    It look like you left UK to get away from all the things you didn't like. So why should the UK taxpayer now give you anything?

    You don't work in UK you don't pay tax in UK.
    You left to suit yourself.
    Seems you didn't do your homework properly. So now you just have to live with it!

    i never meant it was by law they should pay out but surely she has to be entitled to something!and why would it be down to personal responsinility?? it
    someone is entilted to something they should get it

    all you see on the news is this asylum family got this for all there kids and illegal immigrants are allowed it so surely my child being british is entitlted to it

    maybe we should dress up as pakis and we might get somewhere!or act like we are a penisoner and weve got it made haha

    Sorry but have to disagree that comment was very racist and ageist come to that. As I say, I and many others on this forum do understand your frustration at not being eligible for child benefits either here or in the U.K. If you had stayed in the U.K. and paid into the system as many and I quote "pakis" do then you would of course like them, be entitled. Had you been paying into the Spanish system instead of working cash in hand you would have been entitled to the very generous Spanish child allowance. It was your choice to do neither so why blame of all people pensioners, who by the way I am not one. They have paid into the system to get what little entitlements they have and certainly none that I know have "got it made".

    Benefit stops when you move to Spain. I was told this verbally and by letter. I was not able to claim even though I was still in the Uk system for some years after I moved.

    that was my understanding also, and what happened to me when I informed them and left the UK so I presume that is the law.
