High income father pays peanuts for his children

September 14, 2010

I have just been notified that as my Ex-Husband has challenged his weekly amounts as I asked for a reassesment he has now been ‘asked’ to pay £70.00 per week. I have received nothing since March 2010 and prior to that 12 months at £60.00 per week for a total of 13 months. For 10 years I have been fighting with the CSA to be told today that as my Ex-Husband is paying a private pension of £500.00 PER WEEK this has to be disregarded.

When I divorced him in 2000 I walked away with nothing as I didnt want to fight through the courts and he ‘promised’ to maintain our children. This is from a fully qualifed Actuary earning a six figure sum and who is not fit to call himself a Father.

The system is a bloody disgrace.

    Which system are you on, how many children and what overnight care does he do?

  • Mandy Jayne Mannion says:

    I have no idea what ‘system’ it is?
    We (or rather I) am responsible for 2 children, eldest is now over 18 so not eligible, and neither have any overnight staying contact with him, ever.
    I divorced him in 2000 and it is only since September 2008 that the CSA have enforced any (sporadic) payments.
    Neither child has stayed with him since 2007.

    As they both now realise what a complete Tosser he is, that is good enough for me.

    Sounds like somebody is only interested in MONEY MONEY MONEY

  • Juliet-Amber Jolliffe says:

    I'm sure that pension thing isn't right – I know they are allowed a percentage, but not all of it. You can also challenge the 'lifestyle' he leads to prove he could afford to pay more.

  • Mandy says:

    Big Lou…….absolutely not!!!

    He is welcome to his money, it is obviously more important to him than gaining the respect of our 2 children whom he has ‘abandoned’.

    I am happy to say that our children have been well provided for and am proud to say that I have done it alone.

    The shame is all his!!!

    So jog on with your silly, immature comments.
