced through her account, my sons name was the reference. She can prove these, yet doesnt have to, is it not a criminal offence to withold info from the CSA is it not?? this is only a brief discription of the problem. I will add, I live 200 odd miles from my son, yet make every attempt to spend time with him, weekends, school holidays.
