Appealing Child Support Decisions

By: Lorna Elliott LLB (hons), Barrister - Updated: 8 Sep 2018 |
 
Appeal Child Support Submission Csa

The Tribunals Service handles appeals relating to child support decisions, both those that are made by the Child Support Agency and Jobcentre Plus. The tribunal can also vary decisions made by the CSA and Jobcentre Plus. If the tribunal makes a decision that is wrong in law, this can be appealed to a child support commissioner.

Timescale for Appeals to be Made

Appeals must be made within one month of receipt of notice of the decision, which is deemed to be the date when the notice is issued. An appeal may be lodged outside the time limit (‘out of time’), but only by making a written application, which must comply with certain requirements. In these circumstances there must be compelling reasons to allow an appeal to be considered, and the later the appeal, the more compelling the reasons must be.

Evidence for the Appeal

The CSA will prepare a submission, which will vary in length depending on whether, in its view, the CSA considers the appeal to have merit or not.

When you decide to appeal a decision, you should consider whether or not you have any further evidence that you want the tribunal to consider in relation to your case. You should also give thought to whether or not you have any witnesses. If you require further information or evidence from another source, you can ask the tribunal to give a direction that the information should be released for the purposes of your appeal.

Appeals can be struck out by the tribunal’s clerk in several circumstances: if the appellant does not pursue the appeal properly; or by failing to comply with a direction given by the tribunal (if it has been specified that such failure will result in a striking out), or if the appellant doesn’t notify the tribunal that he/she requires an oral appeal hearing.

Hearing the Appeal

Either party in an appeal can apply for an oral hearing. In the alternative, the tribunal can direct that there is a need for an oral hearing. In all other cases, the appeal will be decided on the papers. Hearings are usually held in public.

The Appeal Decision

When the evidence has been heard and submissions read, the tribunal members will consider the case. The decision will usually be provided to all parties on the day of the hearing.

Appealing a Decision in Law

If the tribunal makes a decision that is wrong in law the decision can be appealed to the child support commissioner. This is not an appeal that can be made on the facts of a particular case, but must essentially be on the basis that the law relating to the decision was either misinterpreted or used incorrectly in the appeal. Either party can appeal a decision in this way.

In order to appeal a point of law you must first obtain permission from the tribunals service to do so, and within one month of the tribunal’s decision. Unlike other appeals, these cases are usually determined with written submissions only. However, some cases do have oral hearings, in which case the commissioner usually reserves the decision to a later date (i.e. does not provide a decision there and then in relation to the outcome.)

R - Your Question:
I had a csa claim made against me in 2010, which I disputed but was told I had to pay for a DNA test. Anyway, for the next 5 years payments were deducted straight from my salary until September 2015, where I was told a stop was made to the payments (not by me). Today, I have received a letter from the csa advising I owe 1,738, yet it was them that stopped the payments and sent me a letter telling me the claim had stopped? This is now causing me a lot of stress because I thought this was over a long time ago! any advice would be appreciated.

Our Response:
You would have to take this up with CMS/CSA yourself, please see the link here . It may be that CMS were taking over from CSA, so your CSA claim was stopped. However, that did not give a green light to stop paying child maintenance. The correspondence at the time would have given alternatives that you should adhere to i.e a family-based child maintenance arrangement or through CMS. It all depends upon whether you were still deemed eligible to continue paying child maintenance (i.e., until your child leaves full-time education).

