CSA yesterday. I was astounded.
I am seperated from my wife of 28yrs, my youngest daughter is 17 in a
few days time. Has never worked or should I say stuck a job since
leaving school, So she spent the most of last year on a course at the
local tech college, I have paid her regulary directly into her bank
account. spending money etc (obviously I have these payments on my
statements) So now I have the fast talking lady on the phone from the
CSA, I think my ex brought them in because daughter was lined up to go
on a 2 years course starting in September, although my further
enquiries reveal she failed to attend the "Taster day" this week so is
not now on the course (par for the course with her) BUT not
withstanding that. I need guidance from someone experience in these
things. What is my obligation with the CSA, and when does my
"obligation" to my daughter end, and in what circumstances.
CSA lady said "It could be 19" when I asked her. She did a quick
totting up and a rough estimatet is 47 pounds per week, however I am
being sent a pack, and a request for 3 pay slips. (which is great, I
only started work with this employer 3 months ago) The money is not
good but after 7 years of contracting and the current economic climate
I thought I would take a perm job, something I really am re thinking
I was asked if my ex receives Child benefit for daughter honest answer
is I dont know. What is the significance of this ?
I was going to ring the ex to discuss today but think I will hang back
to cool off,and get some info on this.
Any help\advice\input would be appreciated.
