Ex gets away without paying CSA because of a loophole in the system

November 19, 2015

My ex paid csa whilst he was employed, he took his redundancy and moved to Cornwall. He has started his own business, but does not declare tax, I can prove this as he advertises on Yellow Pages and whenever my child visits he is at work.  However we get no help as CSA say untill he declares tax they cannot help..  It seems there is a big loophole in the system and those that don;t want to pay get away with it.  I do now get £5 a week as I advised the CSA that if he was on the dole he would pay, so thats what I get now. Its so unfair, we are struggling whilst he lives the life of riley.
