    • Tim was supposed to deliver the car last night so we waited..   Then out of the blue he txt last night to say he could not come because he was suffering a anxiety attack so in his words he chose to deposit 4K into our account as a gesture to show he was honest and not trying to tip us off   he told my son earlier in the week that he may deposit a sum to our account with the above reason but would require it back when our car was delivered..   In his message last night he said he would deliver the car this morning but again it has not come..   he has acknowledged we have paid in full for the car, he has never denied this..so if we never get our car then what happens if it therefore goes on to get sold to someone else?    The legal owner is the person who has paid for it so would he be committing a offence if he sells it on again?? it was still on the 3 sites for sale until yesterday evening and now it’s gone from the sites so where it is now is a mystery..   We keep offering to get it but he says we cannot..   this is getting complicated, blimey..

    • Please will you monitor this thread – probably tomorrow for a fuller reply – but for the moment, I think it would be useful to understand a little bit more about the relationship between you and your brother. Forgive me for asking personal details – but what are your ages – who is older. I'd like to know if you get on well, how long you have lived at separate addresses – and if push came to shove, would it cause you any difficulty to take a legal action against him or even to inform the police about his activities? I'm not suggesting that you would do this at the moment but I suppose it could be a possibility but right now I'd like to know whether the idea of it stresses you or causes you any difficulties. Would you describe your brother as a dominant figure in your life?   Also, I see that in the FOS report, you are described as "Mrs B". Does this mean that you are in a partnership. Are you part of a family anyway? I understand that these questions are very personal and you may not want to disclose the answers on the open forum or at all. However I think they might be relevant and if you are happy about disclosing them on the open forum then if you feel comfortable about disclosing them to me in confidence, you could email me on our admin email address with your responses. I'm not trying to take this discussion of the forum. It's important that it is discuss it openly but there are confidential details which wouldn't be particularly relevant which might be very helpful to you if you disclose them to me. I'm afraid to say that by large I think that a different approach needs to be used with this problem – but some answers to the questions I have asked above would clarify a few things before I come back and make some suggestions
    • I've remove the images you posted. My site team asked you in an earlier thread to present a documents in PDF format. I'm afraid that's the way we need it. Single file multipage PDF. We can help you recover £300. Your starting point is to read around the stories on this sub- forum – which will mainly be about Hermes. I asked you to do that yesterday – and you need to do it. This is very serious. It will properly take you at least 2 to 3 days to read around and thoroughly understand the principles. Then come back here and we will advise you as to your next steps. How advice will make much more sense to you and you will feel much more confident once you have tried to understand the principles involved for yourself. Generally speaking we would ask you to implement the advice we give which includes files in PDF format and reading around. We take this all very seriously

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I can see a similar question on here but don't want to gatecrash the askers thread & my circs are slightly different maybe. I'm sure I have asked on here before, but no joy.

Son is in 2nd & final year of 6th form, he will be 18 in March next year, & leaves 6th form in May.

He's hoping to do an apprentiship, with an IT firm from May, 100 pounds per week.

I currently work 30+ hours a week self employed, & claim working tax credits, housing benefit etc.

Have 2 teens, daughter is 16 in January & at school another 2 years.

When will CSA payments stop? Relations with the kids dad is cool, but he literally is counting down the days to when his CSA goes down lol (he pays 240 per month for them both which comes straight out his wages on a DOE as he was bad at paying when I was on IS yrs back & I didn't receive it anyway)

Thanks x

No neither was my ex mine went from 231 to 175 so not too bad although i still had to support my daughter through the final months at college so why do they not have to ????

 

Baffles me, do they suddenly not need to eat anymore at a certain age? Not sure about that! lol

If the ex didn't live so far away I would let my son move in with him, that would please him, not!

Um, my ex doesn't pay for school trips, trainers etc, so I don't have it both ways, what's your point? Not seeing a relevance to my question up there in your post? ^

So once they turn 18 (even if they're not earning) they shouldn't be able to eat anymore?

Whats PWC ans since when do you stop being a parent once your child reaches 18 my ex pays £175 a month football and school dinners cost more thsn half of that school trip £375 never mind clothes food home etc meanwhile he pays less.because his new wife has a child yet her ex pays for him how does this work then he has a new car holidays etc i would sooner go without though to be honest because when i decided to be a parent i realised you have to be selfless to give your children the best you possibly can shame some parents dont feel the same!!!!

