if your name isn't on the birth certificate because the women who had your child was still marries could she still get child support from you or her husband at that time

I supposedly have a son on the way, I tell you one thing, from other people's ignorance, or lack of knowledge, I continue to learn a lot. One thing I have vowed not to do is leave the hospital without a paternity test, and will not sign the birth certificate otherwise. Thanks to all the one's before me

while the mother and fathe, might-be fathers and other involved individuals are spreading their legs, arguing over paternal, custody and support issues, there is still a baby who had nothing to say about how he or she got there. how 'bout we show a little maturity and restraint before the sex act. every animal on the planet can procreate. that shows nothing. supporting, educating and caring for those children -- that is where the git-go is.

I think to solve any future disputes paternity testing should be automatically done at the hospital before the birthcertificate is signed . The woman knows the baby is hers .The man deserves proof,married or not .If there is nothing to hide the woman shouldnt have a problem with it. Too manny men have been lied to believing a child is their birth child ,that isnt .Cut the bull America and Canada and do automatic paternity testing . About men already paying for a child not theirs they should sue the gov for making them pay wrongly

The way the current law is set up literally to encourage women who get pregnant to be able to legally get child support, even if the other person questions it.

There is no deterrent, if they get busted... they don't have to pay back... they don't get in trouble... and if they can not find the real dad, the poor guy stuck with the original payments still has to keep paying.

There is absolutely no reason not to try this, its a perfectly legal extortion scam.

I am looking for anyone who is having a problem with Department of Revenue Child Support Agency. Please contact me with your name,case number and the issue that you are having. I will get your story to the Governors' office and get DOR to take a harder look at the case. I am doing this to help out all the women and men who can't do it for themselves. I want to expose DOR for not doing their jobs. You can e-mail me at [email protected] This is for both men and women. Child Support Agency needs to be investigated. They go after the men that are paying and the men who aren't paying they leave alone. I am trying to get the system changed and orders enforced. If you need assistance, the e-mail is listed. No, this is not a hoax, if I can't get your issue resolved I can get it in the hands of the people who can get it resolved.

Child support will not stop taking money out of my paycheck even though a judgment entry signed by a judge orders them to eliminate the support, because my exwife waived all back support in exchange for myself dropping a law suit against her for unpaid medical expenses.

I will try and make this a short story. My Boyfriend or Ex (soon to be). Was accused of getting a women pregant while he was in college. He was sent papers by the state of MI to show up for DNA testing due to paying child support. The 1st time he was served with papers he never showed up; 2nd time he showed and the women never showed he was grated "Not to pay support" due to the women not showing up. Years later the mom kills herself the family contacts my boyfriend and tells him to come handle the situation. The only time he spent with his alleged daughter was a very, very short period before she was walking. Now she's 15 and mom is dead and my boyfriend shows up at acts like a "Knight" takes his alleged daughter and her friends to a concernt in a limo and for some reason during this time takes a DNA test and finds out he's not the father. So, the family tells him to go away due to the DNA testing and he does. Now a lady who's a friend of the family kept in contact with my boyfriend telling him his daugheter doesn't understand why he isn't there to help her out of the siutation. Well, now the alleged daughter is now 18 shows up and wants another DNA testing done. He tells me that he's the dad regardless of the DNA results. I'm so appalled, hurt, and the rage is uncontrolling at times when he keepd telling me he has a daughter. Now she's dating a 30year old man and thinks she's wise beyond her years because of her situation and my boyfriend agrees. I want to tear my hair out! I told him not to spend a penny (Not a dime) and find out if she wants a daddy or a sugar daddy. The apple dosen't fall to far from the tree. Please Help I need advice.

I dated this lady 8 yrs ago and she got pregnant by her ex-husband and told me that she had not seen him in a year. So I believed her and thinking I was the only one signed the birth certificate. 3 weeks later we decided to get a test and the results return as me not being the father. Now 8yrs later I get a letter from Kansas stating I owe support. I have fax all test results to the child support enforcement but they say thats not enough I signed the birth certificate and I will have to pay even if the record shows that I'm not the father. Can anyone offer advice?

You need a attorney. There are some Attorney that will take this case Pro Bono (w/o charging a fee). I am not located in your area therefore I can not direct you in who to call. Is there a Legal Aid Service there? If so,go and speak with them. If you don't get the answers you need contact me at my e-mail [email protected] and let me see what magic I can work

What you can do is go to your local blood bank and see how much they cahrge for DNA testing. I know that you don't want to pay out of pocket for it but it may be your only option (you can always sue her later for the money you spent on the test.)
There are home DNA test kit on the market now as well.

Is it possible to successfully sue the DOR? Initial hearing judge awarded 14 months residual support...and non-cust right to claim child on taxes(mother doesnt work). DOR sees the 14 months as arrears and intercepted tax refund. Second hearing, Judge signs order stating 14 months is not arrears and to release the intercept on taxes. The following year...you guessed it. Tax refund intercepted. Does the DOR have the right to disreguard a court order? If not, can someone be sued to cover punitive damages, costs incurred and anguish?

You made a point and backed it up with reasoning. Your reasoning, however, proves that you are utterly selfish.

This law will solve allot of problems. I only question that if the man is acting as a father to the child that mediation and opportunity be given for him to decide whether or not he wants to pay child support. You might be surprised at their answers. As a woman, I wouldn't want a man with the lugage of child support from a previous relationship, especially if the child wasnt his.
Silly law

This law is crazy. In a country that foots the bill for $20 million illegals and countless other underachievers, however, what else would you expect?!
