Some time ago I wrote a story about how the CSA made me guilty until proven innocent. It is now two years on and I have had just about enough of the situation.
A fair number of you literally thought I was evil because I said that the problem is her fault and not mine. Well I decided to take your advice people. I went to the CSA and said I want a DNA paternity test so I will know for sure whether or not I am the father. Maybe then I could have some sort of normality back in my life and perhaps be a father to a child (because society makes you?)
Two years later and about 40 plus letters - still no solution. To really top it all off the CSA have given my details out to the PWC (parent with care); my address, telephone number, even my place of work and current salary. The PWC has contacted me and called me all the names under the sun; she said I'm just stalling the CSA and telling them to stop bothering me. All this despite the fact that all the letters I have sent have merely said that I want a DNA test as soon as possible. Not once have I stalled them or used stalling tactics - I JUST want a DNA test!
The CSA has also demanded that I pay £3,000 one month, then £4,000 to be paid in 7 days or it will effect my credit rating and my home maybe repossessed.
Even after many pointless conversations and complaints, the CSA still won't listen and still won't help in resolving the matter. I have done everything in my power to sort out the issue, going to court is the last option and one I really don't like the sound of.
I have actually moved home out of safety concerns for myself and my family. As I said in my previous story, I don't know this girl, she appears to be hell bent on lying to the CSA and maybe she is the root of the problem?
It doesn't matter what you do, run and hide, or hit them head on with all the advice and morality in the world; you're still treated like a criminal, you're still fighting a ghost and a faceless system! The child isn't even going to be three this year and I can just see him turning thirteen before this problem is ever resolved.
