Can the CSA take the word of my ex that I haven’t paid?
January 8, 2013
Basically the PWC has gone to CSA asking for money from me.
I dont know if the child is mine or not, she has him registered as someone elses, she is married to this person and unfortunately for me she used to work for the CSA.
Once I had requested a DNA test she contacted me and said she would close the case if I cancelled it.
I cancelled it and she kept the case open.
CSA said that me cancelling the DNA was enough to prove I was the father even though I explained the situation to them and requested the test again, they told me no I would have to get the PWC to give me one and take her to court to get one (which I cant afford).
I have sent them copies of the childs birth certificate and her marriage certificate and asked them to provide evidence that I am the father but they arent interested and insist I pay the money. They have also worked out my salary to be 10K a year more than what I actually earn.
I have been waiting 6 months for a tribunal and still not heard anything.
Can anyone give me any advice as Its like talking to a brick wall, how they can make me pay over £300 a month without any proof the child is mine is beyond me.
Fair doos I was stupid to take her word that she would close the case in the first place but surely CSA shouldnt be able to take one womans word for it and demand money with no proof
