Husband cheated and may have fathered a child....advice please
My husband had an affair with a married woman and she became pregnant. She says that the child is his but although she is married she is a habitual liar!!! Currently my husband is incarcerated and I just received a letter in the mail from the courts stating that she has filed an application on him for child abandonement. I am unable to get an attorney, as my husband and I hve 5 children that I am raising lone while he is away. This woman has made it very clear that she want's to be with my husband and has tried her best to torture me in the process. my husband hs had no communication with her since november of last year and at that point it was only to see the child one time. since then she has written several letters in which he has torn up or either sent home to me. iI sent all the letters and pictures tht she sent back to her. He was supposed to get out of jil on 6/11 but didnt and she filed this child abandonement on 6/12. My question is this...Is it even legal for her to do this when she is married herself? The law in my state(and most others) is that if a woman is married 10 months prior to the birth of her child that her husband is the childs "Legal" father. Is there anyone that has been thru this kinda mess before? I know that my husband ws wrong for cheating and we (as a married couple) have dealt and are still dealing with the infidelity. He is doing the right thing now and wants no parts of her or the child. She is truly the defination of a "Homewrecker". This whole ordeal has been quite the challenge.. Now I just need some good advice from anyone who has been thru this or that knows info on what my next steps should be.
