I am searching for mother's and woman who are familiar with or interested in changing the current WA State laws that are enabling woman to peg the wrong man as her baby daddy...I have worked hard the last several months and gained the support of my local Sen. Jan Angel to run a bill SB 5997 in the senate for session 2014. This bill has already had its first hearing in the Senate Justice Committee and is just "sitting" there waiting on these legislators to do something with it...more than ever I need more supporters to help email and call their local legislators and in particular the members of this committee to get the bill moving again. I believe that most woman and mother's know of some family court injustice...and feel the same as I do that men should not be lied to about being a child's father and have to pay for that mother's lie. My husband currently is forced to pay 850$ per month for a child that is not his and he has no relationship with...all the while our own children are going without things they need or want because of the financial burden to this non genetic child. This is vital legislation...I realize some people may feel that it would harm the child to "lose a father" but I want thos people to know that these children already "lost their father"...at birth when their mother's essentially "kidnapped" them from the rightful father...these woman also do everything in their power to disestablish any relationship between the "duped dad" and the child as they really only ever want money....there is no justice in this. The state worries about money paid to these children so they can collect title 4 part D federal subsidies for the collection of support and the establishment of paternity (this is no joke...WA State alone collected 12.6 million in federal incentives for this in each year 2010 and 2011) so the state claims "best interest of the child" while meaning "best interest of its own pocket book"...I have explained and shown proof to our legislators that the current RCW's would still allow the state or mother to find and establish paternity with the real father's even after the victimized men were released from this financial slavery...however...I really need more woman and men's voices being heard...this can be a very painful subject for those families being penalized for a crime they didn't commit...many victims of paternity fraud are made into the "bad guy" and told by judges, attorneys, the lying mother and even family members that they are "monsters" for ever finding out the truth or wanting to stop paying for a child that is not their's...this has to change...other state's have passed similar laws over the past 10 years and it is time for ours to change.
