Do I still have to pay maintenance for child who is emigrating?

May 12, 2016

My ex girlfriend is marrying and moving to Canada. This means I will not see my little girl again. She has not asked me if I agree to this nor would I. Am I still liable to pay child maintenance for a child I will in all probability never see again or write to or contact in any way because I will not be given any details of her location. Any advice would help.

Biased CSA should take financial circumstances into account

May 11, 2016

I pay The Child Support Agency Maintenance for my children through the CSA. I am not one to complain although I feel now that the CSA have gone to far with a recent assessment.  I feel perplexed and anxious as I can not find a way to voice my opinion to someone who will listen and help me with my plight. The CSA state that if support is required to contact the CAB. The CAB have been advised by the CSA they are powerless to do anything.

From the beginning the CSA took 6 months to assess my case, I was unemployed by the time they got in touch with ,a demand letter for maintenance totaling £900 rather than a payment mandate.

In 2013 whilst earnings were low for me and my estranged wife we were deemed to be below the breadline and awarded tax credits. Whilst I was being assessed for the change in circumstances by the CSA I did not make regular maintenance payments. They assessed I should of still been paying maintenance at the same rate as before by this time I had accumulated a £2000 debt. My maintenance rose from £160 to £240 because of the accumulated debt . I rang the CSA and spoke with an adviser (dependent on what question  you ask to weather they are an adviser or a caseworker) to sort out a manageable payment amount which was agreed and by the end of the week, Aimee the CSA Accountant rang me and  demanded I pay £300 or she would put a detachment from earnings order in place.

An alleged case worker put a detachment from eaarnings order in place during a festive holiday because of a late payment of maintenance. If he had of been a case worker he would of seen from my file that I pay early every month.

Yet again during a time of financial difficulty my estranged wife had not been in work long when she fell critically ill and we were dependent on my wage and her statutory sick pay the CSA would not lower the maintenance payments.

I am being assessed on my wage including overtime where as before I was assessed on my basic wage. The Chief Executive on a BCC program stated he expected the parent paying maintenance should work overtime to cover payments. Now though i will be working overtime and the payments will become infinitive. The more I earn to try and pay the maintenance the more they are going to take. My monthly expenditure including maintenance is £1183.59 (Household Bills & Groceries, Student Loan (9% of access over £21,000 annual salary) Children (Transport & Clothing), Dentist (Regular Check-ups), Opticians (Check-ups & Glasses) Prescription (Ailments) Work wear (Not provided  Temp Worker), Barbers, Internet and Mobile  (When I Can Afford) Pension and Work Transport. My income is £1382.33 (overtime permitting) a month and basic pay without £1061.67.  I would move to a cheaper property if I could afford to do so. My estranged wife left me and i did not have the finances  to move on to somewhere cheaper. My maintenance payments are £287.75 a month)

I understand and am proud to support my children financially I work the overtime to live. A fairer assessment would be on surplus expenditure rather than 20% of earnings after stamp and tax. I can not help my financial situation this assessment will leave me homeless and probably without work as I need to get assessed on a basic week’s pay to getting maintenance reduced. My job requires me to work overtime. I am also not entitled to benefits on a basic wage. The children’s mother uses the CSA as a tool  to  undermine me to gain full access to the children the CSA then put the maintenance up to compensate for a fall in shared access without an appeal procedure and on the word of my ex wife. The CSA are biased in their approach.

CSA are making me wait to receive payments

May 10, 2016

the Csa take deduction of earnings from my ex. They reviewed the case in February and a new schedule was sent out to advise I would receive payment on 27th April. My last payment was 3rd March. When I rang asking where the payment is I was told that the employer has until the 19th of MAY to send in payment. I asked why no payment is being made in April and I was told because my ex partner might have been off work.

My ex and I have a good relationship and I have seen his wage slips. Why are they making me wait 2 months without any payment?? What can I do??

I’m prosecuting CSA for their negligence!

