If he is working and not registering as self employed or employed that’s illegal surely?  Because that would be tax avoidance as well as avoiding maintenance etc. I would guess its also illegal to pay people under the table as an employer so she could be reported to the tax man too. Although I’m no expert you’d have to look into it but I’d start with that.

Obviously if he is claiming benefits and working you could report him for benefit fraud but I’m guessing that doesn’t apply here.

If you have any written evidence that he’s said hes working like texts or emails I’d save them just in case too.

Good luck, I think it’s absolutely shameless when people dont contribute to their child’s life financially when they are able to.