This is a South Carolina case which is being dealt with by the UK court.We need to transfer it to New York for the following reasons. south carolina 0909482 YORKVILLE CAPITAL MANAGEMENT, NEW YORK LIES WITH IMPUNITY TO FAMILY COURT .I am an immigrant from Zimbabwe in the UK. I need help with a legal case based in South Carolina which has been subjected to significant perjury. The callous manipulation of truth prevents justice and has caused great suffering for an innocent little boy. Attached is US documentary proof that the court was lied to. Included is the income statement that Jenks submitted to the court. I am in a crisis situation or perhaps I would not be upturning every stone in my pursuit of justice - you are one of those stones. Please be patient and read the following forwarded emails. with thanks To Whom It May Concern0 It has become clear to me that unless you intervene neither the South Carolina nor the English court will be able to bring about a just or truthful court decision. Nicholas Jenks' details on the Yorkville Capital Management website were used to locate him in 2013. At the time New York stated that there was no one resident in New York by that name. Now there are suddenly two Nicholas Jenks - one in South Carolina and one in New York. New York referred me to Washington dc and a court case was started there. In the Washington dc court transcript (in which Mr Jenks refers the case to South Carolina) Mr Jenks states under oath that he is a freelance consultant for the World Bank (on good authority he would have been earning 500USD a day.) He also states that he has business interests in the British West Indies and in central Africa. Mr Jenks also states that he has a farm in South Carolina. However, In the subsequent South Carolina court case we hear none of this. In fact, South Carolina maintains that he is 'retired' and more recently 'on social benefits'. No explanation has ever been given for this huge financial discrepancy. It is really difficult to understand how a totally different Nicholas Jenks could have tested positive to a paternity test. It is also difficult to understand how a man with exactly the same life history as Ralph's father and whose details were used to locate him (the father) is another heretofore unheard of Nicholas The Nicholas Jenks of Yorkville Capital Management, New York. I have been told that these two Nicholas Jenks' are two different people but I have been offered no verification. Why have they not compared the social security numbers of these allegedly different Jenks identities? Why hasn't a five year tax return report been asked for? Are their middle names the same? South Carolina's counter argument is baseless and refuted both by the Washington dc court transcript and other surrounding details. I was asked to approach my 85 year old aunt (who is on oxygen) to verify my account. This is her response: To va

Surely this is classed as fraud !!!! They are asking me to the pay the outstanding amount again Help , what action can I take to stop this

Our Response:
You would have to prove you paid the money. If CMS are disputing this through their appeal/complaint process, please see the link here , then your only option would be to apply to court.

I am in my second CMS appeal, having won the first (2016/17) due to the fact the respondent didn’t comply with the judges directions by sending in the bank statements requested. He is self employed and hired an accountant to declare he was paying himself minimum wage to the CMS, in order to pay the smallest amount of child maintenance. I applied for variation based on undeclared income through dividends and business accounts etc. This time he has returned the directions asking for all business and private account statements amongst other things to the Tribunal saying “addressee gone away”. He has not gone away and I have evidence of this, but what will the judge base his adverse inference on with no evidence at all for this years appeal (2017/18)?

H - Your Question:
I have just had a letter to tell me my daughter's father owes me £19000+ he has his own business that he runs from his mother's house and also currently lives there for the pass several years, my eldest is now 18, youngest 10 and he only once paid £5 in the last 18 years I am told because he is self employed they can't make him pay?? I don't understand why CMS is not taking legal action? Instead sending me a letter telling me what I am owed and would I like to write of his debt!!!

Our Response:
If CMS cannot collect the money, you may wish to seek legal advice regarding whether you wish to pursue the matter independently through court.

I have always paid for my children and the youngest is 19 this year. I have just recieved several amended csa bills one saying i have to pay £190 a week then another stating £280 a week i am not behind and earn around. £450 a week. How does this work then apart from all the benefits for the child the mother is going to recieve all this per week. My problem is i do not believe my daughter is living in the area or with her mum but with a partner.How can i prove this to csa or can they prove to me that she is living with her mum and is in full time education... Where is the help and support for predominantly fathers. Trouble is my employers will just take that money out of my wage an pay it because some people think csa is law and always right.I cannot live on £170 a week and my child has £280 christ my rent is £100 then petrol to get there so looks like i may become unemployed.. Bravo well done csa

@Unfair4Fathers -If you have your child for 175 nights or more: child maintenance is reduced by 50%. If your ex claims child benefit, then you are by default the paying parent.
GreGF - 9-Feb-18 @ 10:10 AM
I have a court order which states I have the children in my care for 7 in 14 nights and the mother has the children in her care for 7 in 14 nights. I pay half of all school trips, half of lunch money, half of any extra curriculum activities If the children are sick or on holiday the care is shared equally which is covered in the child court order. CMS still stay she is the resident parent and I must pay CMS because the mother claims Child Benefit. The child maintenance act 2012 regulation 50 says clear that this should be a special case in my mind and no maintenance should be paid, is there anything I can do? I have appealed to a tribunal.

