My case against the Child Support Agency

February 21, 2012

In brief, I am labelled a sensitive case. My issues are huge and complex, the latest is that despite the fact that we have notified the agency of a whole host of change in circumstances, due to divorces, sale of overseas properties etc of which the aency has failed to action by way of supersession. The word supersession is the legal term they give to an amendment. Because of their failings the arrears has continued to rise as per their original calculations (when I was asset based, as opposed to earnings based).

Through all of this I have continued to pay them the sum of £383.00 for the last child still under their juristiction in the system. As you can imagine this is far less than they were receiving when I was asset based. The arrears has amounted to the sum of £17k on 1 and £11k on another. total £28k. Most recent events was a tribunal held in Nov 2011, by where the tribunal pointed out to the agency that they have failed to make any amendments over the past 6-7 years now.

There argument is that they have responded, but the tribunal does not have juristiction over them and they can continue to ignore our supersessions. Well, this week, despite the fact that we are awaiting the amendment which they do admit to, only going back to Oct 2010 we have received a letter of demand from the bailiffs, giving us 1 week to pay one of them £17k, no doubt the other one of £11k is still waiting in the wings. We have tried to argue that they cannot enforce this upon us this is still in dispute.

But according to Richard Alexander at the CSA they can do what they like. I have paid out to my solicitor £12k for work to put our case accross to them and it has not got me anywhere.

I have received calls to my business address, leavaing messages with my receptionist that they are bailiffs and coming into collect. I am now looking to complain but where do I begin. Its seems the agency are a law unto themselves, and very powerful. I have until Monday to pay?

    I suggest you got to deadbeatdads they’ve got some very useful tips when you pay membership for forums. Something along the lines of having a judgement passed by your peers as is your legal right aka a jury

    ~ Were these requested at the time the changes took place OR sometime afterwards?

    Unfortunately, if you have huge and complex issues and you are in the hands of the CSA/CMEC, then things are about to get ten times worse, because they will well and truly f–k your case up!

    Go to your M.P. or a solicitor.

    Paying money and working your balls off GETS YOU KNOW SO WHY BOTHER.

    Its a joke to think if you abide by the rules you’ll get some fair treatment! It doesn’t exist, the CSA are not here to negotiate -“legal terrorists”.

    SO EVERYONE PLEASE STOP wasting your money on lawyers and trying to pay the CSA. Best just move away.

    Reading what has happened to many on here makes the whole idea of trying to “sort it out” is worthless. Why trast your life because of this corrupt – disgusting system. YOUR MP voted for it! make them bloody sort it out.

    Dont bother, go on the sick and pay £5 p week, the csa is the most disgusting system in Britain , it has made my partner ill, the way they treat him is a joke, they have no compassion they dont care about the life you are leading, only about collecting the money, we have been to the MP and they arent that much help.
    Only if the women that raised the case closes it then you can make progress.
    And to all u women out there that get pregnant on purpose to men that dont want your babies then chase them for money you are all vile too, some thing need doing about it, and fast.
