My child’s mother is demanding more money, should I go through CSA?

May 27, 2016

I recently moved home from Dublin where I have a 19 month old little girl. I have been paying her mother 75 euros a week for as long as I can remember. I was out of work for the last 3 months and haven’t been able to pay. My childs mother now says that I owe her for the weeks that I missed? she says that I need to pay her 800 euros. I need to arrange payment again but this time through CSA.

I don’t think I should be paying this amount for CSA

May 26, 2016

I have just recieved about five letters stating that I owe about 38 pound per week for csa for 1 child. I have my daughter sleeping between 52-104 nights per week and live with my second wife who has 3 kids aged 16/17 and 18. My annual wage is 14040 and weekly wage gross is 270 per week, what should I be paying as I think this is wrong?

Ex wants extra maintenance from me despite benefits haul

May 25, 2016

My ex partner wants £175 a month out of me for the kids and he says to me   wants it for bills & food as well, and has my name is no longer on the tenancy agreement is this right or not, has long as I keep providing for my kids, I don’t see this has a problem, my ex partner gets the child tax credit and benefit, and income support which surely should go towards the food and the household bills hope to hear from you regarding this situation.

CSA are blatantly ignoring our human rights!

May 24, 2016

Where do I start?! From the get go the CSA have been nothing but problematic for me and the tale is too long and makes my blood boil too much for me to want to recant. All I will say is that they have ruined my life, I get less to live on week to week then they actually take from me. I have asked several times why my legal rights to shelter, heating, food, clean drinking water and family are being ignored and dissolved all in the name of paying child maintenance. Surely our human rights are being ignored by this disgusting excuse for a government agency who will bleed the NRP dry with no second thought to their rights or needs.

How many need to take their own lives before they realise something needs to change. Thanks to the CSA I have no relationship with my children as I simply cannot afford it because of the amount they take from me, I’m barely surviving! Not a day goes by where I don’t consider taking drastic action just so I won’t have to feel the way I do anymore. Criminals, illegal immigrants and terrorists all have more rights and get more from the government than I do! Surely out there somewhere is someone who can change this medieval system?! Isn’t there??

I can’t afford to live thanks to the CSA

May 23, 2016

I’m left with just £170 a week after CSA payments , I was expected to pay for accommodation , pay bills and run a car to get to work ( 10 miles away and no public transport ) . I told them I couldn’t afford to live , and got told to eat less hahaha . I’ve lost my house now and live in my car , so can not now have my kids stay over . Anyway to the point , if I pay £50 into a pension would my wage be £120 . Or stay at the protected amount of £150?

Ex and CSA are both out to get me!

May 20, 2016

I have brought up both my kids on my own and got into dept whilst doing so as their dad gave us meagre financial support £94 a month for both children. My son at 16 decided to live with his dad immediately he got the csa on my back and I was told I’d have to pay £140 a month. I tried to reason with his dad and the visa I bring home £1150 a month and after I pay my mortgage,bills and debts I’m working for nothing. I know my son is at college but he is also working and earning more than an apprenticeship pays. The csa are not interested in this fact. My son is now 17 csa have put an attachment to my earnings of £300 a month im worried I’m going to loose my home. I feel the visa are just on a big witch hunt against me.

I already pay maintenance and have my daughter, should I be paying more?

May 19, 2016

My ex is asking for me to pay for my daughter to go to nursery more cause her new boyfriend has moved in with her so she has to work more hours. .. I currently already give her maintenance money every month for my daughter along with having her 2/3 nights a week…. do I have to give her more money for the nursery payments or not?

Does it really cost this much to raise one child?

May 18, 2016

Child maintenance service took my case after the csa I got a re assessment of £560.68 This is £98.00 a week and after I was told to stop paying as they were doing an assessment This payment is for one child I agree I need to pay something but I can’t afford to pay this amount for one child Does it cost this amount to bring up one child if this amount is half?

Will CSA take into consideration me staying at child’s house instead of other way around?

May 17, 2016

When calculating how much money per week I owe the mother of my child for child support, it asks ‘how many days a week does the Child stay at your house?’ because me and the mother are a couple but not married I stay over at her house a few days a week to help out instead of the child coming to my house. Does the CSA take this into consideration when asking about how many days a week the child stays at mine.

Can CSA force payments even though I have a shared residency order

May 16, 2016

I’m not so sure what the CSA now has on me. Just last week, I obtained an order to have shared residency of our daughter.

I’m still paying the mother 200 per month, it’s a family based arrangement, the current file at the CSA is in the process of closing.

Inevitably, the mother will get a bee in her bonnet about something and go off to the CSA again…as we now share residency, would the CSA try to force payments from me? Surely, I could open a case and ask money from the mother if this was the case? What happens in these cases?
