can you help please


  • Dave says:

    In the eyes of the CSA, buying clothes for your son and paying for his after school club is not construed as child maintenance. Unless you can afford this, then please stop and go by the calculations the CSA give you…pay no more! By all means buy things for your son when you’re with him and if you can, make sure you keep these at your place. You MUST NOT give mum ANY CASH for child maintenance…it must be by BANK TRANSFER and correctly referenced.

    Standing order payments only as direct debit to her account is not classes as a payment
