DNA test proved I am not the father, CSA refuses to give my money back
December 9, 2011
In 2001 i was contacted by the CSA to inform me that I was the father of a child approx 1 year of age. I knew the mother as we had a brief relationship when I lived near her. The child was born and I worked out the dates and had a fair conclusion that I was the father so I started to pay maintenance. The CSA didnt really give me a chance to have a DNA test.
Fast forward a number of years and after I made contact with the mother of the child she stared saying things that raised doubt in my mind and then my fiancee started to look at pictures of the child and said I should ask for a DNA test. this I did and we completed 1 through a private agency, the results were that there was a 0% chance I was the father. The CSA wouldnt accept this so I had to do another this again showed I was not the biological father. The CSA gave me £390 back payments, this I had to then give to my ex-partner for my Daughter.
Since January 2011 I have been fighting the CSA for all the money from 2001 to be given back to me, this amounts to nearly £16000. to date I have written letters to 2 MP’s, the CSA and the Independent case examiner all of whom have said no you cant have any more money. I have no chance of claiming this money from the woman who bough the claim to the CSA.
So now what do I do…… the CSA/government is quick enough to take money from me but why cant money that I paid in good faith to a liar not be given back to me……
