Child Support - What if I disagree with the decision made by CSA?

You can object to decisions made by the CSA. The objection must be in writing and must be received by the CSA within 28 days of the original decision.

If the CSA does not accept your objection you can appeal to the Social Security’s Appeals Tribunal (“SSAT”) for a review of the decision. The SSAT is an independent tribunal which can review the CSA’s decision.

In certain circumstances, you can apply to the Court regarding an objection.

These include:

• If the CSA decision relates to parentage;

• If you have other matters, such as parenting or financial matters, already before the Court;

• If the CSA decides that a change of assessment case is very complex.
