CSA payable even after leaving education
in Child Support

Hi, my husband's son left school as a Year 11 in May and did not take up a place in college, which I reported to the CSA online in September. This was rejected and we paid CSA up until 18th October when I discovered that he was in fact in an apprenticeship. I phoned the CSA again and reported the change, it was put into an investigation with the deadline of 16th November, which passed - then we received a DEO letter as did my husband's boss! This is all outside of the child ever setting foot into college. Now, after many torturous phone calls I have discovered that Child Benefit was stopped on the 8th November - CSA will not tell me why she was granted two further months! - and this then means that we have to pay the arrears, which have now been ramped up higher thanks to her demanding Direct Pay! Please can anyone shed light as to how this is fair or possible as I have a different answer every time from the CSA.
