My name is [removed - dx], I am 26 years old., From Bedfordshire.
I have 4 kids (please don't judge) with 3 mother's, 2 of whom we are good,
my youngest child's mother always causes issues
if I give her money like the other 2, she is not grateful and wants more, which is unfair to the other mother's,
she went to CSA and claimed I never got involved with my child and also went to my work place and put in a complaint, claiming I was breaching data protection
a case was brought up but I was okay as she kept changing stories.
But it got to me mentally and I eventually quit my job,
I took a few weeks out of work and worked in a new place
now CSA sent me a letter saying they'll take 50 pound each week from my new wages which was less than I was giving her,
then I received a new letter stating they was going to take 120£ a week.
At the time I was living in a shared house and could barely afford to pay rent with this new job,
let alone pay for my other kids,
I ended up working overtime everyweek and loosing out on sleep,
so I could hardly see my children,
this started to affect my health, my life and was making me really weak, I wasn't eating.
I rang them and pleaded with them,
supporting my case with what I could and saying I couldn't afford what you was taking,
but they had made it so it came straight out of my wages,
I couldn't pay a single penny to my rent,
I couldn't afford food,
or even to pay for my other children,
I eventually became homeless and turned to alcohol (iknow that isn't great, please don't judge) with no home,
I lost my job (which was night shift) I had nowhere to go.
I've had various mental health assessments also.
Until I met a very old primary school friend and he took me into his home up north in Lancashire,
he housed me for a bit while I started work, and got myself a place..
things was going okay, my mental state really improved.
Until I received another letter this morning, stating they will be taking even more money.
Is there anything I can do, I'm sure it is illegal to make someone feel so low and homeless.
If anyone can help that would be much appreciated, even if it's something small....
I just don't know what to do.
