Hi the baby was born in 29/6/1998 I am not sure that the baby is mine. the CSA have told me to take a DNA test but I refused that was last week

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
Why did you refuse?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

because I feel that is against human rights why should after all this time when it suits my ex-wife to start to interfere with my life

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi Mark
I do understand how you feel but unless you wish to end up paying maintenance for potentially the next four years for a child who may not be yours then you need to ask for the DNA test to be done
Sadly if the child is yours the fact it has a different name and you have never met does not mean that you will not have to pay child maintenance
The rate will be12% of 84% of your gross income and you have to pay while the child is under 20 and in full time (more than 12 hours a week) Secondary education
I know that this is not the news you wished to hear - but sadly it is the position that you are in
Please ask if you need further details
