    Where does my CSA Money go?

    Where does my CSA Money go? 25th Jun 13 at 1:54 PM
    I wonder if anybody knows if my Money goes directly to my ex partner?

    So I pay 600 a month and I wonder if she gets all of that, part of it or none of it and she just gets benefits?

    I've just recently met my Daughter for the first time and things are great, however things are not great with the ex, in fact downright hostile. I'm considering a private arrangement, as I would rather the money go direct than to the most inept government department I've ever had the misfortune of dealing with.

    I learnt many years ago not to contact them unless you really really have to as I always seem to come away from every contact owing them more money than when I started so I would rather not ring them.

    If 300 a month goes to the government then I can offer her 400 and then everyone is better off but don't know how it works with benefits???

    If anyone has any insights into this I would greatly appreciate it.
