Trying to get money from my ex through the CSA

May 9, 2010

I have been a single parent and in contanst contact with the csa to try and get them to make my ex partner pay maintenance for the past 9 years. I have had 6 payments in this time totalling to £15.52 the last giro i got from them was for 52p which is a joke my ex partner has almost £10,000 in arrears which the csa have failed to make him pay anything towards.

I have made numerous complaints online in writting and over the phone, I have even involved my local MSP and written the the Independent case Examiner and again nothing has been done to get my ex to make regular payments for the upkeep of our son. I constantly give the information about him working and by the time the csa get incontact with him he has moved onto another job or they dont hear from him within the timescale so what do they do they send him a warning letter which again is attached to a timescale for him to contact them.

This organisation is a complete joke and they don’t care about the parent with care i feel like they take the side of the non resident parent and let them off for not to take financal responsibilty for their child something needs to be done.

    Hi Alison Kay,

    With the onset of CMEC the agency have acquired more powers for those that are non compliant.

    Have they at any point obtained a Liability Order for the debt?

    I totally agree with you “This organisation is a complete joke and they don’t care” ~ about anybody !
