Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
What is it that you wish to resolve as you refer to not being on a birth certificate and finances?

To find out whether the oldest child is yours you will need to ask the mother for her permission to have him DNA tested. If she refuses, your options are a) to go to court - or b) object to the child maintenance service that you are paying for a child which you believe is not yours - they are likely to order testing.
In relation to child maintenance, you can check your minimum payments by completing the online calculator here: https://www.gov.uk/calculate-child-maintenance
Does that assist?
