|A man from Coventry has launched
a crowd funding campaign to challenge the Child
Maintenance Service and their unfair practices after
being incorrectly identified as the parent to a
child and billed over £4000 in child support fees.
Alex Jones says he made numerous attempts to arrange
a DNA test through the agency but was repeatedly
ignored despite denying he was the father from the
outset. The CMS assumed he was the father even though
he was not named on the childs birth certificate
and was not married to the mother, both of which
are the agencies own criteria for assuming parentage.
He is now challenging the organisation and is seeking
to raise £10,000 through CrowdFunder.co.uk
to take legal action he hopes will stop unfair Child
Maintenance Service rules with a Judicial Review.
His campaign will challenge
1. The Child Maintenance Services' regular breaches
of the Data Protection Act.
2. The CMS' consistent breaches of the Human Rights
Act 1998 and the ECHR.
3. The CMS' ability to enforce a DEO without a
court order or any external oversight.
4. The CMS' ability to make parental responsibility
assumptions just on someones say so, without a
B/C, marriage certificate, or DNA test.
5. The CMS approach in sending misleading letters
and letters threatening passport or driving licence
removal and imprisonment.
6. The CMS' failure to consider the impact their
decisions have on paying parents.
7. The CMS' failure to carry out more stringent
checks to avoid malicious, false or fraudulent
