I have a 17 year old daughter that is in full time employment, through her employer she is doing a NVQ2 course which she has to attend college one day per week. I reported ex-wife for claiming child benefit whilst my daughter was working full time which in turn caused my CSA payments to cease in march of this year. My daughter picks up nearly £600 per month. I have today recieved a telephone call from the CSA saying my payments will be resumed as my ex-wife has made another child benefit claim saying that my daughter is in full time education but I know for a fact that she does only 5 hours a week at college and is at work for over 24 hours a week as I am regular contact with her. Can you tell me if they are entitled to cliam this? If not what can I do to stop it?

contacting CSA today and phoned child benefits to report fraudulant claim and have not heard anything back from them. Tried to cliam back CSA payments as my daughter has been working since November 2011.
HiWill the college confirm how many hours a week her course is allocated?(bearing in mind that full time means 12 hours a weekClaire
Yes the college will confirm that she only attends college one day a week for only 5 or 6 hours
HiIs this in fact an apprenticeship?Claire
No we believe that is not an apprenticeship, it is a full time job but as she had already started her NVQ course they allowed her day realise at college to continue with the course.
