Paying Parent (PP) and the problems they have with the Child Support Agency

We have moved to a new website click on our new link Child Maintenance Advice

Paying Parents come to us with many issues from incorrect assessments to debt enforcement. To help you, we offer a range of services from individual telephone advice appointments, data file review and reports, arrears investigation, full case management and Tribunal representation. We can look at your circumstances, check your assessment and advise on enforcement. We tailor the service we give you to your requirements and quote you a fixed fee for the work.

There is now an additional problem for Paying Parents because as the CSA is getting ready to close its existing cases, it is carrying out an internal review of each one and once it signs off any arrears as being correct they will then be permanently fixed and cannot be challenged again. If you have arrears you dispute, you need to tackle this properly now so please get in touch and we can help you with our data file review and report service.

The main issue we find Receiving Parents need help with is to deal with the situation where they feel the Paying Parent is hiding income. With 20 years experience dealing with this, we can help you challenge and appeal the income being used.

We can carry out our own investigation into Company Directors to see if they are actually involved in the company or just appointed to receive dividend payments in order to divert payments. Our skilled accounting staff will look at retained profits within a company to see if it can be included as income for child support purposes.

We will use our experience and financial expertise to assess the Paying Parent's circumstances and we can help all the way through to Tribunal hearings. However, we do also believe that private agreements often work out best so if you want we will also try to reach a private agreement which can include the repayment of child support arrears.
