Surely the father can’t claim if his son doesn’t live with him?

February 23, 2014

After a family break down between me and my son he is now living with friends. He is nearly 17, I have just received a letter frm csa to say my son’s dad is taking me for csa even tho he never paid a penny for him for the 16 yrs I look after my son and he never saw him either!

My son does not live with his dad surely although it is morally wrong on my ex’s part it’s also wrong for him to claim without my son living there?? I am willing to pay my son direct, I have still supported him even tho he no longer lives with me. I took him to the social n they said he can claim his own money but he won’t, he’s in college 3 days a wk please help!x
