    Csa fraud 13th Jan 18 at 8:33 PM
    I need help and advice and I don't know who to turn to. My mother has once again put in a claim for my dad to pay her £600 a month for the one out of three children they have together. My mother is married to a considerably wealthy man who owns his own business, they live in a big !!!! off 6 bedroomed house and yet she still claims that she earns no money. I have proof that she's running her own business and is clearly dealing with all the money cash in hand. She's claiming that she earns NOTHING! I don't understand how the CSA hasn't picked up on the fact that she has !!!! loads of money and she's just very greedy. I need help. I need to prove that this woman is earning enough money to look after the one child she's claiming for

    The parent with care can but in a claim, even if they were euro jackpot winners.
    The PWC cannot dictate what amount is contributed.
    Claims for sometime have gone via CMS.

    no I understand that the parent can claim. what I don't understand is how she is able to get away with false claims of earning less than she does

    She doesn't have to state what she earns or doesn't , no fraud is being commited, any PWC can submit a claim.

    what she earns is irrelevant in child support law, she has the legal right to claim maintenance for her child.

    What your mother earns is irrelevant. The non resident parent has to make a contribution to the financial upbringing of their child and rightly so.

    If you think your mother is hiding income, it's HMRC who might need to know, rather than CMS.

    as her earnings have no part in child maintenance calculations, what is she claiming that you believe she is making false claims over?

    Child maintenance is, simply, a recognition that the person who fathered a child should be responsible for contributing towards that child's upbringing. It matters not what the mother is earning, nor with whom she is living. The person who fathered a child is contributing to the upbringing of that child - not paying the mother.

    Under old rules, it does make a difference what income the PWC has, then if they state not income but jackpot, it would be Variation Order, maybe Appeal, lar de dar.!!!128562;
