My wife cheated on me and now I’m paying CSA for it!

March 14, 2010

my ex wife left me for another man 14 years ago and we had a daughter who is now 18 years old i have re married i have 4 children under the age of 16.i payed maintenance to my ex wife cash every week for 14 years but since i stopped paying it when she turned 18 years old my ex has now contacted the csa which they say i have to pay £40 a week which would leave me with £12 a week after i have paid all my creditors and that doesnt include food,fuel to get to work,gas and electric.

Im at my wits end. my wife and kids are feeling it as well. it doesnt make sense, im struggling to make ends meet now.

while my ex is going on holiday 3 times a year and goes out for meals with her new husband i cant even afford to take my kids anywhere and havent done for years. i think my best option is to voluntary quit my job i dont see any other option.

i feel like i just want to kill myself but that would make my ex happy, the bitch.

    Your liability continues until the end of your daughters full time education.

    Does the CSA assessment differ substantially from what you were voluntarily paying direct?
