liability order

December 12, 2009

my husband received a letter from the csa at the end of october saying he owed £8,000 for 2 children from a previous relationship, they gave him 7 days to pay or they were going to court.

Well we couldnt pay the outstanding amount off but we did offer to pay £100 per month, (my husband lost his job in nov last year and we have a dmp put in place as we have found ourselves in so much debt and unable to pay our bills), we cant afford to pay anymore than the £100 per month, anyway, the liability order was granted even though we have been paying by direct debit and now they are saying we have to pay £350 per month or they will send the bailiffs in.

I’m worried sick what will happen, we also have 3 children under 4, including a baby, we have gone to the cab but they havent really helped us we just dont know what to do next.

    Hi mrs m,

    Is your OH satisfied that the arrears on the liability order are correct?

    The agency will in some cases take parallel enforcement action.

    There’s a section regarding Bailiffs, which you may find helpful at and a forum where may gain more help regarding your case.
