Paternity tests and the CSA

June 3, 2010

I have been in dispute with the CSA now for 3 years over the paternity of a child they state is mine, at first they claim to have not received my letter of dispute.

Then they sent the form for me to ask for a paternity test to a random address….now after what has probably been over 100 calls to them they state the only way to get a test is to take them to court, which i think is a good idea except for the fact that i’m one of those lucky few who earns to much to get legal aid and not enough to afford a solictor, now i’m fairly sure its possible to do it on my own as the C.A.B. is a bit vague on the situation. does anyone have any advice that could help me like which forms to apply for and such alike.

I’m even trying to prove that i wasn’t present in the same county when the child was registered…

any advice would be greatly received…..

    Hi Garith Hickman,

    You can download form c100 from HMRC website as you are trying to ascertain parentage. It costs approx £175 and the court will organise a date for the case. They may rule that a DNA test is necessary (this will cost extra).
