What Happens When the CSA/CMS Gets it Wrong?

Complaints Review Team Csa Child Support

As with any organisation that relies heavily on administrative resources, the Child Support Agency or Child Maintenance Service may, from time to time, cause parents to become frustrated, disappointed and annoyed. A parent with care may express concerns over the lateness of payment distribution or the lengthy application process, whereas the non resident parent may feel stressed at having to provide so much personal information. Understanding there are times when the CSA/CMS gets it wrong will help parents deal with resolution.

How To Complain About Service

The first thing a parent should do, if they are not satisfied with the level of service the CSA/CMS provides, is to contact them direct. Contact can be made by phone or in writing. Communicating in writing provides the parent with a visual record which can be presented at a later date if required. When writing a letter of complaint it is worth photocopying the original letter, if a PC document is not used and stored.

If CSA/CMS staff are unable to resolve the issue and a parent wishes to pursue the matter further, details of the individual’s case will be forwarded to the Complaints Resolution Team.

Taking A Complaint Further

Once a parent has received a response, to their complaint, from the Complaints Review Team they have the option to take the matter further by writing to the Independent Case Examiner. This service is free to all parents, although the Independent Case Examiner will only consider accepting a case if they are satisfied the complaint has been reviewed appropriately and according to strict guidelines. In order to use this service however, parents must contact the Independent Case Examiner within six months of receiving the Complaints Review Team’s response.

Appealing Against A Decision

If a parent feels a decision is unjust or unacceptable they must contact the CSA/CMS and ask them to explain their decision. Parents can also request a formal appeal. It is worth bearing in mind that any new decision that the CSA/CMS make may increase or decrease the amount of payable maintenance.

Whilst the decision is being examined, the original decision remains in force and all maintenance payments will be collected and distributed accordingly.

Are Parents Compensated?

A complaint may highlight a lengthy period of processing, incorrect information or even a serious mistake. This is formally known as maladministration, and if this occurs an apology is usually not enough. Some parents may have lost money through the Child Support Agency’s or Child Maintenence Service's negligence and will expect to be compensated for the inconvenience.

In cases where financial compensation is paid out this will be treated as part of handling the complaint. A parent, however, has no legal right to compensation and must wait to have their complaint assessed. The CSA/CMS decide this by using a set of rules that have been agreed by the HM Treasury and the National Audit Office.

In the financial year 2006/07 the CSA paid out around £3.5m in compensation to parents.

Kirsty- Your Question:
My partner and I have been together for 10 months and he was paying maintenance regularly Up until his ex got addicted to heroin so he refused to fund her habit. After months of court battles The child in question has now been removed from her mothers care ( due to addiction ) and is now living with my partner. ( the father) Now csa has stated deducting £90 a week 'debt' out his wages which with rent bills FOOD and heating we cannot keep up and considering the child has been taken out her care what can we do about this? Why should my partner have to pay these apparent arrears when he is now the sole career and provider for the child? And the mothers addiction and tendency to leave her child with no food and spend money on drugs has came out in court?

Our Response:
If your partner feels he has been treated unfairly, your partner's only recourse would be to complain, please see link here.

Sas - Your Question:
HiMy partner has just received a deo for apparent areers he has, he does not owe this money but if they refuse to admit he doesn't owe the money will they reduce the monthly payments at all? He has not been allowed to see his son for 4 years despite many times in court (his child has additional needs and the 'mother' says it would upset the sons routine now and cafcass sided with her) He had always paid weekly through CSA but then it made more sense to pay the 'mother' directly. She has obviously now decided to lie and say she hasn't been paid. So as we have no paper trail I doubt they will wipe these 'arrears' so really my only question is will they reduce the payment of the deo as the amount they plan to take would leave us unable to pay all of our bills it would literally break us financially,If he can't get it wiped then he knows he will just have to pay but £290 a month is just unaffordable. Will they negotiate the payment at all?

