Ex is self employed, works 2 jobs
Planning summer hol abroad with DD this summer
Just had letter from CSA saying payments are £0 because he’s on state benefits

This is either
A) clearly untrue and he’s lying to the CSA about receiving benefits
B) true and he’s committing benefit fraud

If I call the CSA can I find out benefit he’s supposedly claiming?

What benefits render your payments to zero?

He’s remarried, has also a younger child and both ex and wife self employed and earning.

Has anyone else’s ex filled this type of fast one?

If he receives benefits and has the child 1 night a week or more then payments will be 0.

I don't know if data protection will allow then to tell you details of what he is claiming.

It is probable he will put all business income in his wife's name. I would do what I could to challenge it and also report him for possible benefit fraud but sadly there are loads of ways to play the system.

They won't tell you anything about what he is claiming.

My ex put everything into his wife's name.

I'd give them the heads up, at the cms.

Report him to HMRC for tax fraud. They have more teeth than the CM agency. Give them full details of his self employment, whatever information you know.
