Father of all mix-ups for teen

`A teenager has been accused of being a deadbeat dad by a government agency that claims he fathered a child – when he was three years old.

Tyler Holden, 15, and his family were shocked when he received a letter of demand from the state agency that chases child support from fathers.

The Victorian Legal Aid’s Child Support Legal Service said it was pursuing child support for a son it claimed Tyler fathered on July 27, 1994.

The letter says if the high school student refuses to sign a statutory declaration confirming he is the child’s father, he must pay $550 for a DNA test to prove otherwise.’
