Ive had 2 work 6days a week 2 keep the roof over my head in the last 2 yrs both my mum and dad have passed away so iam all alone on this quest with the csa.

    My ex had hers suspended for 3 months. They over calculated, so I had a 6 month reduction. I asked if they could explain it to her cos she wouldn’t listen to me. Apparently, she went on a rant about depending on that money to pay for her car she’d just bought (bear in mind, she had no licence, not even provisional). So, the lovely lady from CSA pointed out the money was not for that, and came back to me and asked, rather than a 6 month reduction, would I like to pay nothing for 3 months?… Of course I would say yes.

    That is the one and only time CSA has done anything in my favour.

    You will still have to pay am afraid .her gettin married doesn’t make a difference as the man she has married is not responsible for yours and her children.they won’t look at his income just yours .and she can claim anything from benefits and you’d still have to pay . She could marry a millionaire and you’d still have to pay . It’s wrong really .they should look at both incomes and leave a certain amount alone to live off but that won’t happen cos csa have targets to meet and they don’t care if u have to live in a cardboard box as long as they get the money x

Got something to say?
