Should I accept a duty solicitor to fight CSA?

May 6, 2010

I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago and iam writing again because i really need some help.

I am due to appear in court on the 12/5, the csa are trying to send me to prison or take my driving license off me. (they already have a liability order that was granted)

They are saying i have willfully neglected my duties, which i have not, i have just been battling with the csa to get a proper arrangement set in place, the csa havent even noted that i have a 3 year old daughter, they are refusing to include her within the assesment???

I need to know what i should do when i appear in court next week, ive just been reading a post from another parent and you told him not to accept a duty solicitor???

I dont know what to do or say and iam worried that i will go to prison, can you help me???

Many thanks in advance
Andrew Pugh

    Yes I have heard this one as well. They say the magistrates need 3 signatures to send you to prison, 1 for the magistrate, 1 from some sort of court official and 1 from you solicitor or duty solicitor. Dont have a solicitor and refuse the duty one. Im in court for breaching a suspended commital sentence on the 17th May myself. I owe over 25k in arrears for 2 children thats never been proven are mine. They say that I have to sort out my own DNA test but they wont tell me where she lives. I would have to pay over 4k in court and solicitors costs but even then the kids and the mother could refuse it. So I was forced to pay £300 a month and was told that if i miss any payments i would go to prison. I was injured last year and havnt paid since july! So i expect to go down for 42 days. Im not really bothered now as none of the money i pay them goes to the kids anyway as she has already had the benifits and they are now 19 and 16. She wasnt that hard up as she was working and claiming at the same time but didnt tell DHSS as it was cash in hand. I cant pay anything anyway im bloody skint!!!

    Hi Andrew,

    Have you made any payments at all during the agencies involvement?

    As far as solicitors are concerned, Child Support is a specialised area and whom ever you acquire advice from, you should satisfy yourself they know what they are talking about.

    I’m paying CSA for a kid i didn’t want and therefore my Daughter is an ENTRAPMENT CASE. The CSA know this but they don’t care because to them I am the “biological Father” to a child that ought not to have been born. The Mother (lying bitch) told me she was on the “pill” and that if she ever caught pregnant she would not claim CSA. funny that she is claiming CSA and encouraging my family to make my life a living hell now. Over a period of ONE YEAR. I’ve had my emails hacked into, my Facebook account hacked int, threatened by a relative with three kitchen knives and threatened by the Step-Father too. It appears that even when a man does a DNA and pay CSA he is “expected to see his children whether he wants to ;or not and continue speaking to the Mother knowing she could blackmail him where he stated he may consider suicide caused by THEIR STRESS ON TO HIM. Where is it written in any CSA law that any parent whether Mother ;or father must see ;or speak to their kids if they don’t want to. My “Daughter” was taken out of Gloucestershire into Kemerton and the CSA know this but they also never told me that my Daughters surname had been changed from her mother’s maiden name to the Step Fathers surname so I am forced not only to see what I consider THEIR DAUGHTER but to see them AGAINST MY WILL. My family and my ex partner are talking to her giving her

MY FAMILY ARE ALSO TELLING HER ABOUT MY PRIVATE LIFE. WHERE ARE MY SO CALLED human rights TO A private life. I DO NOT WISH TO SEE MY DAUGHTER ;OR HER FAMILY. I TOO HAVE RIGHTS.

Got something to say?
