Why is my husband still paying if his daughter moved in with us?

December 7, 2013

my husband has been paying csa for twin girls he didnt know exsisted until 4 years ago from a one night stand 19 years previous!!

the mother turned up out of the blue after 15 years demanding payments my husband gullible as he is paid the mother no questions asked?? myself and the family urged him to seek dna testing which csa refused to do as he had made numerous payments anyway 4 years later the twins are now 18 and at 6th form they leave in june 2014. our problem is 1 of the twins moved in with us in dec 2012 for a week short of 3 months my husband was still paying csa to the mother?!

she went home in the feb only to move in with her gran in the june!! we have since learnt she had left one of the courses in 6th form and is now only doing 8 hours?? we have been told the mother is still claiming for the twin as living with her and being in 12 hours education?! she is apparently being investigated for benefit fraud? we spoke to csa who told us it was under investigation but the csa payment was still taken out of his wages this month??

    Sounds like your husband has made a rod for his own back. Regardless of what the mother has or hasn’t done and can only take your word for it. If you have doubts then get a DNA test. CSA won’t deny that and if they aren’t his they will pay for it. If what you say is true (unlikely) then pay for it. After all those girls deserve to know the truth.

    As the girls are of adult age you will need their permission for a dna test plus I very much doubt you will get any money back if you’re only asking questions now.

    If the mother is convicted of benefit fraud then any monies paid should be refunded.

    If you’re having no joy with the csa then see your mp.

    Csa take the word of the pwc all the time without needing proof, if the pwc in this instance has deceived this man then he should be congratulated for trying to do the right thing….it’s the mother who might be defrauding (happens alot with child benefit) which last time I looked meant taxpayers funding it and is a criminal offence!
