Man who discovered daughter isn’t his personal fights off baby help declare

A man who has already paid $ 68,000 for child support continued to pay after finding out that his “daughter” is not really his.

The Briton from Hull in the north of England, not named to protect the girl’s privacy, was devastated when his ex revealed the truth after 14 years.

Following her admission in October 2019, the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) agreed to close the case for ongoing maintenance.

However, the CMS refused to wipe the father’s arrears $ 3,585 – covering a period between March 2014 and October 2018 – despite acknowledging that he was “not the parent of this child.”

The decision was not reversed until media attention to the man’s situation sparked public outcry.

Originally, CMH had recalculated a payment of $ 65.25 per month to settle the arrears, which was deducted directly from his supervisor’s allowance.

Speaking to Hull Daily Mail, the father, who cares for two disabled sons full time, said the CMS should be “ashamed” of how they handled his case.

“Since someone who is currently paying for a child who has validated the CMS is not mine, I think it’s very important to highlight how they get away with what is effectively breaking the law,” he said.

“At the end of last year, my ex told me my daughter wasn’t mine, which was a bit of a shock given that she was 14 at the time.

“I was obviously devastated … I’ve literally given my ex-tens for the past 14 years … though I’m more upset for loving my ‘daughter’ with all my heart and doing my best for her. “

Although the father questioned the payments, he said the CMS stood firm in their decision.

The man was told he needed a DNA test to prove he was not the girl’s father. He agreed, but the girl’s mother did not respond to inquiries.

Commenting on the handling of his case, he added, “It’s a farce and the CMS should be ashamed.”
Local MP Emma Hardy urged the Department of Labor and Pensions (DWP) to “look into the case urgently,” but CMS said the man was still required to pay the arrears.

The man, who is not on the girl’s birth certificate, said he was “shocked” by the decision, adding, “How can I possibly owe money if I’m not the father?”

After the Hull Daily Mail published the bizarre decision, the CMS agreed to clean up the man’s residue.

A spokeswoman told Hull Live: “Before the case was closed in October 2019, there were arrears in payments. After examining the case, we decided that (the father) did not have to pay any arrears. “
