Was just watching Dr. Phil, dads wanting to opt out of being a father.
Dad # 1 got his ex pregnant, and he wasn't give the choice to keep or not keep the child. His ex was on contraceptives, they agreed they're both not ready for children. Now that the baby is born, he's fighting the system because he's forced to be a dad and forced to pay child support.
Dad #2 was told he had a child 2 years after the child is born. He has since gotten married and had 2 other children but only knew about the child 2 years after. Wife of Dad #2 resents the fact she has to pay money for his other child knowing they have 2 kids together. Mom of child wants to get paid to go to the Dr. Phil show, gold digger?
Dad #3 was a sperm donor, but was chased after by the mom of his child. Should he pay child support?
What do you guys think? I've seen my share of dead beat dads, should the courts give them that privilege?
