I need some advice asap i am currently in CSA arrears of over £600 maybe more as i have stoped paying it the reason for this is because they wanted £300 per month for the amount each week and arrears, i work full time and get a wage of £900 a month! £385 of this is my rent £125 is attachment to earnings from CT arrears and i have to live on the rest food and bills (which i was unable to pay paying CSA) i have a pregnant wife who can't work and she gets no help from benifits because of my wage.

 

We have been to CAB and they can't do anything just told us we have to pay even they know the hell the CSA put people through, i've tried talking to the CSA but they wont help they are not bothered about the parent who has to pay.

 

I am not refusing to pay CSA its just i can not afford the £300 they want i refuse to put my unborn baby in a life time of debt and Poverty because of it!!

 

If anyone can help that would be great

Thanks

Have you stopped paying the CSA full stop or are you still making your weekly payments minus the arrears?

Well I would at the very least put the weekly amount in a seperate account because at the moment your arrears amount will just be going up and up.

 

Is your £900 per month wage before or after tax. Seems quite low income to me so if thats the only wage coming in I would look to see if you can claim any benefits

Can't even do that, as the money i have left when i have paid all my bills is £80.00 and that £80.00 is spent on food we have to make it last a whole month.

 

Yeah £900 is after tax, i've tried to see if i can claim tax credits but was told by them my wage is to high to get any help.

 

Its all just one big mess!! like you said the arrears are going up and up i just can't find a way out.

when the CSA calculates the amount you can afford living expenses are not factored in it. Unfortunately they will come after you, however when your wife gives birth that will be taken into account and should reduce your payments
