This week is a tough one until payday, normally I pull it together somehow, I have been ill for a few weeks and on ssp so it won,t be alot of wages coming in. I,m struggling and thought sod it I,m going to just for bloody once ask my dc father to contribute to pack lunches for the week. The normal stuff that would cost about six seven quid that I just don,t have this week. So I wrote it out on a list and ask him if ok to get it and I said thankyou. DC comes back from contact without the pack lunch saying that the list was screwed up, thrown on the floor and told to give it back to your mum..... FFS WTF is the problem with helping your own child out so he can eat at lunch time..... Urghhhhhhhhh
Have posted on another thread about him not paying child support. So the least he could do was provide for packed lunch as have not ever asked him to do so before. To screw the list up infront of dc was out of order
We don,t qualifiy for free school meals as getting working tax credit which has been cut at the moment. Hence the reason I find myself a bit low on money. why is it that for him its acceptable to opt out of feeding his child. csa been on his tail for years but apparently he thinks he is the exception in having to pay his way........And wants me to lie to them that he has been paying all these years
Yeah i dont think you need me to tell you that he is a loser.Your DC has got a good mother,kids dont forget these things and hes just shown your child that he doesnt look after him/her.i love these guys who want to be the childs pal but dont behave like a parent.why should he not pay csa?its not for you its for his flesh and blood,id want my child to know that i supported them.some blokes are too stupid to work out that its their responsibilty too.
my dc at 11 said looks like my dad doesn,t care about me, how sad is that. A grown man who shows his own child how nasty he is and making dc insecure.. I would never lie to the csa for him and maybe thats just what his problem is, but there is no need for him to take it out on dc
Could you let the school know that you're struggling and see if the DC could have school meals for a week or two? I know the last school I worked at used to do it for parents. Good luck, your ex sounds like a twat.
Just tell the school that the your tax credits have been stopped and ask them to asses for free school meal? Also contact the CSA and say that you are struggling as you have no contribution from your ex. Two simple phone calls tomorrow could change this situation.
That would be fraud. The op has said she gets some wtc, even if you only get 10p wtc you are prohibited from getting free school meals no matter what they rest of your income is. Even if that income is less than the upper limit fsm set.
It may be worth asking the school to help however dont lie to them. Just say that it has been a bad month and could they provide meals for a few weeks. And next month if u are able to pay the money back to the school.
