I have a Tribunal hearing looming - no date yet but my awful ex is appealing against his CSA assessment which was made following my application for a variation to the maintenance level he was paying.
If the tribunal accepts that the CSA assessed him incorrectly then can the Tribunal reassess the appropriate level of maintenance to be paid there and then or does it refer it back to the CSA for reassessment??
Can't offer you anything advise wise Zookeeper, but please do keep in touch re how it all goes. I'm in the process of being about to send in an application to review the NRP's maintenance & would welcome any advice on it! Best of luck with it all.
Zookeeper are you aware the CSA is changing to CMEC go onto the nacsa website and see if this helps you. My ex holds back his commission for 3 months then on the 4th he gets a very healthy pay the CSA then calculates off his 3 bad months!!!!! the CMEC won't allow this they take the gross pay from DWP so no more hiding it comes into place late next year! good luck
sand12 the current system gives you something to use here - just apply for a reassessment when his bonus kicks in. The CSA can look at any period of pay they deem to be appropriate for any case - and if an annual bonus is received they should take 12 months of figures.
The change in 2012 to gross income won't male any difference to that.
CSA refuse to look at any more of his pay slips I then had to appeal the appeal looked at it CSA had made errors plus they found his commission but 3 months later ex contacted CSA change of circumstances and he has kept his commission back again for 3 months! back to square 1 my ex is costing the tax payers a fortune!
