How can I get CSA over with?

January 26, 2015

Can the PWC accept a lump sum in Full and Final satisfaction of arrears and reinstate them in the future?

How can you protect yourself from this happening?

Is it enough to pay the lump sum to their account and get them to sign an agreement which will be sent to csa.

    If the CSA are chasing you for arrears the safest way is to pay through them so the PWC can not say they have not been paid in the future.

    This was posted in 2012 since then this has been sorted and it is possible to make an offer on arrears in full and final satisfaction. There are specific forms of declarations to be signed by the parent with care stating they are writing off all arrears, only then was a payment paid to the parent with care. For others this may not be possible , therefore if you do all of the payments through Csa it cannot come back to haunt you. Even secretary of state arrears can have an offer made and accepted as this case there were arrears owed to both secretary of state and parent with care. In such a case you may make an offer as a whole and let csa deal with parent with care.

    Sorry it as posted in 2013 not sure why it’s up again ! If you refer to making “part payment in full and final satisfaction, section 32 & 33 of child maintenance and other payments act 2012”. And make your reasonable offer. Really hope this helps someone

    This was posted in 2012 as a question but has been sorted since. It is possible to offer part payment in full and final satisfaction in accordance with ‘section 32 & 33 of child maintenance and other payments act 2012’
    This is possible with both secretary of state and Parent with care arrears.
    Declarations and forms need signing and completing by PWC stating they are writing off all arrears that cannot be reinstated, a 30 day cooling off period is given to PWC. Only then was the lump sum paid to PWC via BAC with a reference of child maintenance arrears and formal receipts signed.
    If you have no trust at all , make the offer to CSA direct and they will deal with PWC and split the part payment accordingly between SOS and PWC. A private family agreement is now in place and all is sorted. I hope this helps someone who felt as desperate as this situation was.