Our Response:
Unless the family-based arrangement was authorised by CSA, then your partner may be subjected to arrears. It doesn't help if there is no paper trail of money exchanging hands either (cash should never be paid). Your partner's only recourse is to complain, please see link here.

Sas - 18-Oct-17 @ 6:48 PM
Firstly Boots I had exactly the same problem with csa so after sending proof several times to csa I applied to the courts for them to consider my appeal as per the appeals process. After courts wrote back saying the csa had to investigate they did and he was found to have lied about income and was slapped with £5000 arrears.Which brings me onto my question cma took over the case and he was told he was to pay back arrears at £130 per month I get a letter yesterday stating his now only got to pay £60 per month when I called cma I was told his called saying he cannot afford the payment so they "negotiated" the payment down.I know his lying as we are currently in court for financial settlement and I know he has savings over £5000 cma told me tough they won't change it when I asked if they went through income and expenditure with him I was told no they went on his word! What are my options?

Tori- Your Question:
Hi I met my partner about 11 year ago(2006) and he was making regular weekly payments to the CSA for a child he had with a previous girlfriend he never missed any he used to pay them by giro cheque , one week he was running out of cheques to use so had called the csa to ask for more and he was informed he no longer had any payments to make and he never heard anything from them until March 2017 when they told him he had arrears to pay so an arrangement was put in place to make payments and they were taken from his wages. He then received a letter at the end of August 2017 to say he had make all payments and would no longer have to make any. September 26th he receives a phone call from the CSA stating he has arrears to pay n had to make arrangements for this Can someone help or advise on what to do please as he is so confused Thanks.

Hadenough - Your Question:
My husband has been paying his maintenance without fail every month (standing order) and his son is now 19. He has recently signed onto a new college course "again" and his mum says we still have to pay till he turns 20. Only thing is I have read up on the gov website and it states that you only pay if she is still receiving CB. Si I checked up on that and he has to have signed up BEFORE his 19th birthday for her to receive CB. Shes told us that isn't the case shes still getting CB. I have also rung CB and they have told me the same as the web site and informed me that she needed to contact them to let them know he had changed courses and signed up for a new one. (She has made her son go to college so my husband has to give her money this is what is frustrating us as if he would have gone because he wanted to we wouldn't have a issue.) Can you please give us some advise? We had stopped payments so need to know asap thanx.

Our Response:
If your husband is paying via CSA/CMS, then he would need to check directly with them. If your husband is paying through a family-based arrangement, then there will be no repercussion of your husband having to pay back the arrears. His ex would have to make a new claim via CMS, if she thought she was eligible. However, for his son to be deemed eligible, his education must be full-time (more than an average of 12 hours a week supervised study or course-related work experience) to A levels (or similar) standard.

Oggy - Your Question:
Hi there , firstly to any man that has not provided for your kids are discusting!! And you deserve your arse bit by the csa! My name is Michael I have 3 kids who I love dearly and have supported from day 1 , 2 from one mum and 1 from another mum! I have an easy relationship with the mother of two now 14 and 16 years old paid for them all their life! Mother of one! She has taken drugs all our daughters life! Bought a known wrapist into her house to live with my daughter , had a son taken away from her (not mine) by the social, evicted from her many houses! But I continued to pay her , my daughter lived with her grandma for years also so I set D/D up to her to pay her grandmother! She also ended up staying with myself and my new wife for long periods of time too as her home life with her mother was extremely dangerous and unsettled!. When she turned 16 years old I paid for her to live with a friend who had horses! ( she loved them) my wife's friend who was lovely ! Unfortunately she didn't last more than 6 months there as she was troubled and was used to an unstable life and this was too stable! So she went to Newmarket and dossed with the horsing community , I was still giving her money and then eventually put her up in a flat ! I love her dearly but at the age of 18 she moved away and her mother got her claws into her again! My daughter is now 22 years of age and is expecting my first grandchild, I'm so excited! But a few weeks ago I had a letter arrive on my door step from the CSA STATING I OWED £17,000 and it was going to be taken directly from my wages! At £570 a month , I'm still paying £300 for my other two. I promptly rang the CSA to question this as my daughter was now 22 years of age and I was looking forward to supporting my new grandchild , but because my Ex wife has told them I paid nothing ( and here's the bombshell guys! There was no proof as she was always Adimant it was paid by cash £50 per week ( I know why now) I have been stung with a bill of £17,000 for my daughter whom I've supported all her life at the age off 22 !!! I now am having to tell her as I'm now paying out over £600 a month in maintenance that I can't help her with my grandchild as I'm in arrears every month with bills etc because of this !! Your all thinking I expect I was stupid not to pay her direct, but I actually don't believe she had a bank account earlier on! So.. here's my argument ! 1, If I never paid her ever ! Why only now go to the CSA?? 2, she lived with her grandma for years whom I paid but that has not been deducted off this payment?? Why 3, the CSA can see I've paid for my other 2 and never missed a payment! 4 , she's bloody 22 years of age! 5, my daughter has phoned the CSA AND TOLD THEM IVE ALWAYS SUPPORTED HER AND REMEMBERS ME GIVING MONEY ETC ETC ! BUT. there's not a thing I can do and I'm absolutely skint every month as the CSA are just taking it regardless! And I'm now worki

