Hello and thanks for your question.

I know this is not what you want to hear - but if you are the biological father of the child, it doesn't make matter whether or not you agreed to the pregnancy, or whether or not you knew that your ex had stopped taking the pill - if it's your kid, you are still liable to pay child support.

Here's a useful government website, which includes a calculator to work out how much child support you would have to pay:

If you think you might not be the father - but the mother still claims child support from you, the CMS will reimburse you for the cost of a paternity test if ithe test proves that you are not the dad.

Here's a list of labs that do paternity tests approved by the Ministry of Justice:-

I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.

Thanks and best wishes...
