Not the Dad, But Still Paying
Interesting figures from the USA
Nearly 25 percent of about 3,000 paternity tests conducted by the state Department of Human Services from July 2007 through June ruled out the supposed father as the biological parent. Nationally, that number reaches nearly 30 percent, according to the American Association of Blood Banks.
Another example of one of the numerous flaws in the Child Tax Law, the same symptomatic themes keep emerging worldwide in Child Tax Collection.
Why? Because the underlying methodology of current child tax law is based on a flawed set of assumptions.
Such as: Fatherhood is seen in Child Tax Law as a purely economic equation, revenue collection. The Father is seen as liable even when proven innocent by a DNA test. In New Zealand a Father has no legal right to obtain a Paternity Test.
Child Tax is all about revenue collection for benefit recovery and spousal maintenance – its nothing to do with what’s best for kids.
