What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CALIFORNIA
My boyfiends wife cheated on him a few years back. He found her in his home with another man. THe wife left with the man and then ended up pregnant. My boyfriend helped her find a place to stay when she came back after she had left him. Not knowing if the child she had inside was his he decided to continue to help her but has been seperated from her ever since. THe child was born and he was still unsure. A few month later her family performed an at home DNA test that the ex wife stated the test stated he was the father, he never received a copy of this test and he decided to go with it and went and signed a decliration of paternity after the child was about 4 months old so that social workers would give back the child they took and put in a home for about 4 months, since she was unable to care for the child herself at the time. We come to find out after the child turned 1 ,when we performed our own officeial certified DNA test that this child he believed was his and had paid child support while the child was in foster care and went through so much problems because of this woman......that this child was never his and her faimily explained to him that they thought she had told him that he wasnt the father when they did the original test. We were distrot after this fact.
The child support agency states that their records show that he established that he is not the father. He is going into court for the divorce next month and all the lawyers he has talked to say he has to pay child support for this child because he was married to her when the child was born. We dont believe this is right! What will happen in court? That is the question we would like to know. THe ex wife is currently living with the child for the past 4 months after she came with social workers and took him. She has claimed that the child is not my boyfriends son in court papers. She lives with another man and has had another child ever since.
What steps can we take to prevent her from receiving child support that we know she wont use for the child? We would like to turn from this situation and never look back and have no attachments to this. Not even visitations, we have been through hell already with all this.
