ago. This prevented me from working for 5 years, and resulting in me
claiming DLA, incapcity benefit, and Housing benefit. Luckly, the CSA
payment was "frozen".
Now 5 years on, i'm happy to say that i'm well enough to go back to
work, and pay my taxes like everyone else! But I was shocked to find,
that the CSA are chasing me for arrears, for the time I was i'll!
(£3,500). Of course, I couldn't pay this at once, although the CSA
tried to pressure me into paying it all in one go. I reasoned with
them, and in the end, got them to spread the payments over 2 years! I
thought my payments would go down quite a bit since my eldest is now
19, but, in fact because of the arrears, it hasn't gone down as much
as i expected.
So now, as a result of finally getting well enough to work, i'm being
hammered for the CSA, Council Tax and rent! But what if I was made
redundant, would the CSA payment be "frozen" and if I found work later
on, would I be in arrears, and have to pay back the unpaid CSA
