Should I pay CSA if my child is claiming benefits?

January 22, 2015

Wonder if anyone can help me, so much misinformation about. If my son is going to college 15hours weekly, but also claiming benefits in his own right and child benefit is no longer in payment should I pay maintenance?

My son is 19 and financially independent due to out of work benefits. The csa are telling me that child benefit is not required as long as my son attends college and is under twenty.

Anyone help?
