    CSA debt over 6 years can't be enforced?

    CSA debt over 6 years can't be enforced? 18th Apr 07 at 8:26 AM

    Hopefully somebody can confirm this. I have nearly 3k outstanding maintenance that the CSA was collecting at the minimum amount of 5 per week as my ex went self employed and only declares minimum income. My ex ceased the payments last September and after chasing up with the CSA- I have been told that they can take no enforcement action against him for this amount as the debt originated from 6 years ago. It would appear my ex paid the minimum - waited the 6 years and is then able to simply walk away.

    This just seems so unfair - the children and the cost of raising the children doesn't go away!

    I was told that the CSA is bound by the creditors act or something?

    Is that it for me and this money?
