If the individual knows who the other parent is and the grounds for presumption of parentage are not met, the individual must take legal action to establish parentage.If an individual claims not to know who the father of the child is, it may be because they are afraid of violence or have other good grounds for an exemption from taking maintenance action.If a social worker considers that it would be very emotionally traumatic for the individual, to take court action and the situation is likely to be of a temporary nature, then the social worker may grant a temporary exemption and implement a shorter review period.
I remarried My 2nd husband Ed" in 1974 and we had to hire and pay for detective to find my ex' to ask his permission to adopt the 2 children! Ed" has been a great husband and father who treated and raised the children as his own."Yes' it happened a long time ago and i have remarried; my ex' died in 2010 leaving a considerable sum of money in trust to the women he lived with (they were not married).
As I" then Ed & I" never received a penny in children support not even a birthday-card.
She could perhaps consider a a particularly long course, such as architecture or medicine...
Sorry, the CSA are only responsible for child support from the time they received your application and it's isn't possible to make a claim retrospectively for back payments before the date of the application.
In these circumstances, the individual must be referred to a social worker.
If the social worker or service officer with appropriate delegation is satisfied that the individual does not know the identity of the father, an exemption may be given.
The case may be referred to a social worker if it is an unusual or complex case, or if the individual requests to speak with a social worker.
Where an individual seeks a 'parentage unknown' exemption for a second or subsequent child the matter will be referred to a social worker.
He was aware he had a son as your ex-p knew he had a child.
Perhaps one of the family lawyers could confirm this, but I think when your daughter turns 18 she can put in her own claim for maintenance, which would cover her until she finishes tertiary education.
The good news is that over 18s in education or training may claim maintenance in their own right from separated parents who can afford to contribute through the courts.
