    Hi, does anyone get CSA money from their childs dad who isnt working, an dif so, how much can you expect to receive?

    DD's dad hasn't paid anything for over 2 years and it's about time he did. He's never volunteered anything, just used to say he would soon... it never happened.

    Thanks Lanny, its not much but its better than nothing.
    I wouldnt say I NEED his money but even if I was a millionaire I would expect something from him, its the principle.

    They can take 5 pound a week from his JSA, BUT if he has any other dependant children living with him that 5er is protected for them!! x

    Thanks, nope he's not got anymore and not likely ever to either! ... but that doesnt seem totally fair, cos just say a woman didnt claim becasue they said they were going to pay,and he then went on to have another child who lived with him then they would be ok whereas the first born wouldnt!
