Ex is threatening to go to CSA unless I pay more

August 16, 2015

Been paying my kids mother into her bank for roughly 7 years now, she recently wanted more money and threatened with the Csa so agreed to give her more now she is threatening again Is this rite once she’s agreed already with me? I think she gets a good amount.

The problem is when you deal with the Csa they don’t take into consideration I have a mortgage and bills to pay so if she does go ahead I’m going to be in real trouble plus how do I treat my kids for birthdays and holidays the fact is I wouldn’t be able to, the system is awful and really needs looking at? Plus with new system they go off your p60 so at the end of a year I might have had a really good financial year meaning they take more money off me the following year but that following year I might have a bad financial year but will still be paying the amount I earned from the year before so how can I be expected to pay money I wouldn’t have?

    I hope you’ve received receipts for everything you’ve paid to your ex otherwise you will get well and truly shafted. I’ve literally worked for 30% of my wages! My MP sorted it in the end. Good luck!

    I thought they only get involved now if your not paying her. Don’t think they will open up a new case if you are already paying. I might be wrong though. I hope for your sake I’m right. good luck either way

    She be put on CM not CSA they look at what you payed and hoe you have payed and tell her if she wants to use then she has to pay ! . You cab look online to see how much they say you should be paying . Somtime its less then What you do pay , if that so I would tell her to go for it and the laugh when she find out its less . CM go on PA anyway so long you have proof they should be to much trouble .

    If she opens a new case she will have to pay to use their service, they will take into account what you pay and try and work a way forward amicably….this new system is meant to be set up to stop situations like yours. If it helps you can phone maintenance direct to discuss your case and get some advice to arm yourself with then call her bluff! Best of luck.

Got something to say?