Our Response:
If your ex put a claim into CSA, and you ignored the letters or correspondence from CSA, then you will be hit with arrears, regardless of whether you helped your daughter directly or paid your ex in cash. The CSA only see what goes through its system. Your only recourse is to appeal/complain via the link here.

M - Your Question:
After arguing with the CSA about my income for about ten years (sub contractor on 0 hour contract) they have calculated I owe about £31,000! from 2006-2011 and sent this to the CMS!Even though I have sent evidence that the calculation is wrong they won't recalculate or do nothing about it. I've sent the CMS copies of letter from the CSA proving I was in contact with the CSA and copies of my tax returns for this period the still won't change it. The CSA say the case is closed so they won't change it. The only evidence the will supply me is a letter showin dates from 2006-2011 showing about £168 x by 298 weeks! I've asked for a full inquiry but they won't do that even though they say that will, just keep sending me a copy of the same letter.Don't know what to do now, any advice?Thanks M

Oggy - 28-Sep-17 @ 7:53 AM
Hi My ex recently decided to go through csa despite having a private arrangement in place for ten years. The arrangement used the csa calculator based on 40k. I knew he was getting dividends too but he paid a reasonable amount so i didnt bother with that. He has a successful business with his figures available on companies house. He went to vegas, bought a(nother) brand new bmw then told csa he was only earning 20k...despite his hmrc return last year showing a lot more, he only had to submit two payslips re his 'drop'. Maintenance more than halfed with a weeks notice. I put in a variation to have his dividends included. He had just filed figures for the most recent tax year. The csa used the new calculation and including a few months arrears the amount went up quite substantially. As far as I'm concerned this is his own fault for trying to fluff his income and I'm unsure if he realises if he puts his wage put back up after the two months wage slips he needed for csa, that they will backdate the extra at the end of the year? Anyway...he's now put in an appeal...if csa have used the lower amount for their calculations and his most recent figures for dividends what is he actually able to appeal? He did try a variation for shared care but we have no court order in place and an informal agreement for 2 nights every other week (from two months before he broached csa...his request)...i challenged this as he doesnt want to be flexible so missed weekends knock the figure down to under 52 nights a year. They rejected this variation. The website say figures can go up or down after an appeal? I have had a book keeper look at his figures and say it is a good/profitable company with no debts, he has kept £50k in the business this past year (diversion of income??) And they have recently employed more people so showing the company's taking on more work if anything. I think this is just a case of him not wanting to pay whats assessed as then this saga of going through csa will have bit him in the a**. But will a tribunal consider other things too (his outgoings/this years profits so far etc)? And will i have to prepare any information and/or attend the hearing? Id appreciate any advice...

