I am really interested to know how other mothers feel about this issue. I am married to a paternity fraud victim. In 2006 he had a one time encounter with the child's mother. Six months later she tracked him down through his employer and told him she was pregnant. He signed the paternity affidavit at birth but due to being an over the road truck driver never established a relationship with the child. When the child turned 2 years of age the mother started dropping hints that he was not the father. How convenient when there is a 2 year time limitation on challenging paternity right? Of course he did a home DNA test and was excluded as the father so then he took the child into a lab and had a legal test done and got the same results. However since my husband did not find out he had been lied to in a timely enough manner for California, he still has to pay a ridiculous amount of money on a child that isn't his despite having 3 biological children and a step child to support at home. And now we have discovered this woman's eldest child's alleged father is not the father of that child either. So now this woman collects money from two men that do not father her children. Both of which signed the paternity affidavit after being deceived as to the true parentage of her children. And lastly she has a third child that has no father because honestly she didn't know who it was and so he carries his mothers maiden name. So fellow Mothers out there, I'd really like to know if you think that the state should over turn the law and free the thousands of men that have been duped into fatherhood or if you think that they should continue to have to pay and why?
