After a conversation with my ex husband he informed me that the CSA told him how much I get paid annually, and proceeded to tell me , and then told me he also had it in writing.

Can the CSA divulge my earnings to him, I thought it was confidential between myself and them have they breached Data Protection Act



Any advice would be helpful



Thank you

CSA have never told me how much my ex husband earns, I don't think they are allowed too. I would be extremely cross if in your position but wouldn't be sure on what action to take. Am sure someone will be along soon with some better advice

The CSA aren't supposed to tell, but it's easy enough to work out. You will get 15/20/25% of their net salary, less 1/7 for each overnight stay.


Depending on your current relationship with him, if you can get hold of the letter he claims he has, or even a photo/copy of it, it might be worth a complaint.

You haven't told us who is the PWC, you or your ex ? From your first post, where the CSA are writing to him with your income details, it looks like he is the PWC. Because otherwise, why have the CSA got your income details ? They don't need to know how much the PWC earns, only how much the 'paying parent' earns.


It is trivial to calculate how much the 'paying parent' earns, example:


You receive £57 per week for 2 children who stay overnight with ex for 2 days per week. Ex has 1 child dependent.


Calculation is £57 / (5/7) / 20% / 85% = £469.41


Ex earns £469.41 per week. (£469.41 less 15% disregard for 1 dependent) * 20% deduction for 2 children, less 2/7th's for 2 overnight stays per week = £57

I pay him CSA payments Im not happy they disclosed my earnings to him at all, he has no reason to know, at the end of the day they are a agency and should be trustworthy, all they need to tell him on my salary they have calculated that the payment will be XYZ

First thing... don't send in any complaints until you are 100% sure that it is the CSA that have told your ex.



!st get in touch with the CSA and tell them you have been told by your ex that they have disclosed your earnings to him.


Tell them that the ex says they have it in writing.


They will probably respond with under the data protection act they would not be permitted to do so. So, if this is what they

come back with then your next course of action is to get a copy of the letter which your ex (says) they have.


If the ex refuses then you can almost guarantee that they have made the calculation (or someone else has) and that is

how they would know. This may well be a case where the ex is saying this simply to make you look silly with the CSA and

score some points. I would retaliate with a "I have reported this to the CSA and they told you they would be looking into it".


If the ex does show you a officially headed letter with the figures on it then get a copy. That is the time to then have a go

at the CSA and tell them you are going to go through the official complaints channels to sort it out.


But please don't make yourself look silly just because your ex is having a bit of a laugh at your expense

The CSA are obliged by the legislation to advise the income used in the calculation of the NRP liability. It should show in the notification letter. This DOES NOT breach the Data Protection Act