Anxious- Your Question:
My husband is heading for a breakdown and I’m distraught , the CMS are taking far too much out of his weekly wage for one child , after weeks of telling them it was wrong , they agreed that on his current earnings it was too much and would review it.today his new payments came through for even more money , with lots of unexplained charges and unexplained arrears. How can this happen in our country in this day and age.how can a department just decide an amount with no reasoning behind it and not have to answer any questions or tell you why , and also tell you different things on a daily basis.we will end up losing our home which is rented as we cannot afford payments for long.we aren’t young either , late fifties.my husband sobbed his heart out and I’m ill with the stress.it’s also preventing him from visiting his kids as we live so far apart and he will not be able to afford the petrol.he has never missed his visits ever since his divorce(his ex wife was unfaithful).dear Lord is there no one who can help.Inreally believe he will have a heart attack and I’m so scared.He works nights driving three times a week for 8.00 an hour , we are not rich!

Our Response:
I am sorry to hear your husband is not coping well. As a rule, all non-resident parents pay the same. For instance if your husband is calculated as paying the basic rate and the child stays with the parent who receives child maintenance all the time, then he'd pay pay 12% of his gross weekly income (unless there are arrears from a previous debt, in which case he would be asked to pay more). His only recourse is to complain, please see link here. You can see how child maintenance is calculated via the link here. Also, he can request a variation for travel etc, please see link here . I hope you manage to sort this issue out.

Name - Your Question:
Is it legal for the cms to collect arrears from the old csa system when the csa case was supposedly closed around 6 years ago? when it was supposedly closed I had apparently built up £1500 in arrears because they had messed up with wage reviews, doing a review in august 2011 of October 2010 wage slips. at the time my ex agreed to go to direct pay between ourselves as I couldn't afford the £200 a week the csa wanted to take from me. and I agreed I would pay for more things to help out and have my son more times per week, which has been no problem for like 6 years util now we both received a letter from cms, but now its changed over the cms say I still owe this money, yet we both thought the case was closed and havnt even heard anything about the £1500, they are threatening me talking about court action or selling my property or removing my driving license ( for some reason) is this legal?

Our Response:
You would have to try to resolve this matter through the link here . You can also see more via the leaflet here , which tells you what legally can and cannot be done.

Trying to find out if a CMS case is left open due to a U.K. pension is being paid so obviously that’s taxable income ,and child maint will be paid against thatif ,my brother gets a job in Dubai which is not a REMO country and his earnings are non U.K. taxable will he be chased by CMS for those once he returns from Dubai at end of contract because the case is still open ? Or do they get disregarded as no tax has been paid in the U.K. for those ?
Corri - 4-Dec-17 @ 4:24 PM
@Frecks - if you have proof your ex earns an income, then you can take it to court. A court will analyse his income more more thoroughly than CMS will. But it has to be based on a taxable income, not assets the court won't take these into consideration when working out child maintenance.

Gta - Your Question:
My daughter is now doing a level 6 qualification. The child benefit have confirmed to me today that this is advanced education and therefore my ex is not entitled to child benefit. The child maintenance service called me to say that my ex wife spoke to the child benefit and stated her daughter was in full time education only and they said she can continue claiming. I have uploaded college correspondences to the CMS where it clearly states the course is a level 6, higher than A level and equivalent to a degree, but the child maintenance service appear to be taking my ex wife's verbal say so over my hard evidence. I have told my wife I will continue to support my daughter, as I have for 13 years, but directly and not through her. This is clearly unacceptable to her as she is continuing to fight it. Why would she do this if the money I give her goes to my daughter anyway.unless of course it doesn't!! What can I do to escalate this?

