Oh thank you, how fucking kind of you.

Another government agency that makes a habit of fucking people’s day up.

Emma Chapelhow, 13, claimed that the £43,000 the CSA was demanding her father, David, pay to his former partner, her mother, would bankrupt him and significantly impact on her lifestyle, and threatened to sue to the agency over a breach of its duty of care to her.

Miss Chapelhow lives with her father in Nottinghamshire and does not see her mother, but the Agency is still demanding the money.

She said that by pursuing the debt it was breaking Article 2 of the Child Support Act 1991, which orders CSA officials to ‘have regard to the welfare of any child likely to be affected by their decisions’.

Now the CSA has written to Mr Chapelhow said that no action would be taken against his daughter, who is 14 next month, whilst she is still at school. The case will be reviewed again when she turns 16.

It has been chasing Mr Chapelhow, 42, a self-employed builder, since 2006 over back dated payments.

Last year bailiffs turned up at the house and allegedly threatened to remove assets, including Miss Chapelhow’s pony.

Mr Chapelhow has received a letter from the CSA stating: “We can confirm that in the present circumstances the Agency will not undertake any other enforcement action against you, including bailiff, committal and order for sale action, until Emma has reached 16 and only then if such enforcement action is considered appropriate at the time."

He accused the CSA of “intimidation” and said: “Their actions are even worse than carrying out threats now. It is the equivalent to a sentence which is delayed for two years.

"Emma is devastated and frightened and blames herself as she now believes that I could be put in prison on her 16th birthday.”

In writing to the agency threatening the legal action, Miss Chapelhow described her father as a "hero". She said she still intended to carry on the action, despite the reprieve.

All power to her. Fuck the state.
