Subject: CSA re-assessment Posted: Thursday, December 5, 2013 - 12:54:16

How can working mums be given fair maintenance amount when x2b\'s overtime is voluntary? There was a calculation carried out which was a true and accurate record of ex\'s working hours. When CSA contacted him with schedule he informally appealed the decision and worked 4 weeks flat money to get re-assessment reduced. And then, went back to working overtime!!! Is there anything I can do about this except play a constant game of cat and mouse? It is a substantial difference to his wages and I only want what is fair for my daughter, has anyone else been through this? Thanks

I am in similar job situation regarding overtime as your x2b. Although it is voluntary overtime, it is not always available to do so I can understand why he would want to be assessed on \"flat\" money rather than be assessed on x amount of overtime, only to then see the overtime dry up and still pay as though he were doing the overtime. I am doing something similar, then when i work overtime i can spend the extra money on my time with my kids and also try to rehouse myself. It is also his \"free\" time he is giving up to work the extra hours so it should be his choice whether he does so or not. I also find that sometimes when i work overtime it can impact on the time spent with my kids as i cannot be in 2 places at once unfortunately! I would love to work overtime on weekends as the money is good but i would personally rather spend the time with my kids which is surely better for them than their mum having a few extra quid to spend. Or isnt it?

It is so frustrating!!, he does overtime when he should see daughter, picks her up late and I pick the bill up for afterschool club. It is very difficult to look upon this rationally without me being bitter. He has moved in with OW and 3 kids which I understand he needs to support them because OW does not work. I have been with him for 15 years and O/T has never dried up (I know never say never!!) and he is walking on the air of caution - whilst I find it completely unnacceptable. Jak74 I found your comments very useful from the other side of the coin. Only thing being he does not spend money on time with daughter because he chooses overtime against spending time with her, and as I said earlier I am paying afterschool club!!! or picking up the pieces of him not being able to see her. It is not about a few extra quid at all - I am a professional working mum, why should he get away with shirking responsbility. You sound like you have your priorities correct - in my situation - far from it!!!! Thanks anyway.
