Yes they completed a formal assessment however it was not to my wifes satisfaction and she rejected it. The case has remained open but with the assessment at NIL. I asked in June if they could re-assess the case and they stated that it was up to my wife to request the re-assessment. I am aware that she has been in contact with them. I am annoyed as the figure of £500pcm has not been derived from what my son needs for maintenance. My wife refuses to work and so is using every effort to ensure I fund her lifestyle as previously.
Yes I live and work in the UK. I also am living with my fiancee who is due to give birth to my child in the next three weeks. The court is fully aware of this and ignored the fact that I have two other dependants.
As my wife rejected the initial assessment, the CSA changed it to nil. If my wife had of requested a review, they would have come back to me with her requirements. However, the key question is does the CSA have jurisdiction over the courts as this case was opened prior to the court case (as they maintain)?
My income varies but is approx £32,000, however I am still awaiting the answer to my key question, who holds jurisdiction - the CSA or the Courts? The CSA maintain that they do yet at the final FDR, the judge maintained that the courts do? Could you please advise on this.
