My daughter turned 19 and my payments went down just £1 a week – why?

April 28, 2013

I have always paid my csa every week since 2002 in 2010 i was reassed my payment went up to £83 a week, with £2000 arears because thay taken so long to sort it out.

When my daughter turnd 19 my payments went down a pound a week how can this be? i have asked the csa about this all thay say is i am on the old system i have asked to go on the new system but thay say thay carnt do it i asked my mp to look in to this she told me to write to some one at the csa but someone always phones me with the same advice all the csa want is your money they dont care or understand i hope it happens to them one day

    Im on the old CSA1 system myself. I understand the only way to move off it, is if the PWC closes the case for a certain time and then reopens the case. Perhaps someone else on here can advise further.
    I don’t know if your aware but in December the CSA raised the child maintenance age to 20 years. They haven’t even had the decency to notify NRP’s. Still being a NRP and a PAYE worker, Im just a cash machine for them who they can walk all over.
    Good luck with your case.

    I moved from old to new system and payments would be adjusted from £98 a week to £57 but this change would phase slowly over 6 years. Was also told that have been moved onto new system as PWC has had a new baby and applied again to CSA so both parties have to be on same system.

    A case to move from CS1 to CS2 if either the original case is closed and a period of 13 weeks elapses before the PWC opens a new case, or a new case is opened by a new PWC, the CS1 case will then be migrated over to CS2.

    You are very fast a spouting many rules and regulations its a pity only 98% of the imbeciles on the 0845 numbers don’t know them ,not trained correctly or just don’t want to follow them ,it’s only when you get your MP or a second phase complain involved its like a different ” JUNTA ” that at least use the correct proceeder !
