    Overpaid - no refund wtf 6th Jun 17 at 8:52 PM
    Hi all

    i'm going around in circles.

    CSA closed and CMS opened. Turns out an over payment of £1700 has been made yet the CSA wont refund as its "detrimental to the children" from my previous relationship (i also have a young child at home)

    complaints have yet to call me back (since March) and ive called every couple of weeks chasing it up.

    The CSA have taken money from me which legally they shouldnt have done and now wont pay it back. CMS have said they can't get involved as it sits with the CSA and not them

    ARGGGHHH what do i do... any advice is VERY much welcomed.

    I don't know. But I DO know that where I have had problems with government departments in the past, my MP has been very helpful. (I have been lucky in having an exceptional MP. Fingers crossed he will still be there next week.)

    Of course, you don't have an MP until Friday. But it might be worth writing then......

    That's great thank you, was thinking of doing that as a last resort. Maybe i need to get something drafted up and ready to go.

    Depending on the circumstances your ex may not have to repay it but if that is the case you will be entitled to a refund from the public purse.

    They will then try to recover it from your ex.

    Are you certain there were not arrears?
    These figures don't just magically appear, you get things in writing, surely you may have been aware you were over paying much earlier in the process? Before the CMS case started .
