Somehow, I thought that would be the answer! Makes me so angry that there are dads like this about. Dh has always paid his x every penny he's been asked to (and more) and by direct debit. He must have had 5 letters in the last 6 months telling him they've decided he should pay by x method and enclosing paying in slips. Why on earth they waste time chasing someone who is paying and not those who don't beats me.
Thats because harrassing dads who do pay is easier than trying to find the ones that dont and it makes them look like they are doing something when really all they are doing is creating stress for all the parents who ar trying to do their best for their kids. Obviously sending letters to paying dads is not going to casuse them near as much hassle as trying to deal with someone who is defaulting on their payments cos then they might have to do some thinking heaven fobid and actually start filling things properly etc. gggggggggrrrrrrrrrr I HATE THE CSA.
according to the CSA I can't take him to small claims court. It has to go through them. I've tried to enlist the help of a solicitor and nobody will help me because, guess what, yep you got it... it has to be done through the CSA. I can't afford a solicitor anyway but that is beside the point, nobody, will/can help me!
It's like banging my head against a brick wall.
All I want is £60 to buy dd some new shoes (2 pairs, 1 sandle and 1 a proper shoe). £60 in 3 years when he sees her every weekend, why is that too much to ask?
my dd dad owes £8000 to csa and refuses to pay, he sees her when he wants mostly but a month ago i went back to work and he said when i got a job he would pay it but now he refuses, he is such a waste of space, he buys stuff for her to wear at his house but takes it off her at the door and takes it home, she is in bad need of clothes and it has been left to me to pay and my new dp, which really pees me off cos he makes out he pays for her to everyone we know
