How can the CSA get away with this?

May 16, 2011

Right, before i start i am the PWC, i’m the mother and i agree with the majority of the men on here, the CSA is shockingly bad, if anyone knows what i should do in my situation please let me know.

June 2008 i filed a case with the CSA as my ex had left me and refused to pay for our then 4 month old daughter, well now, in may 2011 he is still refusing to pay and the CSA are doing naff all to get anything out of him, everytime they go for enforcement he changes his circumstances, that takes 12 weeks, during which time they cant enforce the enforcement, marvelous, anyways, ive now instructed a solicitor to act on my behalf to try and sort this out, this has cost me £££££££££’s as i’m not entitled to legal aid, and the CSA will not give my solicitor the information she needs unless i pay for it, yes you read that right, i have to pay for information that the CSA hold about me and my case, yeah alright, on the otherside of it, he gets legal aid because he hasnt declared he’s working, so his solicitor is FREE, cash in hand £550 a week, bragging to me about it, and not paying me a penny, happy to sit back and let my partner support his child, Pathetic, as for the CSA, what the hell is the point in them? I’d get more out of hjim with a shotgun and a knuckle duster!!!

**Disclaimer, I will not actually cause anyone any harm, i just like to think i wopuld if i had the bottle.

    my case with csa has been ongoing for nearly 10 years now, my sons father if you want to call IT that gets a job then when csa contact him he gives up his job and goes on benefits then gets a job and then goes on benefits and so on for 10 years, never had a penny from him for my son, the ammount i have paid in phone calls over these years is ridiculous. why can’t we as mothers have the right if we are not happy with this shabby system and scrap the csa for something more stronger and reliable and get what our children deserve. the ammount of money that is put into this sham of a csa could probably sort this country out of the debt we are in because lets face it they aren’t doin very much are they. no wonder everyone wants to live in england they give you benefits left right and centre.

    My view?
    Disband the CSA.
    PWCs in your situation where the NRP is elusive should go to a solicitors with experience in these cases who use private investigators to obtain information.
    The NRP is then presented with a payment schedule and the PWC’s legal bill.
    No payment?
    Then a visit to the court.
    Still not payment then it’s a term inside.
    The solicitors work on a no win no fee basis.
    Why should I as a taxpayer support other people’s children?

    Hi, cant disband it until there is something in place to take its place.

    Also please join fb groups child support agency failings and other too for advice and support.

    My case was 12 yrs but closed now and my ex got away with fraud, discrption, perjury, etc and I got 9 special payments and 2 advanced payments to stop my story being filmed for Watchdog few years ago.

    My case might be closed but I want to change the legislation.

    Good Luck, unfortunately you are not alone.
