Ok basically my step daughter has been taken into social care which happened over a year ago, we then had her stay with us for a few weeks and now she is living with grandparents and is on income support in her own right but also at college.

We called the csa to explain that her mother is still claiming for her to which we were told not to rock the boat as we''d get accessed again ourselves and it would cause more hasse to us then to the ex I''m so fed up with it, and then today we receive a read out of the paymenets we''ve made and their it is still claiming she has 2 children living with her, makes me so mad

That sounds to me like the CSA passing the buck.

You do not have to accept their word for it. If your step daughter is in Care, then ask her social worker to provide a letter confirming this, and that she is currently living with her grandmother, and forward this to the CSA. sat out in writing that you wish them to reassess your partner''s liability and if they baulk at this, ask why they are not investigating her fraudulent claim.

Is your partner paying for a second child whio is still with the mother? If so, the CSa may need to reassess the over all liability but unless your partner''s income has changed substatioally and he has not told the CSa there is no reason why this should be a problem for him.