The new csa ( child maintenance options) have recalculate my ex's payments they increased fir the first time in three years ! And guess what he's now lied about how often he has our daughter to get them decreased. The new system says if there is a court order in place then they believe that is what's happening even though our daughter was 5 at the time and 12 now . I have no means to take it back to court and they will only award him alternate weekends again but this duesmt mean he's following it so what's the point - how else can I prove he's not having her ???

Phaaaaaaa - Your Question:
I've only ever received the odd thirty pound about 3 payments, they decide they only owe so much due to not being able to prove there income being self employed my children have no hope off any support from their Father, 16,000 for the last 13 years of they're life's, they decided he owes, believe me it cost a lot more then this, who decides this anyway? Clearly hasn't any children. Pay for your children you choose to have or go to prison, this generation is strange, I put all my money into my children because they deserve the best, I live knowing they won't get anything but I will not give up fighting for what they deserve, they need to come down hard on these parents

Our Response:
The problem lies with the income the non-resident parents earn/declare to HMRC, not CMS who will do its best to retrieve money from the NRPs. The figures CMS use are taken from income tax paid by NRPs when they submit their accounts. It's a tricky situation that is almost impossible to prove otherwise, unless you feel your ex is hiding is true earnings and you wish to challenge this via court.

I have paid in exactly what the csa p/cms have advised since 2010. My ex partner has also been transparent regarding information passed to the cms. Last week the cms advised us both that I had overpaid by£1700 and to get thisback advised a contribution of £37 to my ex partner. This is clearly not an adequatefigure, I have made a complaint to the cmsand been advised that they may offer me £25 as a consessionary payment. Can anyone advise if I have a case for taking this further?

GC - Your Question:
Will the CSA repay the money of the DNA test proves I am not the father and I be paying for over 12 years

Our Response:
The CMS may ask the parent who was getting maintenance to pay back any money that you’ve paid since the date you denied you were the father. This will be decided on a case-by-case basis. The CMS will also refund the costs of any DNA tests you've paid for. However, you won’t get a refund on maintenance you paid before you denied you were the father, please see link here.

Poggy - Your Question:
Could you respond to my question of 30 June 17 please?I really would like to know where I stand.Thank you.

Our Response:
If your child's father is on jobseekers, there is nothing you can do outside CMS currently (which could force the payment of arrears). If your ex has not been paying the base payment and CMS have been unable to collect this (you don't say why), then your only recourse would be to appeal/complain via the gov.uk link here. The Child Support Agency or the Child Maintenance Service can only use bailiffs to collect child support arrears after they have got a liability order against your ex. Private bailiffs can usually only be asked to collect a debt after a creditor has taken court action.

The CMS have been deducting over £250 from my wages for over 2 years now. Having spoken to my ex partner who has shown me bank statements. She has not received a penny from them. What can I do? I feel that as I earn around £1000 pcm is this the correct amount to be taking. But the main concern is where is the money going?

Boots - Your Question:
I have recently discovered my ex partner had earned considerably more than he was declaring to the cms and csa. I have a formal complaint going through against the cms with the help of my mp as they will not use a p60 as evidence of his earnings!!!!I have now discovered that over the past 5 years he has taken home no less than £290k a year with one year taking £560k!! My daughter was getting £45 a week as he had lied about his earnings. This was under csa. Is there any way I can take him to court independently and ask the court for a re assessment going back the 5 years I have p60 evidence of earnings for? I don't see why she should miss out when he has lied

Our Response:
If your ex has lied to the CSA/CMS and you can prove this, then I suggest you seek professional legal family law advice. The court will look into his earnings in more depth. But you need to check whether you have a solid case to answer.

Thanks for your reply. Is it possible to take a case away from the CMS please if they fail to recover the arrears when my ex is in work? They have hardly got any payments for me in two years whether he is in or out of work and I have not had a single payments in the last 9 months.
Poggy - 30-Jun-17 @ 6:25 PM
@Poggy - the CMS wont do anything while your ex is not earning. Neither would the courts. There isn't much you can do currently.
