Help with CSA arrears

May 18, 2010

My partner has recently found out that he owes £6500, (only through us phoning them all the time) he is not received any notice of this, but has been told it was from April 2004 to December 2005 but he was only working till July 2004, they were notified by the employer and also my husband sent them a letter (which they say they did not recieve) but they will not look at the assessment as they say he should have chased them up. Is this the case as they have hard evidence from the employer of the date he left and all his pay slips for the period he was working.

From July 2004 to December 2005 he was not working and on no form of benefits (just supported by family).

Kind Regards

    I think realistically csa know that a grown man would not be supported by family alone for that length of time, just be honest they are more receptive then!

    For your info Amanda Dickinson, by family is meaning myself working while he was looking after our young children and looking for new employment, so honest I have been and receptive, believe me they are not!

    dont listen to that balony rebecca i would assume that miss dickinson does’nt have a clue what she’s talking about and that the csa dont do things like that .Well ballocks iv been screwd by them good and proper and thet have always denied there mistakes , over a 15 year period i have lost contact with a son of whom has changed his name and wont speak to me a daughter how is almost at the same piont as him , and a younger son and daughter of whom think almost the same as they do , AND WHY , because the csa take money dont pay the corect amount out to mum which leaves her thinking you arnt paying the right amount just for them to tel you years down the line oooo sorry we were taking some for areas but of coarse dont think to send you any paper work for the figures or persentages or that you agree and can even affored to do it and then tell you that you ow the childrens mother areas then so that destroys the bridges that you started to build yet again , they want 40%of earnings from me 20 for 2 children and 20 for arrears , ARREARS being 18500 of money that mum received over years in cash and cheques of which she denied because she was claiming benefits instead of getting a job , for her to go on and claim that that money was money I,I,I, owed her mother and HER new boy friend , why i would borow money from these people i do not no ,any way for the csa to believe the lies and leave me with a huge dept BUT OF COARSE IM THE ONT THE GOES OUT TO WORK SO THEY HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING THERE MONEY BACK FROM ME THAN MUM HOW DOES:NT WORK BUT LIVES IN A NICE HOUSE PAYED FOR BY DADDY . SOI AMANDA dont talk out of your arse re csa are corrupt and dont give a shit this is the government dont for get and arnt they just so trust worthy

    CSA make mistakes & take it out on the parents. I have provided them with spreadsheets with all payments – yet they still manage to calculate arrears incorrectly. I knew absent parent was lying about amount he should be paying but as he’d spoken to CSA & they werent bothered about chasing him to make payments I accepted what I could until they managed to do their job – some 2 years later(17 years in total) im still fighting with them – it almost impossible to be polite to them as they speak the S*** that you know is wrong. I have already managed to go thought the ICE twice with compensation for maladministation – I know their system better than them most of the time yet its months between payments – I only ever said I wanted enough to make sure my daughters life style wasnt affected by their dad walking out on them. I like to keep the money in their account for the things they need – yet the CSA cant even get this right – changing the account the money is paid into whenever it suits them.
    My advise get your MP involved – take your case the to ICE or parlimentary Ombudsman – highlite exactly how crap they are & how much pain their causing families.

    To Amanda Dickinson,

    You obviously have no experience of the CSA to make that kind of a comment!!

    They are biggest bunch of Legalised Criminals if ever there was one!!

    They lie, cheat, extort, defraud and cause more stress & pain to families than anything ever in history!!

    The CSA needs to be shut down now, and payments etc reverted back to the Courts!

    i have been slapped with an arears bill of £10,000. admitidly i did miss payments when i was self employed as i had no work at all and just feeding myself was a huge task. in hindsight i should have signed on the dole but as a self employed person i was entitled to nothing but at least i woul have had the csa payment defered. I now work full time in an employed position and the csa have approached my empoyer and found out all of my details about wages etc. I have no problem with paying at all its just they have hit me with paying £121 a week, this includes the arrears. This causes me to now not be able to afford to pay my rent on time and im always short as i do have other bills i have to pay, food, utilities etc, unfortunately they dont take any of that in to account so its my kids who will eventually suffer and it will eventually put me out on the streets so i dont understand how this is pro children. As with the other posts, its true, they have no interest in you or how it affects you. My ex wife refused to work for nearly 20 years as she said i should be responsible for paying for her too. She got the house and everything in it yet she has never been forced to look for work the whole system is totally unfair. if you have a partner, they take into account what they bring in, but if she has one , he could be a millionaire and they dont take that into account. this is criminal and needs to be stopped
