Only ever received £5.00 weekly for the last 6 years approx in child support. I gave up a long time ago an couldn''t really be bothered to dispute or argue the case.
The recently I received a letter from the csa stating I would receive now £27. per calender month.
I called them and asked why etc, apparently he has been self employed since April 2011 and it ha s taken the csa agency this long to put a schedule in place. They then explained that in May 2012 they will ask the Inland revenue for an income based disclosure, as they need to wait for the self assessments to be looked at. I thought ok this makes sense.
payments were suppose to commence early April and still nothing.
Upon speaking to them today they haven''t even collected the payment and now they tell me that there policy is this.
" we don not as an agency pursue Inland Revenue Income Disclosure on any more than one occasion, once we have done it once regardless of how long they have been self employed for we do not obtain this information again"
I was dumb founded - so does that mean people can earn a huge amount over time but no assessment can be pursued?? surely this cannot be right?
I have never asked for anything and nor has he provided anything for our Daughter not even a xmas present etc.
I am now appealing although the csa said there decision would remain.
Surely they are allowed to obtain info from the Inland revenue yearly.
Please can some one help, we are already in court tomorrow, I did try to see if I can get the court involved but a legal rep said I could not do that? why is that?
What exactly can I do then?? I am at a loss ans sick of everything. very very down at mo.. sorry for moaning peeps