Our Response:
Your only recourse would be to complain directly to CMS, please see link here . I suggest you do not stop paying child maintenance currently, as regardless of whether you are supporting your daughter directly you could be subject to arrears and have to pay this money to your ex, if CMS rules in her favour. I would be interested to hear the outcome of this matter and whether CMS can take the ruling into its own hands and on what basis, even if child benefit payments have stopped. Please keep us updated.

This service is a joke my daughter is 10yr old and i have had a private arrangement with her father for 6years which worked well up until june this year when he basically kept my daughter for 1wk longer than agreed without any contact (also bearing in mind he is the reason why ive been a victim of domestic abuse) my daughter begged me to not let her see him again we are in the mid of a court case. He rents out 2 properties has a propertie in italy and in april sold a 3rd propertie that he owed with no mortgage left for 180,000 used 35.00 if that to start a home care franchise. He hasent paid a penny since june 2017 and ive just received a letter from the csa stating that after THERE CALCULATIONS he does not have to pay me anythibg for a year!! Where do you people get your information from the system is a complete joke
Frecks - 3-Oct-17 @ 7:14 AM
The cms continued to put me in debt even after they knew I was no longer working , they rang my previous employer and the director confirmed that I no longer worked there but they still continued to run up a debt . I rang them recently because they have froze a large amount of cash from my bank account to cover the debt . I questioned them about why they didn't contact me regarding the case earlier but they couldn't answer , I also questioned them about the time they rang my previous employer and I was told that they have lost the evidence (conveniently).... Basically they knew but ignored the fact that I wasn't working and continued to charge me is there anything I can do about this ??

Sdcakt - Your Question:
My son, has a 0ne year old, he has paid maintenance since the day he left, but his ex is bein unreasonable with acsess, at first he had her alternate nights, then because he spoke to someone ske didn't like she dropped it to one day during week, n one at weekend, she threatens him that if he does anything she doesn't like she ll see her less, he's scared to go to mediation as she ll stop him seeing her while the process goes through, what should he do

Our Response:
I'm afraid your son is in the difficult position of either allowing his ex to control the situation or trying to take control of it and suggesting mediation in order to come to an agreement and if she refuses taking the matter to court. Many fathers wait to take this route when do only when access has been totally withdrawn. I'm afraid there is no middle ground - he either has to bite the bullet and risk having access withdrawn while the matter goes to mediation or court - or continues to let his ex dominate the arrangements.

I've had issues with CMS changing my address and blaming a third party, I have went through everything via the correct legal channels and they have managed to get away with as far as I'm concerned fraud! But police in England claim its a mistake and police in Scotland claim its a civil matter....if I give false information that's fraud! But if they do it, it's acceptable?!? They have used my income where I had to do overtime as they were over charging me. I have lost my house, my relationship with my now ex partner, I'm further away from my kids as I had to move in with my family and it cost me my job! Despite informing the judge of all this he still upheld the CMS decision! They claim to be there for the child but they're not, they're there to make a profit by lying and getting away with it! And they wonder why dads commit suicide over this? And then they deny it's their fault! If I was an absent father and lied then by all means screw me for everything you can but the fact I do everything I can for my kids and you then decide you want money because my case has been open and honest since day 1 you'll lie and use income based 4 years ago and send relevant letters to an address I've never lived at just to show you've followed procedure in order to get an attachment to earnings! Which you don't have to apply to court for anymore! Robbing, cheating, lying, thriving, corrupt organisation and I'm going to bring the system down!

