One in Six UK Women Named Wrong Dad When Seeking Child Support

According to a story in the Sunday Mail, one in six women who go to the Child Support Agency in England named the wrong man as the father of their child. DNA paternity tests, which cost around £300 and are carried out by the CSA, have revealed that in 3034 cases the man named as dad turned out not to be the biological father. Figures secured through the Freedom of Information Act show that since tests began in 1998, 15,909 DNA tests have been made. The number of tests carried out for the CSA has fallen over the years but the proportion of false claims is consistent. Source: sundaymail.co.uk.
