What Can The CSA Do For You?
The CSA, abbreviated from Child Support Agency, manages the child maintenance schemes introduced in 1993 and 2003. This is a periodic payment made by a parent to support the child following the break-up of a marriage or partnership. The CSA contact number can be called by either the parent with or parent without day-to-day care of the child to apply. The CSA should be used when parents cannot reach an agreement between themselves. The CSA (also known as the child maintenance service) will help you find where the other parent lives if you don’t know where they are, will help you come to an agreement over payments and will decide how much payment should be made. They will make sure that the parent who doesn’t have day to day care of the child is the one who pays the maintenance and will then pass these payments onto the other parent. They will review payments against changes in the parents circumstances every year and will take action if payments aren’t made to ensure that they are.
In Scotland, a child can also make the application if they are over the age of 12. The legal definition of ‘child’ applied by the CSA is someone under 16, between 16 and 20 and still in full-time non-advanced education, and between 16 and 20 registered with a government-approved training course. There are two types of child support that the CSA can provide: a statutory arrangement or a more flexible family-based arrangement. Use the CSA contact number to talk to a professional adviser who can discuss which is best suited for you. It can also be used to appeal a decision. You will need your National Insurance Number when you call.

What Is The CSA?
The Child Support Agency is an arm of the Department For Work And Pensions responsible for implementing the Child Support Act of 1991. The CSA was launched in April 1993 and relies on a complex formula of 108 pieces of information to process each case. It determines such things as the amount required for a child’s support and the non-resident parent’s annual income. There are offices in Plymouth, Belfast, Dudley, Birkenhead, Hastings and Falkirk.
Customer Service Guru is a telephone directory and call routing service and is not connected to CSA. The direct contact number for CSA can be found in the public domain or on their official website.