Doc - 26-Feb-17 @ 4:40 PM
I have arrears of 47 grand!! I have children by two ex partners. I had been paying both cash as they were on benefits and also basically said if i didn't pay cash i wouldnt be seeing my kids. At the time i didnt even know that there were CSA arrears building up as i'd had no letters asking for information or stating what i had to pay. Happily trotting along paying them both until suddenly out the blue, a liability order for over 50000 pounds. The long and short of it is that 1 ex partner told the CSA that i had been paying and wiped off 27000 quid and closed the CSA case. The other ex partner who strangely enough at the time of the CSA contacting was not allowing me access and we was not getting along, very very very bitter and is to this day. She has continued and is pushing for the money, basically wants to destroy me. Alas my issue is that i am self employed and have been for many years, the CSA approached a company that i sub contracted to for wage details, not the Inland Revenue but a firm that my ex partner told them I worked for. So basically the figures were around a 1000 a week, but thats before i take out my business cost etc etc. So the CSA wanted 250 a week for nearly 3 years and I didn't even know about it. So obviously the appeal time frame is gone. My tax returns for those years show i earned half of what they calculated. Yesterday i have been told that 47000 quid arrears stand and i have to pay money that i never even earned. It like a massive black cloud hanging over you, i have been offered a great job but cant take it, i am actually considering just packing it all in and going on the dole. The CMS said my only option is to make my ex partner an offer of a lump sum. Any thoughts and ideas will be appreciated
Steve - 7-Jan-17 @ 4:58 PM
My experience tells me that CSA is an absolute rubbish. A waste of money and resources. My stepson's father has been lying to CSA for a good 3 years. They know it and they still say that people need to be believed. Recently he told the CSA that he was leaving the country and that he made private arrangements with my wife. My wife never heard from him. Suddenly it comes one bank transfer by standing order from a British bank, from him of £5. Two transfers on the same amount have been made for the child one month apart. Therefore I assume that he "decided" that the child needs £5 per month. I contacted CSA with my wife's permission and the staff was rude to me and said that CSA is not an investigating Service and that they have no reasons to believe that he is lying even after I told them that he keeps writing to his son with no sending address but the stamp from the post office is from the same city where we live in the UK. When the lady on the phone told me that they care about the children i, obviously, told her that she cares about her wage. Now the CSA refuses talk to us because, apparently, in one occasion, I Was Rude and thew staff had to finish the phone call. I honestly do not understand why a service that is meant to take the steps to ensure that the children get the support they need is covering up for the parent that is just refusing to pay. According to them the father told them that he was moving to Russia although he does not have any links to that country. I thin they believe that he flies from Russia to England, posts a letter for his son, and flies back to RUSSIA! Really???? He damages the kid's head because he is 11 and one day his father tells him that he is going away for good, weeks later writes to him form the same city and tells him that he is abroad. Then he tells his son to write back to him to his uncle's address in the UK as his uncle will make sure the letters will be given to him. I know that this guy must have a very fertile imagination as this looks like a soap story but CSA is allowing him to go on with this and he laughs!!!

Hello When they want Cms want money it's gone taken but if they owe you money and been truthful in a tribunal how is this system fair to keep taking money out of a low income The new system doesn't allow housing or household bills it's not means tested But car insurance is ??? Funny thing without an address you cannot get car insurance or have a job This system is flawed it's stealing no gain for children it's corrupt about profit Using scare and blame tactics to brain wash men mostly that we lawfully have to pay Ok I'm paying I'm still being bullied over access and cocersive and controlling behaviours I work ill phone the police if you knock How is that about my children's needs I need to pay my child support ok not your administration chargers I'm in debt because £84 it started out as wasn't enough in profit So this year 3200 out of 13,500 after tax that's so far they want another £295 month till March £5500 in one year How is this system allowed to be legal Children need fathers want The mother has and the law is an arse and so is child maintenance system
Dave - 31-Oct-16 @ 3:53 PM
I was paying csa on an attachment of earnings and now I'm paying direct debit, up till last month when it was an aoe I paid £288 for my daughter yet despite not owing a penny in arrears or missing any payments the direct debit went out today and they've taken £384 how can this be right, I've supported all my kids from birth never got any benefits always paid through hard work, she hasn't given our boys a thing since she walked out on them 5 years ago, I now have set them up in there own flat, again she did nothing, yet I'm killing myself every month to pay my bills make sure I help our boys and pay my csa while she sits at home everyday with her partner raking cash in,surely the law needs to change as like many good fathers there is no help off csa for us
