The CSA were contacted and have been involved since approximately 2011. The money was paid to me via them - no contact with the dad (volatile relationship). Sarah, my daughter wrote him a letter requesting that they meet - he did not reply. I spoke to him a few times at his work, where he gave me various excuses, the last one being his doubt to Paternity. Hence the CSA involvement.
I personally have seen him "at work", he is a qualified picture frame maker, i.e. loading/unloading van. His motorbike is parked on the pavement directly in front of the shop window. His assets (to my knowledge), is a new motorbike - replacing a old, tired looking motorbike.
He apparently gave up or lost his Council flat, which the Housing Benefit were paying for. Now lives with his girlfriend in HER Council place, along with HER children. One of his excuses for not wanting to reply to my daughter's letter is, "she wouldn't like it and would throw me onto the street". As for holidays, the Shop closes for 2-3 weeks each year, all the staff have the same holidays. He has no assets/houses/businesses, that can leave a paper-trail for the necessary officials. Even the wage packets that he used to receive from his boss were unused, he would then mark them wk1, wk2 etc, how much he earned (always making sure it was under a certain amount, to be entitled to top-up benefits), seal them, crumble them up, tear them, cup stain them (to give impression that the packets once contained money), then send them off to the Benefits Office. Now he is totally under the radar!
His boss is the sole owner; his name is ***** ***** of the business, of which he had one shop in Essex and one shop 5mins walk away from me. Also, Leonard, his boss, has purchased next door and has extended the business.
