HiThank you for your questionMy name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help the payment made via the CSA or under the terms of a Court Order?Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Via CSA.

Then it will end when the young person ceases secondary education or reaches their 20th birthday - which ever comes firstPlease ask if you need further details
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Then why is the CSA asking me to pay for support even though the person is over 20 yrs old.DoB 18-10-1994.

That would suggest that there are arrears which remain outstandingClare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thanks for your replies Clare,one last quesion.I don't owe no arrears,so what do i do at this point?

What exactly has happened - have you received a letter?

What doe sit actually say?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

What does it say above that
What does it say above that
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

How and when you need to pay your child maintenance and then followed by the payment schedule for 2016.

And it refers to the child by name and date of birth?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No it doesn't refer to the child name or date of birth.I only have one child payment to the CSA and i'm sure the letter is in relation to the child on their record.

Your faith in the CSA is touching - personally I assume an overall level of incompetence and I have never been disappointedThere are three possibilities1. They have written to you when they should have written to some one else2. They have a record of arrears that you are not aware of3. IncompetenceWhichever it is your next step is to WRITE (always write) to the CSA and ask for an explanationI hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further detailsClare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Thanks Clare,i'll write to CSA and see what happens,most pleased with your service.

You are welcome - I hope it resolves well
