to close CSA case?

Because they don't seem to have the first clue of what they're meant to do?

DS was born in the March of 08 and I went to the CSA in the October. Since then he has had three payments of £5 because my ex signed on. He change jobs frequently and is very open about why he does it. When they get too near to pinning him down for payments, he leaves work. He works in an industry where he has plenty of friends, some of who again openly admit they have not sent relevant information to the CSA as "it will get him in shit". I have told the CSA where he's worked for the past three jobs. He's been in his current place since September and they're still waiting for paperwork (wage slips etc) from them. He earns a lot more than i do and pays no rent/council tax/utilities and yet the people who are meant to be the ones pinning him down either just can't be arsed or have no idea how! I asked after 4 years to have it transferred to the legal enforcement team but they feel the need to give him more chances. Now there's talk of them "charging for the service" what fucking service?!
AIBU just to shut the case and forget about it?

Thanks. I'm counting on ex running out of jobs to leave too.

The differculties are is the court order for the money from the house is already in place.

But the money he owes is considered to be owed to the csa as opposed to her so she can't just go get a ccj.

Its beyond a joke, he's always been employed but a job hopper and since the dc was 1 when he left nothing has been paid but she still has to pay him 60k he owes her about 20k.

I'm desperately trying to get her some help but nobody knows what to do, she thinks its only right that she should pay I'm but she should be able to deduct the sum he owes her from what she has to hand over.

The csa are just a middle man so how can it be that he owes them not her and his child. How ridiculous!! I hope she can get round it somehow sad what would happened if she just sent 40k and kept the 20? Or am I just being really daft hmm grin

Its because the CSA is responsible for both deciding the amount and enforcing payment so you can't enforce it yourself.

Doing that is also my idea but as soon as she sells it he will get informed and I expect he will go racing to court to enforce his order

He sounds like a lovely guy hmm what an absolute prick! This whole things just seriously makes me fucking furious. Every single person that enables the csa and government/law to carrying on screwing over good people, be it RPs or NRPs, can go fuck spiders. Cunts the lot of 'em angry

Spoke to CSA yesterday (THEY actually called me again! Its like a parallel universe!). Again just to say that they had spoken to exp and his employers and issued a warning to send in the wage slips and whatever else info they need. She expects them to arrive either yesterday (she left early) or Monday. Interestingly she told me that if they do not arrive she can take the details from him over the phone as "things have changed and we really need to move forward on this" not sure what's going on in the department but something is giving them a kick up the arse!
