Sorry if this has been covered before on this board. I did search, but if any MOD / ARRSE'r has any suggestions, please respond. I am currently subject to an automatic deduction of earnings in respect of CSA payments. This came about as a result of my case being a "Clerical Case" as opposed to my refusal to pay maintenance. When I mobilised for TELIC, I advised Chillwell about the payments, supplying all necessary details and the amount that was to be forwarded to the CSA each month. When I returned from TELIC and returned to my civi employers, the CSA increased the monthly amount by 250% to compensate for the fact that I was six months in arrears - it transpired that the CSA had never received payments covering my time in mobilised service. It took the best part of six months for Glasgow to transfer the funds, at which point the CSA paid the entire block of payments to my ex - despite me having effectively double paid. As a result the three years since TELIC has been financially fraught (the first six months after TELIC left me less than Â£300 per month to live on), but the events of the last two months have made me realise just how unfair the CSA system is, and I am after advice from anyone who has had a similar experience. In April this year, I took three weeks unpaid leave, and the CSA reduced the deduction to take account that I had only been paid 22% of my normal salary. My gripe is that in my May salary (100% of normal salary) the CSA have taken this months maintenance and also "the arrears" from the previous month. So, despite only receiving 61% of my gross salary in the last two months, the CSA tell me that "it's just the way the system works" and cannot be changed. Any thoughts?
