I have had to put my children first due to heartless CSA

February 16, 2015

I am a mum to three boys now aged 25 22 and 16 i separated from their dad when my youngest son was 2 and have always worked part time boosting my income with tax credits.

I have never recieved any financial help from their dad even though i have filled in numerous forms sent to me from csa they have never followed them up.

My partner has three children from a previous relationship who he pays for £75 a week leaving him witgh under £200 a week to live on this does not even cover rent and council tax. his oldest child lives with her fiance and worrking full time taking home more money than him yet he still pays money to his ex for her through csa they even made him pay for her other child[not his]for a while he also buys clothes etc for them.

While i agree he should pay for his children i can not keep allowing myself and my children to live in poverty whie his ex and children are taking food out of our mouths and have made a heartbreaking decision to end the relationship i have to put my own children 1st because the csa dont seem to want to help them.

    Dont do it. this is exactky what the ex wanted. why should she win by being a shit. it sends out the wrong message and you hve an absolute rught to be happy.

    so fake a split let her think that she has won

    I sounds like the amount is so high due to arrears. write to the CSA and explain in full detail income and out goings and request that the amount is causing hardship. if possible high light the the effect on the child in question. mention s2 of thye CSA act 1991.

    the CSA are legally obliged to consider the welfare of the child if they have discretion. they have discretion when it come s to repaying arrears.

    this should mean that he pays less but over a longer period

Got something to say?