How dare you 'you girls' i am a mature lady with a responsible job and usual mortgage etc trying to bring my children up right in fact my eldest has just started uni !!!! All i can say is you must of had a real bad experience with 'a girl' get over it !!!

No, don't apologise, it still doesn't make any sense. I don't get why I 'can't have it both ways' what have I suggested having both ways?

I'm wondering when CSA stops. And mentioned the fact that if the 18 yr old takes a training job, they get 100 a week, which in my sons case a fair bit will go on train fares. Just curious to know why the PWC suddenly ends up with the full cost for supporting the 18 yr old through training. Food electric water rent (it's not only me needing use of all those supplies)

I don't come on this section much but I get the feeling it has a fair few disgruntled dads that would rather the CSA didn't exist, so they could just shirk their responsibilities without someone saying no way pal?lol

....Seeing as we're obviously ok to jump to conclusions on my thread.

Wow,,I bet all the MEN that are bringing up their children themselves are right pleased with you.......ANYONE male or female who shirks their resposibilty as a parent doesn't deserve sympathy....and if it wasn't for the 'shirkers' there would be no need for CSA!!

Well said lillibelle when 2 people have a child together both should be equally responsible. I have always done my utmost to provide for my children why should the absent parent be allowed to do as they please they should be pleased their children have such caring mothers/fathers. I sense in the future lots of lonely people who realise far too late what damage they have done. Anyway must go to work son needs new shoes feeding school trip a taxi service etc etc hope all you caring parents have a nice day

lol taxi service, yes. I literally only run a car for the school trips, son is hearing impaired & the school he needs to be at is 5 miles away, & 2 bus trips there & back sometimes twice a day (as his hours in 6th form are all over the place) would probably be more than the petrol. And I also have a daughter there too doing regular hours, petrol bill is at least 120 a month. Maintenance I get is 240, I don't begrudge the ex that, I have never thought his live in partner that works full time too should have to pay towards his children, & apparently they don't these days.

But to be accused of wanting it both ways is bang out of order.I literally just wondered what age it stops in relation to what they end up doing.

Maybe i'll ring CSA lol

My ex played the game too,,paid me £20 a week,,(kid ate that much in a day!!)..I worked my backside off to make sure my son had everything I could give him,,now at 24,he doesn't bother much with his Dad,he has seen through him with no help from me..and thats his Dads loss,,cos my son is a lovely lad,works hard,nice g/f..because I laid down and paid up!!

 

Any parent who puts a bit of money above being a good person deserves to be dumped when the child grows up!!

Definitely. There are also the men that do pay for them but don't have anything to do with them, my brothers dad always paid maintenance, no problem, yet saw him once a year if he was lucky. Brother tried having a relationship once he was an adult, but it didn't work out & he doesn't see him at all now.

I get on fine with my twos dad, he comes here every other weekend to see them 7 we get on fine. I wouldn't like to rubbish him at all, but they did have to take it out his wages in the end, I even let him off 500 pounds a couple of years ago, I had to give CSA permission to not take that off him, which apparently CSA say I can ask him for at any point, but have I? No.

So I don't think I am being unreasonable. I'm just worrying what's gonna happen when son leaves 6th form, & if he does manage to get this apprenticeship, because I still need to run a car for my daughter to get to school, yet my income is going to go down 400 pounds a month what with working tax credits going down, housing benefit, child benefit, maintenance etc. But son will still need to be fed? lol

Exactly !! I'm sure his Dad would want him to get on with life,,he just needs to see reason,,your son still needs feeding,supporting and why should all of you struggle? Hopefully he will see your point of view,,(just massage his ego when the subject comes up by making him think it's his idea not to reduce payments) lol Good luck x

CSA is paid to the maximum age of 19 depending on the childs circumstances. You can still claim for a child when the child is in non advanced education but once a child goes to advanced education csa will stop. Csa will also stop if the child leaves education and doesn't do anything or starts working. However a child can work part-time or throught the summer holidays and csa can still be claimed.

 

Non advanced courses is like you school and nvq, svq etc and advanced is hnd, diplomas etc
