My daughters father is not registered on her birth cert. and is refusing to pay child support. If his name was on the b. Cert. would he automatically have to pay child support ?

There are a lot of personal issues and my ex kept away afterwards as he said he didn't want our child to be caught up in us arguing all the time. He said he'd wait until she came looking for him and now my daughter has started to ask questions as she now knows who he is and wants to see him. It's all a bit of a mess because I really hate my ex and I'm also getting a lot of pressure from my father who hates him even more than I do not to give him access.

If he has a DNA test he has the right to see his child, and your daughter has the right to know her father.

Louise: Why don't you want him to see his daughter? If he's abusive I can understand but it's not fair on your daughter to deny seeing her father.
I don't know what the laws are in Scotland but there should be a website that you could look up.

Hi, I'm Louise and I'm new on here and need some advise. My ex (we were never married) has had a DNA test and is paying child support and is not on my daughters birth certificate. I admit it wasn't a good break up and I have been mean in the past by not letting him see her. He is now pressing for visitation after 6 years , my daughter was born at the beginning of March 2003 and I don't know if the laws in Scotland can prevent him a) from seeing her or b) if he can have his name put on the birth certificate. Please help? I was told laws are different in Scotland, especially if the child was born in 2003? Have I been misinformed? Thanks.

If we are talking CSA in Australia, then rights have nothing to do with child support. Child support is decided by the agency, *rights* are decided by the Family Court.

However, more information about your actual question would make it much easier to respond.....I have not idea what you are specifically wanting to know.

I should add that he disputed paternity saying that I was pregnant before we got together. The CSA gave him 2 chances to take the DNA test which he didn't do, so in the end had to pay. x

Hiya!
I'm in exactly the same position. The CSA told me that he (my ex) could either prove that he wasn't my sons father or he could pay maintinance. He chose to pay but if he ever wanted access to see our son he would have to prove he is the father by taking a DNA test, before he can have access.
Hope that helps xx
