My husband just found out through a paternity test that his 12 yr old daughter from previous relationship is not his. He found out this possibilty after he ended the realtionship a few years ago. He tried to get paternity resting yr and half ago and judge would not allow. A different judge ruled paternity testing as he daughter is now developing relationship with a man who says he was told is the father. So now, he will go back to court and I am assumign child support will not be issued and his rights terminated as he does not desire to keep relationship. Can the mother be accountable in any way? What are my husbands rights in this matter? Yes he did aklnowlede paternity and had no idea he could not be father but mother also signed that she was truthful that he is the bilogical father?
This happened to my husband. The girl was 14 when we found out. My DH was never ordered to pay CS-but we did, we bought her clothes, shoes, toys and everything she needed, when she called and said she needed something we sent it and we had money sent to her mothers bank account every 2 weeks. So when my DH was court ordered to do a paternity test we did and it came out as not the father, then the courts asked us if we wanted to file a claim on the mother. We choose not to, but we could have and we would have won and we would have gotten money back. So yes you can and you will most likely win. But to us it just wasn't worth it. and I don't blame your husband one bit for not wanting to be active in her life, she is not his child and I don't think he is a jerk. The girl needs to know who her bio family is.
