Might be a good idea to urgently go to either cab or welfare rights as welfare rights can ring them on her behalf with her permission. I would have thought that as long as mum can prove the kids are in her care full time that child benefit have a responsibility to at least freeze the account till can process the money to her, especially as you explain he is spending it and she needs it.


Nag them politely and if possible record the calls showing your effort to sort it and what they say incase you can claim any of the money back later. I could understand if dad had care of them at least for half of the week that they would need to lias with dad also, but he shockingly is taking advantage.


I am sure those more in the know will post later but doesnt harm to get onto cab or welfare rights asap xx


If hes not helping her has she also considered the csa, now the rules have changed if on benefits she is allowed to keep the whole ammount awarded on top of any benefits she may be getting. That would make him realise he has to help her if he wont even give her the child allowance. If he is on the birth certificate they will have a good chance of getting some money and even if not in employment she would get 5.00 a week out of his benefits. If in employment he would have to pay i believe 15% of his wages for one child and 20% for two children etc.... She wouldnt have to beg him for milk then due to him being so selfish and he might learn to grow up.xx


I remember begging my ex to give me money for a pack of nappies whilst he swanned off with a new partner and left us at home with no money, I had to go up the city centre, visit a nice new mother and baby toilet room that gave free nappies and discretely take enough for one day for fear of a beating when I insisted he stop spending it on dating another yet we starved. I had to buy the baby food from the local one jar at a time, I was so desperate I did it at the same time of day like a routine and eventually they stopped putting more than one out at a time, I felt terrible doing it but was desperate, its not nice struggling for such essentials, I hope she gets the advice she needs. With the help of social service I learnt he was a violent dead beat and learnt there was help out there.


Things are better now, hope soon for your daughter xx