May 9, 2016

I’m currently taking the CSA to tribunal, but, so far, the hearings with the judge and a “representative” of the CSA are treating me as a criminal. I have overpaid £3,500 and want my money back. They claim I’m £7,000 in arrears. I’ve shown evidence of earnings and shown their mis-calculations.

I will now take this to my MP, The House of Lords and the media.

I want the CSA prosecuting for Gross Criminal Negligence.

I want to collate a dossier of similar cases to present my case.

Could you provide me with as many cases as possible to back up my case for prosecution?

I want these people to pay for their crimes.

Ex won’t pay maintenance because he thinks I get too much money!

May 8, 2016

I am on separation with my husband for nearly 6years. All what he contribute is paying mortgage only which is  £485. He doesn’t pay any bills or support the our children in anyway.

He was offered to pay me  £38 a week for child maintenance and landscaping refused. He thinks that I am getting a lot of money from child and working tax credits.

I work three nights a week and from the working agreement we agreed to is that he sleeps at the house looking after the children. The reason why he moved out was because he was abusing me because of money.

Should I be paying CSA for my 20 year old daughter just because she’s in education?

May 7, 2016

I have paid CSA to my twin daughters for 17 year and then one of them started work when she was 17 so it stopped for her then my other daughter left college last September so hers stopped too I have had a phone call in April to say she has decided to go back to college this year and they want £330 a month for her She is 20 in October …I didn’t mind paying to my children but this surely isn’t right !!!

CSA keep sending me incorrect breakdowns of payments

May 6, 2016

CSA have sent me a breakdown from early 2009 and every time I tell them it’s wrong they send me another break down of arrears and all they have done is put the amounts in different months.. Even when I was out of work they put me down as owing £34 a week.

There a complete joke.

My case proves CSA act unlawfully

May 5, 2016

Those who have had dealings with CMEC – formerly the CSA, will know that they do as they please and routinely act outside the law. My case proves it and is unique because I saw it through to the bitter end – PHSO upheld my complaint. Others are less fortunate.

My case needs to be profiled and retrospective justice sought for those Non Resident Parents who have taken their lives or who are paying far more than they should, has to be sought.

I hope you will support my parliamentary petition and pass it to people who will want to address the dangers and injustices of a gov’t dep’t that acts outside the law

“What action should be taken when CMEC knowingly act unlawfully?”

I’ve made a petition – will you sign it?

My petition:

What action should be taken when CMEC knowingly act unlawfully?

CMEC applied a variation they knew to be unlawful. They used their full legal capability to enforce the variation and misled the courts. CMEC failed to disclose to ICE and the PHSO who investigated the complaint. PHSO have upheld complaint – Evidence supports complaint is not unique CMEC applied 4 court hearings, a tribunal, have served an arrestment order, considered repossessing my home and instigated debt enforcement. I’ve incurred £40k legal costs. CMEC offered £500 in compensation. I have been driven to despair. Very similar cases have ended in suicide. CMEC routinely act unlawfully and the level of redress is pitiful. Should a gov’t dep’t be allowed to routinely operate outside the law?

What are my chances of getting my overpayments back?

May 4, 2016

You really have to laugh, otherwise you’d go mad.

For all my recent problems with the CSA.  Nothing prepared me for when I received my SAR from the CSA.

In January this year, they finally closed down a case that I started (I stupidly believed that it was the done thing to go to the CSA to work out a fair payment for my daughter)

Anyway, I wrote to them in July 2015 to close down the case and finally they did in January 2016.  They closed down the case and in the notes they wrote that I had made 1,800GBP in overpayments.  They clearly had no intention of informing me about this.  In Feb 2016, my ex opened another case because she’s a cunt.  No mention of the overpayments, nothing – just a miscalculated figure that I was somehow in arrears…

I’d like to get this 1,800 back what are my chances – anyone know?  somewhere between slim and not at all?
