    Michigan man ordered to pay child support for child who isn't his
    On behalf of Schwartz Law Firm posted in Child Support on Friday, August 2, 2013.

    It's common sense that fathers should only be required to pay for children that are their biological or legally adopted children. States put laws in place to make sure that fathers and parents do pay child support for their children. But sometimes the good intentions of these laws backfire and don't play out as expected.

    One Michigan man is currently in the middle of a child support dispute over a child that he did not father. The man is the father of two sons. He had the boys with his now ex-wife. He was shocked to find out that his ex-wife recently had another child with another man and that this occurred during a time when the couple was only separated, not yet legally divorced. Even more shocking was the follow-up letter that claimed the man owed almost $9,000 in child support for the child he did not father. And that the order is actually legal.

    Under a Michigan law, drafted in 1956 and titled the Paternity Act, a child born to a married woman is considered the child of the woman and her husband. If the biological father happens to be someone other than the husband, the biological father has no rights under the law. Michigan lawmakers have called the law outrageous and the father in this case would probably agree.

    A court in charge of the child support determination acknowledged that the youngest son was clearly not the husband's child but still found that he was responsible for child support. This may seem dramatically unjust to parents who have been through a divorce and child support process, but the situation demonstrates the importance of legal representation in certain family law situations, as any Oakland County Child Support Attorney would probably be able to tell our readers.

    Is it really? You get rid of child support and welfare you can cut down on the number of unwanted kids and bastard kids. You take kids away from women who can't afford them and put them up for adoption. No more foreign adoption. Any woman who raises more than two kids on welfare gets sterilized.

    I don't think a man should pay for the rest of his life for a one night mistake. Children are entrapment for men. A woman can claim she was on the pill and then take a man for thousands and even millions. This is a major source of income for women. Look at the divorce rate. Women know a child is a meal ticket from some man or from society through welfare.

    Because all men would normally financially support the kid right? Some guys don't want to he bothered. And it is a shame.

    On the flipside a man should also have an equal say as to the kids upbringing. Like how moms are usually the ones who get custody. Why can't some dads get custody and the woman pay?

    Or the dads not having a say in whether or not she has an abortion. I am sure there are cases where the guy wants the kid but the woman doesn't.

    The scales aren't even. It sucks but they aren't.

    That one night mistake is their responsibility. Don't want it? Take precautions.

    This is one reason why women initiate more than 80 percent of the divorces in this country. It is social and financial
    suicide for a man to do it but the courts are so biased in favor of women that the women get rich off it.

    Because patriarchy?
