Adopted child returns to birth mother who is claiming CSA from us

February 28, 2011

Our adopted daughter left home last year after and extremely violent outburst and social servcies took her to live with her birth mother. As she was under 16 at the time I assumed SS had taken parental responsibility fromus. In September 2010 they put a claim in for CSA which she then stopped when I said our adopted daughter must return home then.

She has now put another claim in. She always claims in her pre-adoption name so we repsond ot CSA that we are not the parent. This is so unfair this allowed to happen.

Social Services made terrible mistakes here, it is appalling.

    When the child is adopted then you are legally the child’s parents as the birth mother gave up that right, it can only be changed by the court, so csa have no grounds. Ring social services and demand an explanation, else every adoption would be open to this.

    You said ‘In September 2010 they put a claim in for CSA which she then stopped’..
    Please confirm who ‘they’ and ‘she’ are.

    Does the child live in Scotland? If so and if nobody else is getting child maintenance for the child, they are able to make a claim for child maintenance themselves.
