Payments made direct to ex are being ignored by CSA

January 27, 2012

HELP!!!! My husband and his ex wife split up 8 years ago. They both had an agreement about how much money he should pay for their child. After only 2 payments (given in cash) the ex tried to double the amount and use it to stop contact if not paid. My husband contacted the CSA to get a proper assesment. The CSA madethe assesment (less than what had been agreed) and left it up to my husband to pay into the ex’s account on a weekly basis.

This went on for 18 months till the ex told the CSA that as a serving soldier my husband might be posted to another country so could all payment be made through them. This is what happened. In march 2009 the CSA started taking more money and informed my husband that his ex had informed them that no payments had been recieved in 2006 / 2007.

My husband has provided bank statments to the CSA 3 times to prove payments were made but as the ex is now saying the payments were volentery it looks like we wont get the money back (£4500, so far) we are also still paying overpayments.

What can we do???

    EVERYONE GET YOUR MP involved!! NO matter what.
    Regardless send them a copy of every letter you send to the CSA.

    Don’t let the MP do nothing! Stand up and get the MP over worked with local CSA cases guaranteed to piss them off and force the issues directly with higher CSA bods.

    Please pass this message on.
    CSA will only take notice if an MP gets pissed off
