This makes no sense to me.

Paternity doesn't count when it comes to a Hunterdon County man's bid to lower child support payments for a child that's not his.

Unbelievable. And he was only asking the payments be lowered, not terminated. Which would have been perfectly acceptable IMHO.

Mother should be held for fraud and extortion if she led the guy to believe he was the father in the beginning.

This guy should be on the phone with the ACLU, not whatever crappy lawyer he got out of the yellow pages.

Except "paternity fraud" is never upheld as a crime, and no one will force a single mom to return money to someone, because {think of the children comment here}.

itsdan: nd no one will force a single mom to return money to someone,

Funny, Department of Human Services in Maine found it very interesting that my ex-wife was collecting child-support from me *and* from the State of Maine *and* had me listed as a deadbeat dad.

When I was able to produce all the canceled checks from my Army allotment that proved that she'd been overpaid by 30 dollars each month for 5 years (not much, I admit), suddenly I wasn't deadbeat anymore and she was in the hole for about 30 thousand bucks. Seems that they wanted their money back.

No, the best interest of the child would be to find her real sperm donor and make him pony up.

Such a f*cked up system.

Just wait until they are adults. Then she can spend the rest of her life paying him back.

On a side note, they test newborns for infectious diseases (and often inherited ones) at birth. They should do the same thing for paternity. You wouldn't have to worry about tears or "You don't trust me!" if it were mandated by the government.

Well yeah, they want their money back. But would they have forced her to return a persons money back.

Yes, but that's the state wanting ITS money back. If it had just been YOUR money...

family courts are still biased in favor of women.

So they declared Bill Gates the father of the child and are forcing him to pay child support?

Why doesn't he grease the wheels of justice and find a DA to prosecute her for fraud.
 
2008-01-28 02:44:22 PM  
Poor girl (daughter). She doesn't know who her dad is. The man she thought was her Dad, is suing to be rid of the obligation she represents. And, her mother is a money grubbing skank.

Absolutely.
 
2008-01-28 02:45:05 PM  
Since this is all done "In the best interests of the child", I'd like to see a judge with a 6-figure salary take over the child support payments for a child that isn't his. It makes as much sense as making any other non-father pay it, plus the judge could pay more, which is obviously better for the child.
 
2008-01-28 02:45:10 PM

Wouldn't it be in the best interests of the child to have the father AND the judge AND the guy selling hot-dogs outside AND John from accounting all paying child support? Surely that would be better for the child.

Excuse always heard: "It's for the kids!"

Reality: The judge has an easier time imagining Dad drunk on the couch than they do imagining Mom drunk on the couch, avoiding making dinner or cleaning the house. Or on the computer, talking to her new internet boyfriend.

Well, she'll just grow up to be a money grabbing skank too, then.

The cycle repeats.

No good deed left unpunished.
 
2008-01-28 02:47:16 PM  
If the courts are in favor of the best interest of the child, they should take her away from her lying, fraudster skank of a mother and put her in a decent household before it's too late. And oh yeah, find the original "sperm spill" and make him pay, as suggested by others! I cannot believe that this continues to happen over and over! It is so patently unfair to put someone on the hook when they have often been misled themselves, and are quite often heartbroken to think "their" child isn't theirs after all. Talk about insult to injury! It's an outrage!

Why doesnt he sue for custody, could be interesting.

I feel really sorry for the little girl. I think that it is great that he still even wants to help eventhough he isn't the girls' biological father. Even at that, he is probably the only Dad that she has even known.

Women like that make me ashamed of my gender!!

As long as women keep getting rewarded by the FOTC, they have no reason to stop lying about paternity.
 
2008-01-28 02:50:29 PM  
He isn't asking for the money back or to stop paying. I think it's rather big of him to be willing to still pay some child support, even if the child isn't his.

It's not necessary. There is an equally culpable male in the equation, we just don't know who he is.

Are you folks really that stoopid? A better lawyer wouldn't help, and it isn't a prejudiced judge. It's a legal principle--the law presumes that any kid your wife has is yours. If you don't want to take that risk, don't marry a skank.
 
2008-01-28 02:51:07 PM  
Too late to avoid the pile-on, but I notice that the article is very careful to not say that the court isn't saying that the kid isn't his. The guy says it isn't, and he says Mom says it isn't, but one DNA test could prove him right...and for some reason it hasn't been done. I smell shenanigans on this guy's part.

The best way to purify yourself of the shame?

BUTTSECKS.
 
2008-01-28 02:51:36 PM  
Agree. Do paternity testing at birth. When you find out you're not the father, that is when you refuse to pay and dump the lying biatch. Especially if you married her.
 
2008-01-28 02:51:42 PM  
Women have entirely too much power.
 
2008-01-28 02:51:48 PM  
You all need to watch more Oprah or Maury. If a guy supports the child for any length of time he can be legally tasked with continued support of the child even if he turns out not to be the biological father. I'm not arguing fairness or anything. Just reporting on what I've seen on TV.

Perhaps the best interest of the child would be to get her away from that lying whore of a mom and award custody to the real father.

Some men are stupid. Before agreeing to pay child support, make 100% sure that the child is actually yours.
 
2008-01-28 02:52:29 PM  
"Dad" should now ask for proof that his ex is spending the money on the kid and not herself.

In fact, all child support recipients should have to prove where the money is going.

The DNA test was done. He is not the father.

Stories like this make me so glad I have teh ghey. The cards are stacked against straight guys. The system treats you like walking wallets. Screwed over? Who cares - women are the only ones with feelings so STFU and GBTW, automaton. I'm still deciding whether you folks who intentionally become parents are idiots or saints. Probably both.

only equally culpable in the sense that he may or may not have ever been told she was pregnant.

I noticed in the article that "he said he discovered he was not the father of the 10-year-old girl." I didn't see anything about him providing DNA evidence that the child isn't his, only that he's seen evidence that supports that. Maybe he should get his lazy butt into court and PROVE it first?
