Why it makes real sense to get professional legal advice for a CSA problem, or child support appeals representation.
In this age of social media, people with a CSA problem often feel they no longer need to seek “old-fashioned” legal advice. Instead, they simply look up a Facebook group, join to get the free advice and think the problem will go away. In certain simple circumstances and in the long term this may resolve the issue but the reality is they are very often heading down a road which only adds to their problems.
Most Facebook groups are made up from people who have their own CSA problems and they offer advice based on their private experiences. However, they are often on there in the first place because they have had problems and their own cases have gone wrong! Apart from the fact that a one size answer does not fit all, there is often little or no understanding of what the legislation is meant to do and it often comes down to two warring factions being the PWC or the NRP. Every single CSA case is different so from an advice prospective this is the totally the wrong place to start.
If you had toothache, would you want to spend your time discussing how terrible the shops are for selling things that rot your teeth and how you can sue them or would you want someone just to sort out the decay and stop the pain? That is what professional legal advice does. Firstly the problem is identified (the rotten tooth) and the solution is put in place (the tooth is repaired). At this point if you want to find out what went wrong (too much sugar) then that the time to do it is after the problem has been resolved, not at the start adding years of misery .

Child Support and Shared Care
The CSA is changing the rules about shared care because under the new Child Maintenance Service the Government recognises that 50:50 shared care is good for the children and should be acknowledged. With the right approach and evidence, any liability could be removed completely.
