    Has anyone ever appealed against CSA's calculation and been successful?

    They've made a big mess up calculating payments even though all the proof is there - not sure if its worth appealing though as its like what they say, goes!

    Its the new system... We've already appealed by phone, but they've sent a new letter & the calculations are worse.

    The person in question is not working, lost his job in May, claimed JSA from June but CSA have stated the person worked up until end of August?, CSA have stated they have to pay £11 p/w from May - end Aug, the £5 p/w from end Aug til Sept. P45 is there to prove person was not working from May... Also JSA would not pay if they were still working? But they refuse to accept this?

    i would reply in writing again showing all confirmation of the above and send by recorded mail, they dont know there **** from their elbow

    the csa are a bunch of idiots, my sisters been dealing with them for years and they are so useless, her ex owes £1000s in csa and they give him chance after chance after chance when he doesnt pay up, he was going to court then as he paid on the last day of the time limit they let him off again, but then he doesnt pay again so basically he will never pay off his arrears as it keeps going up and up as he never pays each week. its more like father support agency than child support agency.

    i am in exactly the same position...my ex did the same....they eventually arrested his wages at source...and guess what....the office FORGOT to deduct it from his wages...no penalties for that tho, and by the next month he had left the job...went on and on like this. He too is owe me thousands and thousands. CSA are only useful if the father wants to pay for his children

    something similar happened with my sisters case, because of one minor detail that was wrong, something to do with the exs work they had to start from scratch, my sister was so close to giving up with it all but she doesnt want to give her ex the satisfaction. her ex partner now has to pay bailiffs who pass the money onto the csa who then give it to my sister. i wish they would lock him up for a month and show him they mean business lol

    TBH...................you'll have more luck finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.


    The CSA are ****.

    You should take sassie's advice.

    She is an elite expert.

    appeals for csa

    dwp appeals

    They do get looked at.

    You send a letter of complaint recorded, they have to respond to them. Every DWP department has a complaints section who deal with all complaints, I cannot remember the exact ins and outs but I know they have a set timescale which they have to adhere to, (rough memory seems to recall 30 days for some kind of contact, even if it is just an acknowledgement).

    I would strongly suggest however that you see your local MP at there next closest 'surgery'. Or possibly send an email to their office. If you google them you will find contact details. If they are willing to listen to your case, they may pursue it on your behalf. An Mp's inquiry is treated very seriously by DWP, and they kinda of jump the queue to be dealt with.

    Don't just give up with the CSA, they need a foot up the proverbial anyway.

    p.s. I used to work for DWP so not just telling you any old nonsense

    gosh some people p*** me off !

    never give up fo your ight to get whats due to your children, i fought the old system for over 10years calling sometimes on a monthly basis, then when the new lot took over suddenly my voice was heard and he owes thousands which will eventually (hopefully) get paid back he was getting off with £20 a month for two children which should have been £400. Im now going for a departure against inconsistent lifestyle which is a little harder to prove but im doing for my kids and this keeps me driven.
    keep all calls noted with names, write letters often to keep your point coming forward if you sit back they will let you.
    good luck. x

    I have witnessed 3 different families go through hell with the CSA -

    They make the rules up, they demand stupid amounts of money from some people and give amounts of money to mothers who DO NOT DESERVE IT because they spend diddly squat on the kids.

    hmm. im a father. Twice the csa have told me i need pay nothing. just as well, it costs me a small fortune just to be able to see my son, even though it was it his mothers choice to put me in the situation where we split.
    i know how i feel about these kind of situations, thankfully, my case was assessed by someone with common sense.

    Top of my class at uni thanks.

    IMO opinion my responsibility ends when she ignores my suggestion of an abortion. Not that it matters anyway since i always use protection, last week i went home with a trainee nurse, got what id went to hers for and left before she asked me for my number, that is double protection.

    Would you suggest sending originals of the backup information or copies? I'm worried about the CSA losing my documents, then I'll have to go out and acquire all proofs again :-(

    God no don't send your originals. You need to get some verified copies (signed and verified by CAB, someone from local council, at your local job centre etc).

    as already said only send copies and send recorded so you know they have received them, also as silky has said if things are wrong and you arent getting anywhere then go to the complaints, once they have things then things tend to move pretty quickly

    must be tough with just 28.00 to live on, have you considered going self employed so you have more control and csa cannot easily affect you?
