This leaflet explains what happens when someone named as the parent of a child in a child maintenance case denies that they are the parent.
This leaflet explains how the Child Maintenance Service investigates parentage disputes, and what happens during the investigation. It explains how disputes like this can affect child maintenance, how we sort them out and what happens after we have sorted them out.
