Hi there, I wonder if anyone can give me some advice please?
My Ex has contacted the CSA for an Variation Application, I live with my new partner and son and my daughter went to live with her father.
I pay maintenance for her but he clearly wants more, I only earn £420 pm and with that I have to buy food, clothing and pay the mortgage on my house which my sister is staying in for a short time whilst she gets on her feet.
She pays me a small amount to help cover costs but i In no way make any profit from it.
The CSA are saying that my ex has applied for this application and that he is entitled to it, Can he do this? I literally live on the £420 pm and have had no payment for my son since last year?
I hope someone can advise me if he can do this or not.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for your reply, He''s done it because he wasn''t happy that my wage dictated that I pay just a small amount each month which is why he has made a claim on my property...not sure how I can possibly pay him as although I live with my partner i contribute to bills etc there and i pay the mortgage on my own property.
My ex hasn''t paid a penny for my son since October of last year after i contacted the CSA to tell them my daughter had gone to live with(so that he didn''t need to pay me as much money for my son) As we had a direct payment plan in order he just stopped paying, and has changed the circumstances every few months since so a new amount has not been calculated as yet.
I just don''t know what to do
Has he applied for the variation on "assets over £65K" or on the basis that you are receiving an income from your sister?
Why do you not put a claim in for your son? and insist that the CSA collect the monies on your behalf, this may balance the difference. You need to keep on top of the CSA otherwise your case will slip to the bottom of the pile.
