I am determined not to pay a penny to the CSA

September 8, 2010

My X wife and I came to an agreement on child support ourselfs from 2002 to 2008 which I payed monthly to her bank account. In December 2007 I received an e-mail from her saying that Martin her boyfriend had threw them out off house and they where all homeless and could I give her a lump sum of child support so they could rent, and payment should be till they all reached 16 years off age which worked out at £20,000. I did agree and pay the money. On July 2009 I got a phone call from my partner saying the CSA are going to arrest your wages if I did not reply to the letter sent which I recived a week later ha ha. Anyway at that time I worked in Africa and phoned them to find out what the score was, it turned out that my X had put a claim into the CSA. When on the phone I did say about the £20,000 I payed till the kids where all 16 years off age and then if they are still in full time education I would pay again the person I spoke to said sorry that was a gift and this is a new claim so please accept, we have contacted your employer who has gave us you salary details and we will be in touch.

Been to my lawyer says could not do anything for me and I had to pay him £200 plus.

Determined not to pay a penny to the CSA till my kids reached there 16th birthdays, CSA informed me that they would get my Passport cancelled which made me even more angry. Bottom line  forced into paying £85 per week to the CSA this went onto May 2010 and was unemployed so phoned CSA to let them know my circumstances have changed the person said ok we will put this in your notes.

Mid June 2010 I started a new job and again phoned the CSA to say things have changed again, the person I spoke with said no problem just send us your first pay slip and we will reaccess your payment. July 2010 got a call from CSA asking why I am not paying CSA I did say have you checked the notes before phoning me, not at all. Mid July 2010 phoned CSA that I am unemployed and on Incapacity Benefit.

August 23rd received a call from CSA asking for more wage slips I asked the person have you checked the notes? I lost it I would not like to repeat what I said. Bottom line my X is useing the system for more money and CSA are going for the easy targets Fathers Which Pay and just want to get on.

P.S do not get me wrong I ant running away from the CSA like some fathers and why cannot they take the £20,000 into account I have already paid.

    It is not within the remit of the CSA to make any allowance for a lump sum child maintenance payment that was paid before they became involved.

    It is the mother that is abusing the system and making you pay twice.

    Good God, what a spectacular example of not only another money grabbing mother ex from hell but a stupendous cock-up by the marvellous, on-the-ball, fair and just CSA. Jaw dropping.

    So what would be the problem with your ex just paying you the money back?

    Nothing new with the CSA unfortunately! Isn't it funny that the PWC can turn on/off the CSA but the NRP can only switch it on! The government giving the PWC the power to abuse the NRP…well I've had my trouble with them already and I'll make sure that my circumstances mean my interaction with them is minimal!

    I agree with the above- they can only look at payments made on or after the day they become involved- obviously in your situation this isnt fair but on the flip side its the same reason they dont come to you for back payments-
    there is a possibilty it could be looked at as a variation- ask about this

    In my opinion, the CSA should never have gone near NRPs who have a private agreement with the PWC. The PWC shouldn't have been able to make a claim if they were already receiving maintenance..That way, the CSA could have gone after the REAL 'deadbeats'..then we would have seen what sort of success rate they had!

    The £20,000 should now be considered a loan to be reclaimed in a small claims dispute, seek legal advise in regards to this. Do the CSA have authority in that country outside of the UK? I would question this also.

    I have noticedthat the CSA never refer to the notes unless you instruct them to, they have a record of abismal lack of initiative other than to constantly harrass and threaten compliant NRP's, Why is it the CSA are not so enthusiastic as to harrass and threaten uncompliant NRP's?

    CSA have authority to assess you if you have financial connections to the UK eg a bank account. It's costing me £3000 in arrears because it took them 6 months to make that decision. No right of appeal.

    Why do the Csa have notes they, they choose only to use selective bits of information in an attempt to bully and blackmail. Little tip always record the conversations, after all they do. Then play it back to them, they dont like it.

    Hi everyone, Had a letter dated 10/2/12 with a sum of 4597.00 arrears to be owed, contacted the CSA and spoke to someone who wanted the money now and as i told him there is no way i could afford that much he then replied, as anyone in your family with a credit card who can pay for you. At this point i laughed and asked if they have sent my Data Protection File yet as i asked in 2010, the matter was left in someone would phone back.

    On 10/3/12 i receive a letter saying i owe 14258.36 in less then 3 weeks its gone up by 10000.00, what a joke. i phoned the CSA to explain the letter and why, The robot on the other end said and i qoute “i dont know but if thats what it says it must be right”

    i then asked for the complaints proccedure, he then said “i wouldnt bother complaining as it would be a waste of my time” and would not tell me.

    the matter is still ongoing, these people are jokers it seems there is only one side of the party who can play the system and us NPR have got no hope.

    CSA complaints free phone number 08007838527 You may have been phoning and complaining to the CSA for a long time getting nowhere use this guide and you will see how quickly they respond. Please do excuse if I repeat the steps I have done this for a good reason. 1.Complain and Appeal and get your MP involved EMAIL the complaint and appeal copy everyone in.
    2.Order your Data Prints by post and email.
    3.Email all and sundry use the email list and email them every couple of days to remind them.
    4.Not happy with data prints items missing Complain to ICO be sure to copy everyone in. [email protected]
    This is what you do immediately if you believe the CSA are taking too much from you! ■First thing you must do is make an official Complaint and Appeal *EMAIL THE COMPLAINT*and contact your MP and get them involved regarding your issues you are having with the CSA. Mention that you believe that they have made an Official Error. Ask the CSA for the decision to be set aside as they are not leaving you enough to live on and is going to cause you an injustice. This is based upon Regulation 55 of the Child Support Act (Maintenance Assessment Procedure) 1992 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1992/1813/made
    Attach a copy of ALL your outgoings, even the things the CSA don’t allow for. Email a copy to your MP and all of the others in the email list further below it should get passed straight to the chief executive’s office. It is very much more than likely that they will then find errors in your assessment going back several years and use that as an excuse to drop the payments. You can find who your MP is via here http://www.writetothem.com As you will be emailing many politicians, ministers, ICE, ombudsman, complaints team etc all at the same time as per the email list below your emails will more than likely be forwarded to your MP in anyway. or use their [email protected] for example [email protected] [email protected] or simply just Google your MP if you know who they are and you will find their email address on their website. This is the email distribution list you are going to use for your Official Complaint and Appeal. Your MP [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] englandhelp[email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] BCC this email address: [email protected]
    Use this guide if your still having problems, they are a bunch of f****n idiots that have no idea about real life
