can the csa take money for my 16 year old daughter who has left school and is working for me
Country relating to Question: United Kingdom
Hi If her mother is still receiving child benefit - as she is likely to do until September - then yes I am afraid so
why ? if she is getting a working wage at 16 and 6 mnths why do i have to pay twice
HiMy mistake - I assumed that she had just left school.When did she actually leave?Claire
before christmas she just didnt go back
HiYes I thought so.So long as the mother is claiming Child Benefit the CSA will demand maintenance from you.I suggest that you notify the Child Benefit Office of the positionClaire
